MEDICAL MODELS OF EXTREMITIES
Our unique medical model design process and manufacturing techniques makes developing acrylic bone models a snap! We can take the most complex combinations of implants, provide peace of mind as we walk with you through the development process in real-time, and deliver models that are 100% accurate and on-time!
Quality, anatomically accurate medical models have extensive uses for patient explanations, staff training, and surgeon demonstrations. Our translucent extremity models facilitate in-depth explanation of a variety of orthopedic surgical techniques, such as:
Open Reduction/Internal Fixation (ORIF)
Detailed models help demonstrate hardware and prosthetic placement and procedures for internal fixation of displaced, comminuted, or unstable fractures of the long bones, metacarpals, metatarsals, and phalanges. We provide precise models of the humerus, radius, ulna, tibia, fibula, femur, foot, and hand. These models are ideal for demonstration or training purposes, particularly where there is little or no prior understanding of the procedure.
Our models can also easily be used to demonstrate wire fixation or percutaneous pinning. This is especially useful when dealing with the bones of the hands and feet, such as the phalanges. Since the models are translucent, it is simple to show every angle of the procedure and hardware placement.
Patients and even healthcare support workers often do not have a good understanding of tendon repair/tendon transfer procedures, particularly regarding the underlying bony anatomy. Using clear models simplifies explanation of the exact positioning of the affected tendons and operative sites.
Carpal Tunnel Release
Carpal tunnel syndrome has become a widespread problem in our modern world of computers and repetitive motion. More and more patients are requiring carpal tunnel release procedures. Our hand models are perfect tools for explaining the complexities of nerve entrapment and operative approach.
