Anatomical Foot and Ankle Joint Model with 3B Smart Anatomy
The 3B Scientific Foot and Ankle Joint Model is ideal for use in doctor’s office and for doctor-patient conferences to demonstrate the anatomy of the foot and ankle joint and the mechanisms of action that can result in a sprained ankle or fractured 5th metatarsal. Used in hospitals, clinics, and educational settings to teach and demonstrate the anatomy and functionality of the 3 parts of the foot and the ankle.
Unique Features of the 3B Scientific Foot and Ankle Joint Model with 3B Smart Anatomy:
- Includes the stump bones of the tibia and fibula and all the foot bones
- Shows the ligaments of the foot (including the plantar suface), ankle, and tibiofibular joint, select tendons and the retinaculum that bind down the tendons
- Model sits on a stand for easy examination, display, and storage
- 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.
