Mini human skeleton: This miniature anatomical skeleton features a movable jaw on springs, removable calvarium, removable arms and legs, and so packs lots of detail. The skeleton is mounted on a metal rod that rises from the base and the pelvis of the skeleton fits onto this. The arms and legs of the mini skeleton are removable for individual study.
Mini human skeleton model with durable parts and a sturdy stand. The spine of this skeleton is flexible with soft rubber disks cushioning the individual vertebral column bones. The vertebral foramen house the soft, flexible spinal nerves running from C1 down to the sacrum. The cervical arteries are represented by a red cord running down either side of the cervical spine. The visible herniated disk located between the L4 and L5 vertebra makes it easy to demonstrate this type of injury to patients, clients, or students. This anatomy skeleton is great for health and wellness centers, anatomy students, chiropractors, and physical therapists doing patient consultation.
Skeleton stands 46cm tall.
What is the human skeleton?
So we all know the basic parts of the human skeleton; the skull, the ribs, and the spine. But there’s so much more to this wonderful biological creation that is, literally the building block of our whole body. The bones in the skeleton support the muscles, protect the organs and give us humans a defined structure, all 206 of them.
The skeleton of an adult human consists of 206 bones. It is composed of 270 bones at birth, which decreases to 206 bones by adulthood after some bones have fused together. It consists of 80 bones in the axial skeleton (28 in skull and 52 in torso) and 126 bones in the appendicular skeleton (32 x 2 in upper extremities including both arms and 31 x 2 in lower extremities including both legs). Many small and often variable bones, such as some sesamoid bones, are not included in this count.
