Didactic Vertebral Column with Pelvis
The didactic vertebral column model with pelvis is characterised by its colour-coded illustration of the different types of vertebrae, while also clearly demonstrating the structure of the human spinal column.
- Didactic vertebral column
- With pelvis
- Height (total): 71cm
- Colour-coded for teaching purposes
- Mounded on a stable base
The human spine consists of different vertebrae, which are grouped into the following sections:
- Cervical spine
- Thoracic spine
- Lumbar spine
- Sacrum and coccyx
The didactic vertebral column illustrates these divisions and clearly shows them by using a different colour for each section.
The cervical vertebrae (C1-C7) are shown in light green, the thoracic vertebrae (T1-T12) in dark green, the lumbar vertebrae (L1-L5) in light blue, and the sacrum and coccyx are coloured dark blue.
The Didactic Spinal Column Model in Detail:
The following anatomical structures are shown on the vertebral column model:
- Squama occipitalis
- Individual vertebrae
- Paired arteria vertebralis
- Intervertebral discs
- Spinal nerves
- Male pelvis with symphysis
Besides the anatomical structures mentioned, the didactic spinal column model with pelvis also shows a herniated disc between L4 and L5.
Thanks to the clear representation of the spinal structure provided by this model, it is used as an unequivocal teaching aid in universities and physical therapy schools. The anatomical model is also ideal for use in doctors' offices and physical therapy clinics for the purpose of patient education.
The didactic model of a vertebral column and pelvis comes delivered on a stable base, but it can also be removed for better visualisation.
