Osteoporosis model from HeineScientific
This osteoporosis model consists of three medial cut vertebrae with intervertebral discs. A healthy bone structure is displayed on the upper vertebra and an osteoporotic bone structure is displayed on the middle. The lower vertebra shows osteoporosis in an advanced stage with a dented cover and base disc (fish vertebra). The weight of the osteoporotic vertebral bones is greatly reduced.
The osteoporosis model is mounted on a sturdy base and the individual vertebral discs can be removed from the stand for closer observation.
