This true-to-life anatomical replica of the 3B® bone-like pediatric spine of a human child's vertebral column when aged about 5 years old is especially interesting for those working in the areas of anatomy, pediatrics, orthopaedics and pediatric radiology. The unique material of the spine anatomy model makes it almost visually indistinguishable from a real vertebral column. The flexible spinal column model, including occipital plate, pelvis and sacroccyx, is stand-mounted. This vertebral column model is particularly useful in studying the phases of bone growth. This includes:

  • Vertebrae: Partially incomplete development of vertebral bodies and vertebral arches
  • Sacrum: As yet incomplete fusion of individual sacral vertebrae, which commences at around the age of 15
  • Pelvis: Still open Y cartilage as main growth plate of the acetabulum; there is no connection between the hip, pubic and ischial bone parts (didactically fixed with brackets in the model); these fuse around the age of 14 to 16

Flexible material makes up the spinal canal, spinal cord with cauda equina and exiting nerve roots.
