Popular Anatomical Models & Teaching Aids
Find Your Anatomical Model Here!
Anatomical models are three-dimensional, homologous models, which present anatomical structures in life-sized or enlarged forms. However, which particular structure is presented falls under skeletal models, organ models or dental models.
Organ models and skeleton models are the most used models in human medicine. Compared with diagrams in books, anatomical models present anatomical structures in their 3-dimensional form; thus providing an improved learning impact. As a result, anatomical replicas are highly accepted as teaching aids in schools and universities. Anatomy models also come in handy in general practices and hospitals. Here, they are used for clarifying findings or operational methods to patients.
A distinction can be made between different kinds of models:
Skeleton models are plastic replicas of real bones and visually display specific parts of the skeleton. Life-size skeleton models are particularly popular as they present the human skeleton as a whole. These anatomical models are generally attached to a mobile stand that allows the user to view them in an upright position and to move the joints and limbs.
Of course, there are models that only show parts of the human body, such as the knee joint or the elbow. Orthopaedic and physiotherapeutic practices often display models of the spinal column for patient education. The spinal models are used to explain and demonstrate diseases and injuries of the back. Most skeleton models are flexible to demonstrate movement patterns.
The organ models category includes every human anatomy model showing organs or organ systems. The torso model is one of the most popular organ models, as it displays the inner structures of the human torso. Often, the individual organs can be removed from the model, so that the shape and position can be examined in detail.
As with skeleton models, there are also models displaying individual organs. Often, they can be dissected to provide a better view of their structure. With us, you will find e.g. a disassemblable eye model, a brain model, a life-size model of the heart and a transparent model of the lung.
Medical training models are ideal for medical students. They are not only ideal for anatomy education but also for teaching and practicing medical skills. Among our most popular practice models are the injection training arm with realistic vein conditions and the suture training skin. The models are used by medical professionals, students or nurses to practice venipunctures, intramuscular injections and sutures.
Acupuncture models are human body anatomy models that show the localisation of the acupuncture points. Often, the models not only present acupuncture points, but also the meridian zones. In some cases, the models can even be used to practice the placement of acupuncture needles. In that case, the model is made from particularly soft material.
