Get Body Smart was developed over time by an educator with over 20 years of teaching experience at university level, Mr. Scott Sheffield.  The site was created to give students, teachers, and the intellectually and scientifically curious a convenient and free source for information about the human body and its amazing physiology. Mr. Sheffield has been running the site for 14 years, and he is constantly updating the site, making it an indispensable resource for anyone looking to study human anatomy.

The site is fully animated, and works a lot like an interactive book!  The main page presents a variety of topics on the right side, including an overview, in depth sections about the systems of the body, and a section of quizzes for those looking to test their skills.  When you choose a section, the page opens up to a variety of tutorials, as well as relevant quizzes.

Each tutorial covers a selection of information.  In the example above, we can see that the muscles of the arm, forearm, shoulder, and much more are explored individually, allowing visitors to brush up on specific areas of the body, muscle groups, and even physiology of systems.

Another wonderful feature of GetBodySmart is the selection of physiology animations which can be played on tablets and smartphones through the use of an easy to install app.  This allows students to take their study on the go, and can be used on both Android and iDevices.

We’re always excited to see the new features of GetBodySmart, and can’t wait to see what’s next from Mr. Sheffield.  Check out this site for anatomy study and review!
