Standing 5-ft 6-in tall, this skeleton towers over the competition. He offers an exceptional level of detail, including major and minor anatomical features and structures, right down to the tiniest detail. As an added study feature, the left side of the skeleton features clearly labeled painted origins and insertions for more than 150 muscles, making him a great addition to studies of the muscular system as well. The removable skull features a removable calvarium, or skull cap, secured with pegs as well as magnets for added stability. Inside the skull, every suture, foramen, and groove is visible, allowing for a full study of the internal and external structures alike. The left side of the skull features origins and insertions for 48 muscles, clearly labeled for easy identification. When replaced on the skeleton, the skull sits comfortably on the axis, allowing realistic movement of the skull. The hyoid bone is present, and is easy to study with or without the skull in place. The vertebral column is positioned to replicate the natural curvature of the spine. The skeleton is fully articulated, and can replicate all natural movements at the joints. The arms can clearly display flexion, extension, abduction and adduction, circumduction of the shoulder, and even pronation and supination of the radial-ulnar joint. Similarly, the legs can perform all of the movements of the acetebulofemoral joint and knee. The muscle origins and insertions of the body are also displayed, making this skeleton a great study aid for any classroom or medical environment where study of the muscular system is prized, including medical school, physical therapy, and massage therapy. Model includes pelvic mount stand. Made by Axis Scientific and backed by a 3 year warranty. Measures 66 inches (5 ft 6 in) tall. Weighs 25.5 lbs.

I didn't receive the manual that was suppose to come with the skeleton so I don't know what muscle is attached where
Great studying device! I wish the nerves were identified, but otherwise, it is accurate and fantastic!
