Functional Knee Joint Model with Ligaments For Sale
The Rudiger Anatomie Functional Knee Joint Model is life-size and provides functional capabilities to demonstrate knee joint movements -flexion, extension, internal rotation, and external rotation. Constructed with highest quality materials, this knee model is great for teachers to demonstrate to students, and physicians and therapists to demonstrate to patients, the skeletal, ligamentous, and cartilage anatomy of the knee joint and possible pathologies involving the ligaments and menisci.
Unique Features of the Rudiger Anatomie Functional Knee Joint Model
- Shows the skeletal anatomy of the knee joint (femur, tibia, fibula, and patella) and associated ligaments and meniscal cartialge
- Functional knee joint on stand for easily display allowing individual structures of the knee joint, yet can be removed for easy viewing and identification during study
- Provides stretchable ligaments allowing the demonstration of knee joint movements – flexion, extension, abduction, internal rotation, and external rotation
- Allows for an up-close view of the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments to demonstrate the various mechanisms of injury to these important stabilizing ligaments of the knee

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.
