Anatomy Trains 2nd Edition

Producer: Primal Pictures Ltd

The 'Anatomy Trains' 2nd Edition is a revolutionary way of analyzing soft-tissue patterns, and developing strategies for unwinding these patterns via fascial and myofascial work and is an essential functional anatomy resource.
Using the metaphor of train lines, tracks and stations and presenting this via high resolution interactive 3D models of human musculature, Tom Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.

Major benefits:

  • New easy-to-use interface and intuitive functionality.
  • Anatomically accurate interactive 3D models can be rotated 360°, labelled and are supplemented by clear and concise text descriptions and videos. Combination views, to show the complex relationships of two or more lines, have also been included.
  • A comprehensive and interactive 3D muscle atlas updated to include 45 muscle function and eight gross motor animations, and ten anatomy trains movie clips. More than 90 muscles can be displayed individually.
  • Export and print content royalty-free for your own presentations, patient education and student handouts.

New content includes:

  • a comprehensive muscle atlas containing over 90 muscles shown individually.
  • 27 additional muscle function animations including:
  • Lateral flexion of the trunk
  • Rotation of the trunk
  • Respiration
  • Opening/Closure of the lips
  • Elevation/Depression of the TMJ
  • Elevation/Depression of the hyoid bone
  • Contraction of the pelvic floor
  • Flexion/extension of the IP joints of the hand

4 new gross motor animations including walking upstairs, running and jumping forward.
‘Label’ and ‘Save’ options for the animations so you can use in your presentations.
10 anatomy trains movie clips created by Tom Myers, explaining the following:

  • Arm lines stretches
  • DFL – quadratus lumborum
  • Fascial net
