Mini Shoulder Anatomical Model – Bone Cross Section
This one-half natural size anatomical model of the shoulder complex provides functionality in evaluation of the shoulder joint and acromioclavicular joint.
The new shoulder joint cross-section illustration mounted on the base, enhances the medical or teaching professional's ability to explain what is happening from "within" the shoulder joint. This model comes with the 3B Smart Anatomy App which allows users to register their 3B item to extend the warranty from 3 to 5 years plus free 1 year access to the 3B Smart Anatomy app which includes 23 Anatomy lectures, 117 interactive models and 39 quizzesNow included with all 3B Scientific Anatomy models is the 3B Smart Anatomy app.

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.
