Muscle and Motion, founded in 2001, is a cutting-edge technology company specializing in creating unique 3D animations that illuminate the intricacies of human movement and sports biomechanics. Our expertise lies in capturing the essence of anatomy and biomechanics, focusing exclusively on the body’s musculoskeletal system in motion.
With precision and creativity, we bring the complex interplay of muscles, joints, and bones to life, providing invaluable insights into the mechanics of movement and athletic performance.
At Muscle and Motion, our core focus is on dissecting the art of movement.
Unlike traditional anatomical apps/software, we do not delve into the depths of the entire human body, excluding facial organs, heart, lungs, and similar structures.
Instead, we specialize in showcasing the complexities of active muscles and joints, offering a unique view of how the human body functions during various physical activities and sports, like strength training exercises, functional training exercises, stretching, yoga poses, etc.
Muscle and Motion is not merely a technology company; we are educators at heart.
Our animations have a transformative impact on learning experiences, breaking down complex anatomical and biomechanical concepts into digestible visualizations.
By simplifying the understanding of movement, we enable learners to grasp the nuances of sports techniques, injury prevention, and rehabilitation strategies. Our work ultimately improves athletic performance, anatomy & biomechanics knowledge, injury prevention, and overall physical well-being.
Our products serve a wide audience, from personal trainers and anatomy students to physical and massage therapists, educators, athletes, and anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge of the muscular motions of movement.

It started with one cancer patient’s dream to give back to the fantastic medical professionals, physical therapists, and fitness trainers who helped him recover and rehabilitate after four life-threatening battles with tumors…
A long battle with cancer…
When most people think of cancer, the detrimental effects of chemotherapy come to mind. But what fewer people think about is the enormous toll the disease takes on your body and mind, and the colossal challenge it is to gain back lost muscle after the battle with the disease itself is over.
In 1995, Amit Gal Alon was diagnosed with a brain tumor, the beginning of over ten years of struggle with cancer. Unable to eat or exercise and hardly able to move his body at all, Amit lost 15 kilos of muscle during his treatment.
He was so weak that even the simplest motion of lifting his arms above his head became a task too difficult to perform.
Developing the most visual tool to understand the anatomy of muscles
When the treatment concluded, and his body had beat the tumor, Amit enrolled in physical education at college. Besides his study of Clinical Kinesiology and muscle movement, he started exploring 3D Graphic Design. During his studies and later as a teacher of anatomy and kinesiology, he started seeing the limitations of textbook illustrations:
Why were there not a better learning tool for visual learners? One that made it easy to get an overview of how muscles move?
Scientifically sound resources developed by leading experts in anatomy
In 2001, Amit’s efforts led to the official launch of Muscle and Motion — which, over the last 18 years, has grown into one of the best available resources for easy-to-understand visual representations of human anatomy and muscle functions.
To guarantee the scientific quality of the resources, Amit believes that meaningful collaborations are the foundation of innovation and progress. Amit teamed up with Dr. Gill Solberg, whose advanced studies specialize in clinical kinesiology, posture disorders, and adapted physical activity for people with special needs, adding an extra dimension of knowledge to our growing library of resources.
Still expanding with new learning tools, resources, and technologies.
Today, Muscle and Motion offers a range of apps and online courses, helping professionals and enthusiasts in the sports, health, and fitness spheres in over 100 countries worldwide. With a video library containing over 4,000 hours of detailed 3D animation of specific muscle contractions and movements, we make it easy for students across almost 300 universities worldwide to understand muscles and their movements.
Almost two decades after launching Muscle&Motion, Amit Gal Alon and his team are still passionate about making muscle movement easy to understand for people around the world. We continue to develop new content and adapt to new technology platforms so our users get the best learning materials possible.
