Muscle models of the micro anatomy of the muscle fiber, life-size muscle torso and figure, and different sexes, for teaching, training, and demonstration in medical, healthcare, and educational settings
There are around 600 muscles in the human body, most of which are paired. Muscles contract to cause movement (occurring at joints by the pulling force acting on levers or bones) by overcoming a resistive fore, controlling or decelerating a resistive force, or stabilizing a resistive force to prevent movement or maintain posture. They possess the characteristic of:
- Excitability: the ability to respond to a stimulus (neurological action potential)
- Contractability: the ability to contract and shorten producing tension or a pulling force
- Extensibility: the ability to be stretched
- Elasticity: the ability to return to their normal length after being stretched
ProHealthcareProducts.com sells 3D Scientific human muscle models with 3D SmartAnatomy of microanatomy, full body anatomy, life size figures, and dual sex models, all with removeable parts to enhance the study of how muscles produce the movements and functions that they do.
