Human Anatomy Models: 3 Vertebrae Deluxe Osteoporosis Model, 3B Smart Anatomy
The 3B Scientific Deluxe Osteoporosis Lumbar Vertebrae Model is an excellent model to teach the pathology of spinal osteoporosis and associated degenerative processes.
Unique Features of the 3B Scientific Deluxe Osteoporosis Model, 3B Smart Anatomy:
- Displays 3 lumbar vertebrae and intervertebral discs with medial cut to display and contrast between healthy bone structure, the middle section osteoporotic bone structure and the lower section advanced osteoporotic bone structure with flattened plates, deformation and decreased bone mass
- Vertebrae can be removed from the stand for a more in depth and 3D evaluation
- Includes 3B Smart Anatomy App – 1 year access to the 23 anatomy lectures, 117 interactive models, and 39 quizzes. Can also register the model to extend warranty from 3 to 5 years

The Effectiveness of Physical Models in Teaching Anatomy: A Meta-Analysis of Comparative Studies
The meta-analytical results are: educational methods using physical models yielded significantly better results when compared to all other educational methods for the overall knowledge outcome (p < 0.001) and for spatial knowledge acquisition (p < 0.001). Significantly better results were also found with regard to the long-retention knowledge outcome (p < 0.01). No significance was found for the factual knowledge acquisition outcome. The evidence in the present systematic review was found to have high internal validity and at least an acceptable strength. In conclusion, physical anatomical models offer a promising tool for teaching gross anatomy in 3D representation due to their easy accessibility and educational effectiveness. Such models could be a practical tool to bring up the learners' level of gross anatomy knowledge at low cost.
