Functional Elbow and Hand Joint Model with Ligaments For Sale
The Rudiger Anatomie Functional Elbow and Hand Model is life-size and provides functional capabilities to demonstrate elbow joint movements flexion and extension, forearm movements supination and pronation, and wrist movements flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction. Constructed with highest quality materials, this combined elbow and hand model is great for teachers to demonstrate to students, and physicians and therapists to demonstrate to patients, the skeletal and ligamentous anatomy of the elbow, forearm and wrist joints and the hand. Allows for the demonstration of possible pathologies involving the ligaments.
Unique Features of the Rudiger Anatomie Functional Elbow, Forearm, and Hand Model
- Shows the skeletal anatomy of the elbow joint, radioulnar joint, and wrist joint (portion of the humerus, full radius and ulna, and full hand) and associated ligaments
- A unique combination of the entire elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand Functional elbow on stand for easy display allowing individual structures of the elbow joint complex, wrist and hand, yet can be removed for easy viewing and identification during study
- Provides stretchable ligaments allowing the demonstration of elbow joint movements – flexion and extension, forearm movements pronation and supination, and wrist movements flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction

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.
