Get ready to discover how much velocity, precision and sheer strength it takes to reach the pinnacle of the sporting world! With the SuperBodies mobile app, you control and navigate the camera pod through the body of the world’s greatest athletes by dragging your finger or tilting the device.
With cutting-edge 3D animation and original videos, the SuperBodies mobile app allows users in a game play format to peel away the human skin to reveal what truly happens on the inside when star athletes perform.
Join Dr. Greg Wells on a self-guided tour through the circulatory, skeletal, muscular, nervous and respiratory systems. Dr. Wells (host of the Gemini-Award winning “SuperBodies” segments) is a scientist, researcher, professor and applied human physiologist specializing in extreme human physiology who has worked with numerous World Champion and Olympic athletes.
From the supersized lungs of a swimmer to the heart of a boxer, from the brain of a badminton player to the fast-twitch muscles of a 100 metre sprinter, you are never short on unearthing how the body reacts, compensates and copes with intense training, maximum punishment and pressure-filled competitions.
