Incorrect training, if not performed properly, can in certain cases affect the pelvic floor structures of female athletes. As part of the “Actitud” educational initiative, the aim is to raise awareness of the issue among female athletes. In addition, affected female athletes can work on improving pelvic floor function using a mobile app.
For the “Fundació Institut d’Investigació Sanitaria Illes Balears” we created an anatomical 3D model of the female pelvic floor. This was integrated into the website in the form of a webGL application and is also used in training courses. The main task of the 3D model is to convey basic anatomical knowledge in order to better understand disorders and possible therapy measures.
Within the app, the model of the pelvic floor can be rotated and enlarged. The most important anatomical structures are given names. Since the various structures of the pelvic floor overlap, the 3D application includes the option of hiding various layers so that all structures can be viewed. In addition to the Spanish version of the application, an English version was created and also a version that shows the Latin names of the structures.
