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. Methods: Via a user and learner-centred design approach, augmented reality technology can assist education of physiotherapy students through augmentation and annotation. Results: Using projection mapping Augmented Studio enables display of anatomy such as skeleton and muscles on the body in real time as..View full abstract
