Skeletal and Muscular Systems | Structure and Function of Living Organisms | BIOLOGY SAM SKELETON MODEL
Sam is an exceptional skeleton, made in Germany, ideal for studying the human body in a secondary school or university setting. It is our most human-like skeleton due to many of its details; the mounting of the axial skeleton allows natural movement of the skull on the 1st and 2nd cervical vertebrae and a special mounting of the rib cage prevents sagging. Its fully flexible spine allows it to be put in realistic positions to demonstrate posture and human movement. Furthermore, its skull, left arm and leg are fully detachable so these parts can be easily studied in depth.
The amount of detail and labelling on the skeleton makes it perfect for the study of human joints, muscles and ligaments. Muscle insertions, muscle origins, iliocostal/longissimus muscles, ligaments, major bones, bone parts, fissures and foramen are all clearly labelled and highlighted. The spine even features a slipped disc between the 3rd and 4th lumbar vertebrae.
Overall, a worthwhile investment for any school or university biology lab.
