In many different types of classes and specializations from biology to anatomy and sports medicine to physical therapy training, the use of muscle figures and specific models of muscle groups are very important to teaching.
While textbooks are a good option, they lack the 3D factor available with muscle models. Quality models allow for decades of use, either by teachers and lecturers or for students in labs or in study groups. By choosing top quality models, they are an investment in providing additional learning opportunities for students.
Choosing the right muscle models for a specific classroom or training starts with understanding what they will be used for. Some of these models are highly detailed, while others are more basic. Both are good options based on the specific types of educational experiences required.
Whole Body or Specific Muscle Groups
Life-sized, full body muscle models are great for a wider range of teaching options. These are typically a posed model with limited mobility of the various limbs. There are some full body models with removable muscle groups, allowing for better visualization of the interconnection between the muscles and the skeletal system.
Muscle groups can also be highlighted in models of specific limbs or joints. Head models can also include the various muscles of the head and neck.
Color Options and Details
Different models may provide different colors of the different muscle groups and motor innervation. This can be very helpful in sports medicine, chiropractic, physical therapy and other types of classes and trainings.
With bright, easy to spot colors, these are naturals for lectures and instructor-led trainings and lessons.
Removable Components and Additional Systems
In addition to color, various types of models will have removable muscles as well as other body systems. This allows for a full system approach to understanding how the muscles, organs and major systems in the body are positioned in relation to each other.
