Anatomical Model of Cervical Spine with muscles, Rudiger Anatomie
The Rudiger Anatomie Cervical Spine with Muscles Model is an excellent model to teach the anatomy and pathology of the cervical region.
Unique Features of the Rudiger Anatomie Cervical Spine Model with Muscles includes:
- All 7 cervical vertebrae, intervertebral discs, and occipital plate cast from an actual human skeleton, and individual parts are numbered and matched to the included key
- Anterior and posterior cervical muscles that are realistic in appearance and flexible to demonstrate movement and actions
- Includes the brain stem, spinal cord, spinal nerves, vertebral arteries, and the main muscles of the larynx
- Model can be removed from the stand for a more in depth and 3D evaluation

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.
