Erler-Zimmer Hand and Forearm Anatomy Model
The Erler-Zimmer Hand and Forearm Anatomy Model is an anatomically accurate and life-size replica of a human hand and lower arm. This anatomy model is designed to demonstrate the hand's natural movements, as well as the rolling movements of the ulna and radius. This anatomical model is ideal for use when studying or teaching anatomy to medical students.
- 1 x Forearm and Hand Skeleton
Who Can Use This Hand and Forearm Model?
The Erler-Zimmer Hand and Forearm Model is designed for educational purposes, and can be used to teaching / training medical or anatomy students. It is also ideal for patient education, for example when discussing painful bone conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, or trigger finger. Those who may benefit from using this anatomical model for either training or study include:
- Doctors, Nurses, and Paramedics
- Orthopaedic Doctors
- General Practitioners
- Physical Therapists
- Personal Trainers
- Physiologists and Osteologists
What Can I See On This Anatomical Skeleton Model?
With an anatomically accurate design, this model displays the key bones in the hand and forearm. For the hand, this includes the metatarsals, metatarsal bones, and phalanges. In the forearm, you can identify the radius and ulna.
Does This Hand and Arm Model Demonstrate Movement?
This Erler-Zimmer hand and forearm model is moveable. The hand-bones features on this anatomical model have all been individually mobile-mounted on wire, enabling users to demonstrate natural hand-joint movements with ease. The included radius and ulna are also moveable, enabling demonstrations of the rolling movements of the lower arm (i.e., pronation and supination).
