Osteoporosis Model

The Osteoporosis Model is an impressive didactic model which compares osteoporotic and normal thoracic vertebrae. This makes it ideal for medical studies and patient consultation, allowing you to demonstrate and learn about the effects of osteoporosis in a visual, hands-on way.  

The model depicts the eleventh and twelfth thoracic vertebrae. 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 for a cross-section view.

The vertebral half is magnetically attached so can be removed easily to show the cut surfaces. This allows for clear visualisation of the fractured upper part of the vertebral body caused by sintering, the 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 detailed illustration on the base depicts two 3D micro CT images obtained from bone biopsies. These illustrate the micro-architecture of the osteoporotic bone, which has a lower bone density compared to healthy bone.
