Human Ear Models
Anatomical models of the ear – outer, middle, and inner ear with moveable parts for teaching, training, demonstration and understanding of the human ear for use in medical, healthcare, and educational settings
The human ear is designed with three major parts:
- The outer ear which is a shell like structure to collect and funnel sound waves into the tympanic membrane via the external auditory canal
- The middle ear is basically an air-filled space or cavity in the temporal bone of the skull containing three tiny bones (malleus or hammer, incus or anvil, and stapes or stirrup) that connect the tympanic membrane with the oval window and the inner ear and helps decrease the acoustic energy
- The inner ear is composed of the cochlea, the vestibular and the auditory nerve. The cochlea transforms sound waves into electrical impulses which are sent to the brain where they are interpreted into sounds we know and understand. The auditory nerve carries the information between the cochlea and the brain. The vestibular system helps detect and interpret the body’s movements helping us to maintain balance
Human ear models are designed with removeable parts so the anatomy student can see the connections between the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear.
ProHealthcareProducts.com has 3B Scientific human ear models with 3B Smart Anatomy providing removeable parts and is divided into sections for better viewing and understanding of the macro components of the ear.
