This skeleton model shows the full skeleton in life size from head to toe and includes the following additional features:


  • Visible ligaments at large joints on the right side, such as the shoulder
  • Illustrations of the origin and attachment of skeletal muscles using red and blue color on the left side
  • Naming of muscles and bones in accompanying document
  • Vertebral artery
  • The spinal nerves
  • A lumbar disc herniation
  • A very flexible spine


Mounted on a stand, the plastic skeleton measures approx. 177 cm in height, and the level of detail on the bones is really good. Virtually all joints on the left side are held together by metal buckles/metal, allowing limited ability to demonstrate the natural movement of the joints as well as the ability to completely dismount (eg the left arm). Joints on the right side are primarily held together by brown rubber ligaments, and movement in almost all of these joints is severely limited. The spine, on the other hand, is extremely flexible, and the movement is described below.

The skeleton rests on a solid stand, which can be easily moved because at the bottom it consists of a 5-branched column base with a corresponding number of wheels. A simple and transparent dust bag is also included.


As mentioned above, the origin and attachment of skeletal muscles are marked with red and blue color and numbered on the skeleton (only on the left side). The bones are also numbered. A comprehensive overview with their names in Latin and English is not included, but you can download and print the overview via our website - see under the product images on the left.

Anatomically speaking

Anatomically, the skeleton shows all the bones of the body (including the tongue bone and sesamoid bones). Cartilage in the chest and teeth in the upper and lower jaw are also included.



The left side of the skeleton also shows the most important ligaments in the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints.



Furthermore, the skeleton model is supplied with the vertebral artery, the spinal nerves and a herniated disc in the intervertebral disc between L3 and L4 (3rd and 4th lumbar vertebra).



The skull can be quickly disassembled and divided into 3 (skull cap, mandible and the remaining part of the skull).



The level of detail on the bones is really good. The scope of "osseous landmarks" includes both large details such as the tuberculum majus and minus on the humerus (upper arm bone) as well as smaller details such as the linea aspera on the back of the femur (thigh bone).



The epiphyseal lines are also shown on the upper and lower extremities (arms and legs).

Flexibility

In terms of movement, the model is extremely flexible in the back, but not in other joints. The joints on the left side are held together by metal clamps/metal that limit the range of motion. For example, rotation in the knee joint cannot be demonstrated, although both flexion and extension (bending and stretching) are possible. The ligaments on the right side severely limit the range of motion in these joints.



Once the spine is bent, it stays bent until it straightens again.

The range of motion includes flexion-extension, lateral flexion and rotation in both the lower back and chest.



Furthermore, all movements of the head can be demonstrated corresponding to the upper neck joint. Movements in the lower neck joint (between C1 and C2) cannot be demonstrated in a lifelike way.

Clinically speaking

Clinically speaking, this model has been developed to understand disorders such as ligament damage, scoliosis, disc herniation and root affection.



The skeleton is also ideal for understanding many other diseases, disorders and genes in the skeleton.
