Anatomical Skeleton Models To Enhance Teaching And Understanding

The human body, particularly the skeletal system, provides a wealth of potential learning and research opportunities since it is very prone to injury and trauma. Using anatomical skeleton models to help patients understand injury and how it can affect the entire system is made much easier through the use of visuals to help patients see the issues the professional is discussing. This is often very important for patients with spinal injuries where a doctor, nurse or rehabilitation therapist may need to be able to show, in detail, how issues with the legs, arms and even the jaw may all be impacted by nerve or bone damage to the spinal cord area.


The best way to provide this type of three dimensional view into the human body is through the use of anatomical skeleton models. These life-size or miniature models allows the medical health expert to demonstrated the connection between various parts of the body as well as to allow the patient to actually be able to manipulate the anatomical skeleton model to gain first hand understanding. This can be invaluable when discussing issues such as soft tissue damage, nerve damage and of course actual bone damage.


Anyone involved in teaching human physiology, biology, development or any type of medicine or pre-med classes will find anatomical skeleton models a true asset in their classroom. The students will naturally engage in much more experiential learning through being able to work with a variety of types of anatomical skeleton models. This will enhance lectures, textbook reading and other types of projects, plus many students will actually learn better through the use of models than through other types of learning.


For a very comprehensive teaching and learning opportunity, disarticulated anatomical skeleton models are ideal. These skeletons are actually not put together, but are designed to allow students to work with each individual bone and even to study muscle attachment to the various joints, bones and sections. Typically these types of anatomical skeleton models will have the very intricate bones such as found in the hands and feet assembled for one side of the body but apart or disarticulated for the other. Students can then work through the correct placement and identification of the parts by comparing the two.


Color coded anatomical skeleton models and models with flexible, movable joints and spinal cords are a great asset to any teaching facility. Many of these anatomical skeleton models that have flexibility and movement are actually mounted to rolling stands at the hips, allowing the spine to be rotated in a normal inclusive movement. Head mounted or skull attached models are also a great option and provide more lower body positioning options.


The full sized and mini options for anatomical skeleton models are designed to be life-like in all aspects but are lightweight and easy to maneuver. Roller stands and dust covers make storing and moving these models very simple, ideal for use in multiple settings both in doctor's offices as well as teaching locations.
