Erler-Zimmer Spinal Disc Degeneration Model
The Erler-Zimmer Spinal Disc Degeneration Model can be used to develop a comprehensive understanding of healthy vs unhealthy vertebrae. For those planning to work with elderly patients, or those studying to become osteologists or physical therapists, this model is a fantastic training and study tool. The models are magnetically mounted onto a plexiglass base, and are flexible to enable demonstrations of movement.
- 4 x Vertebrae Pairs
- 1 x Plexiglass Base
What Is the Purpose of This Spinal Disc Model?
This spinal disc anatomy model is a quality tool for providing training on and enhancing the study of the pathology of various conditions affecting the vertebrae. This model, displaying four vertebrae pairs, offers a visual and hands-on way to deepen understanding of degenerative disc disease, and conditions affecting the vertebrae.
Degenerative disc disease refers to the natural wearing down of spinal discs, which is the rubbery, shock-absorbing cushion between the vertebrae, that occurs naturally over time.
Who Can Use the Spinal Vertebrae Model?
The Erler-Zimmer Spinal Model is the perfect training tool for those entering medical and healthcare fields. It can also be a fantastic aid for patient education. Those who may benefit from use of or training with this anatomy model include:
- Doctors, Nurses, and Paramedics
- General Practitioners
- Carers for the elderly
- Orthopaedic Doctors
- Physical Therapists (Rehabilitation Centres)
What Can I Identify with This Anatomical Model?
On this detailed and quality model, you will find four vertebrae pairs mounted onto a plexiglass base. The vertebrae are all flexible-mounted, enabling demonstrations of movement. Using these pairs you will be able to identify:
