Augmented Reality refers to a technology that enables users to superimpose digital material (images and text) on top of a physical environment. The science of human anatomy is the study of the body's structure and the human body's organs functions. The traditional learning method of human anatomy is based on textbooks and plastic models. The student still faces problems with understanding human anatomy based on these methods. This study aims to create an augmented reality application to address the challenge of seeing and imagining complicated human body's anatomy, and also help students to understand the procedure of Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery and to explore the medical devices used in this surgery. Through the use of an augmented reality-based application, learning human anatomy and the procedure of the surgery will be more enjoyable and interactive. In this AR application, the user performs THR surgery procedures and interactively explores human anatomy. Also, The user may test their knowledge with a quiz about the THR surgery procedure. The Research results show that the AR application received a System Usability Scale score of (82.125), indicating that it is user-friendly, recommended, and good according to the System Usability Scale range.
