6-Part Female Pelvis Model with Ligaments and Organs, 3B Smart Anatomy
Unique Features of the 3B Scientific 6-Part Female Pelvic Model with genitourinary anatomy, 3B Smart Anatomy:
- A very detailed and life-size female pelvis presents the genitourinary anatomy with topography of bones, support ligaments, vessels, nerves, pelvic floor muscles and female pelvic organs
- It presents the whole pelvic floor with partially removable midsagittally sectioned external anal sphincter, external urethral sphincter, deep and superficial transverse perineal bulbospongiosus
- The rectum, uterus with fallopian tubes, ovaries and vagina are also removable and can be disassembled into both halves by midsagittal section
- The right pelvic half demonstrates the divisions and topographical anatomy of the common iliac artery, the external and internal artery and also of the common iliac vein and the external iliac vein. The right sacral plexus, right sciatic nerve and right pudendal nerve are also shown
- Two hip sockets, the pubic symphysis, the sacrum, coccyx, and the fifth lumbar vertebra with intervertebral disc are presented in detail
- A midsagittal section through the fifth lumbar vertebra, sacrum and coccyx, allow both halves of the pelvis to be disassembled revealing a part of the cauda equina in the vertebral canal
- The left half of the fifth lumbar vertebral body is removable. The right half of the model shows the following pelvic ligaments: inguinal ligament, sacrotuberous ligament, sacrospinous ligament, anterior sacroiliac ligaments, iliolum,bar ligament, anterior longitudinal ligament, interosseous sacroiliac ligament, posterior sacroiliac ligament and obturator
- 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.
