The most flexible skeleton available, this model allows for the most realistic movement and range of motion of any skeleton. Perfect for teaching, learning and demonstrating.

The upper and lower limb, hand, feet, shoulder, and hip are mounted with elastic allowing natural movements like medial and lateral rotation of the arms and legs, flexion and extension of elbows and knees can also be shown. Shoulders are flexibly mounted to show natural hyperextension, pronation and supination of the forearms. One hand and foot are mounted on elastic cord to show every bone from all angles. The scapula is flexible and displays movement in coordination with the arm. The pelvis is flexibly mounted to display movement of the hip and the SI region.

The skeleton has a flexible spine and comes with spinal cord, nerve ends, spinal artery and herniated disc. Extrasoft discs are used to help display natural motion. Unlike other models where the discs simply flatten under load, the material for these discs allows them to compress and pressed in the opposing direction of the force applied by the vertebrae above and below. The spine is reinforced by a heavy duty metal support structure.

Drawing from the finest natural skeleton specimen available to cast, artists were not used to sculpt bones to mimic nature. Instead nature was cast to provide the most accurate reproduction. What you will find is the human anatomy that is perfectly captured by way of specialties that are unique to nature. For example the os coccygis comes with a deformity, the skull has an impacted third molar and a rare os interparietale between os occipitale and os parietale.

The skeleton shows all of the 206 - 214 bones of a normal male adult. Every 24 vertebrae, all 12 ribs of each side, every 26 bones of each foot and 27 bones of each hand are individual and single mounted.

A natural cast skull is included capturing the finer details of the cranial anatomy. It is dissectable into 4 parts and features the full dentition. 31 of 32 individual teeth come with full roots and are removable. You may pull teeth out of the maxillae and mandible for individual demonstration and place them back in the socket. The mandible is removable and features a bony flap on one side which can be opened to show the nerve canal, bony structure, roots of teeth and an impacted third molar.

The model includes a 5-leg stand with casters and dust cover. The skeleton is approximately 180 cm / 6' tall when mounted on the stand. The weight is 11 kg / 24 lbs and the base has a radius of 60 cm / 24". Arms, legs and skull are removable and come detached during transport.
