Abstract

Background: An understanding of how to translate anatomical knowledge and application of body mechanics to dynamic scenarios with real-life clients and movement is often a challenge for physiotherapy students. Objective: Augmented Studio is an augmented reality system that helps facilitate this by projecting anatomical structures over moving bodies and allowing annotation of these structures.
