LiU invention at Tekniska Museet

Virtuellt obduktionsbord på Hälsouniversitetet

The virtual autopsy table has pride of place at the Tekniska Museet’s (Technology Museem) newly opened exhibition on innovations, an invention from Linköping University.

The museum asked Swedes to vote for the 100 most important innovations of all time. Classics like the wheel, gunpowder, printing, and antibiotics were present, but also more unexpected phenomena like the zipper, cosmetics, and the skateboard.

One section of the exhibition, “Life and Death”, describes things that deal with food, health care, and war. On show as an example of the latest big thing is the virtual autopsy table.

“It’s there as an interactive station that can be connected to several other innovations that were voted in. We are incredibly glad to be one of the first museums in the world to show it in a permanent exhibition,” said project manager Magdalena Tafvelin Heldner in a press release.

With the virtual autopsy table, users can interact with large three-dimensional medical images from people both living and dead. The Faculty of Health Sciences recently installed an example as the first in the world for educational purposes.

The “100 Innovations” exhibition is the largest ever at the Tekniska Museet. It opened on February 25 and will remain for at least three years.
