Life-size osteoporosis model
By means of 7 life-size vertebrae, the vertebral column osteoporosis model from HeineScientific shows the damage to the body of the vertebra caused by osteoporosis.
The osteoporosis model shows a cross-section, which illustrates the vertebrae on one side and the intervertebral discs on the exterior. The other side of this model shows a longitudinal section through the body of the vertebrae, so that the osteoporosis stages are very clearly identifiable.
The following are shown:
- Healthy vertebra with intervertebral disc
- Wedge vertebra
- “Fish vertebra” (vertebral body with concave base and top plate)
- Various osteoporotic bone structure
