Osteoporosis Models

4 Piece Osteoporosis Model
Impressive didactic model for comparing osteoporotic and normal thoracic vertebrae.  Ideal for medical studies and patient consultation.  The 11th and 12th thoracic vertebrae are shown.  Reproductions of sequential osteoporotic thoracic vertebrae with narrower intervertebral disc are located on the left of the stand.  The upper vertebra is divided in the middle.  The magnetically attached vertebral half can be removed easily to show the cut surfaces.  This allows clear visualization of the fractured upper part of the vertebral body caused by sintering, i.e. collapse of the bony substance in the course and as a result of osteoporosis.  Degenerative changes in the bone, manifested as osteophytes, are also identifiable.
    For comparison, reproductions of two corresponding healthy vertebrae with intervertebral disc are provided on the right side.  One half of the upper vertebral body is magnetically attached and can be removed.  A detail illustration on the base depicts two 3D micro CT images obtained from bone biopsies.  These illustrate the microacrchitecture of the osteoporotic bone, which has a lower bone density compared to healthy bone.A95

Deluxe Osteoporosis Model
This osteoporosis model consists of 3 medially divided lumbar vertebrae with intervertebral discs. For anatomical comparison, the upper section shows healthy bone structure, the middle section osteoporotic bone structure and the lower section advanced osteoporotic bone structure with flattened plates, deformation and decreased bone mass. For detailed anatomical study the vertebrae can be removed from the stand. The osteoporosis model is a great high quality anatomical teaching.

Osteoarthritis Hip Set
   Set of 4 hip models, reduced size, illustrating: degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) and fractures; erosion to joint articular cartilage; progression of degenerative joint disease; osteophytes (bone spurs) at the articular surfaces.  Each of the four models is 3-1/2” x 5” x 4.”  Comes with base and education card.

Osteoporosis Knee Set
   Set of 4 knee models (3/4 scale) illustrating: Degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis); Erosion to joint articular cartilage; Progression of degenerative joint disease; Osteophytes (bone spurs) at the articular surfaces. Comes with base and education card.
No. SH249-BB. Only $114.95


Osteoarthritis Vertebrate Set
   Each model is comprised of two life-size Vertebrae. The first pair shows one set with normal anatomy and one with a \"bulging\" herniated disc. The second set of Vertebrae shows one with bone and disc degeneration, and the 4th with advanced osteoporosis with marked bone compression and bone spurs. Comes with base and education card.
