Super Skeleton on Roller Stand – Sam the Super Skeleton
The 3B Scientific Super Full Body Skeleton on Roller Stand is a full-size skeleton with a flexible vertebral column to demonstrate spinal mechanics, hand-painted muscle origins and insertions to demonstrate muscle line of pull as muscles cross joints, flexible plastic ligaments over joints to demonstrate the forces acting on joints and the ligamentous support against displacement forces, and a herniated disc at the L3-L4 vertebral segment to demonstrate nerve root compression. Great for teaching and learning the many aspects of the musculoskeletal system components. Used in hospitals, clinics, schools, and universities to teach and demonstrate human skeletal anatomy.
Unique Features of the 3B Scientific Super Full Body Skeleton (Sam) Model with 3B Smart Anatomy:
- Full body skeleton is waist mounted on a metal roller stand (painted white)

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.
