Description

The first edition of Anatomy Challenge was a brilliant proof of concept, and the second set out to show that it could be sustainable, so we challenged ourselves to plan a bigger and better event. On Saturday, 21 April 2018, after nine months of hard work, the second edition of Anatomy Challenge finally came to fruition.

This year’s focus is Musculoskeletal Anatomy. With the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders in the general population, we wanted to not only showcase LKC Medicine’s unique anatomical teaching, but also demonstrate how musculoskeletal injuries are managed in reality. To that end, we liaised with many external partners – Ageing Research Institute for Society and Education, Singapore Centre for 3D Printing, TTSH Rehabilitation Medicine, and TTSH Foot Care & Limb Design Centre – to create an exhibition that showcased how musculoskeletal conditions could be managed from hospital to home, from 3D-printed joint replacements, to the use of Kinect for Xbox for rehabilitation.

Please note that the 2020 Anatomy Challenge has been cancelled until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions.
