Most people know that osteoporosis can cause the spine to become curved, and this model shows why. The model (6" x 10" x 8") allows viewers an up-close look at spinal abnormalities that include a vertebral compression fracture and kyphosis. The model’s lifelike, hard-cast vertebrae and soft BIOLIKE 2™ spinal cord and discs can be disassembled for closer inspection. Mounted on base. Great for explaining osteoporosis to patients and students.
