Human Skull Models
Skull models for teaching, training, and demonstration in medical, healthcare, and educational settings
The human skull, not including the 6 auditory ossicles (malleus = 2, incus = 2, stapes = 2), consists of 22 bones, 8 of which are paired muscles.
- Cranial Bones: Parietal (2), Temporal (2), Occipital (1), Frontal (1), Ethmoid (1), Sphenoid (1)
- Facial Bones: Maxilla (2), Nasal (2), Lacrimal (2), Platine (2), Zygomatic (2), Inferior Nasal Concha (2), Mandible (1), Vomer (1)
The skull houses and protects the brain (cerebrum, cerebellum, brainstem) and provides the support structures for the face including the eyes, orbit openings, sinuses, and the nasal cavity.
The ability to handle a human skull model, turn it all around, take off the top to view the inside, and locate muscle origin and insertion sites is vital to the training of those in the medical field. Educational entities of all levels and medical facilities use skull models to teach and demonstrate cranial and facial anatomy.
ProHealthcareProducts.com has human skull models of all kinds; classic, those that can be disassembled, different colors for the bones, muscle origin and insertion color, with muscles attached, and atop a vertebral column. All models are durable in design and build.
