The specimens on display were preserved through Plastination, the preservation process invented by physician and anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens in 1977, while he was working as at the University of Heidelberg. Body Worlds presents a special collection of specimens designed to show visitors the basics of human health and wellness. The museum quality exhibition includes whole-body plastinates, a large arrangement of individual organs, arterial and organ configurations and translucent slices that give a complete picture of how the body works. Body Worlds tells the fascinating story of how best to fight life-threatening diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart ailments, through healthy choices and lifestyle changes.
Real Human BodiesThe specimens are real human bodies, preserved though a groundbreaking method of preservation called Plastination. Plastinated specimens are dry and odourless and retain their natural structure. In fact, they are identical to their pre-preservation state down to the microscopic level. Specimens on display originate from the Institute of Plastination's body donor program.
