Surprisingly, even simple joints like our elbow are surrounded by a number of muscles, which play a pivotal role in the body. Without these vital muscles, we would be unable to perform a variety of tasks, but additionally, our joints would be significantly less stable without them. With the combined efforts of these shunt and spurt muscles, we are able to perform many movements. For those interested in visualizing the variety of muscles around joints, Anatomy Warehouse has collected a variety of muscled joint anatomy models. Great for study or for patient education, these models are always a great investment.
Muscled Joint Anatomy Models
The human muscular system is tremendously complex. Besides simply helping us move and lift objects, the muscular system’s more than 600 muscles help us maintain posture, assist in circulation, and keep joints and bones stable within the body. Each joint is surrounded by a variety of smaller muscles, referred to as shunt and spurt muscles, that assist in movement and stability of the joints. For students becoming familiar with the muscular system, and for physicians attempting to explain it to patients, anatomical models of these areas can be extremely helpful.
Each of our joints is supported by many muscles, from the rotator cuff of the shoulder to the hamstring and quadriceps of the lower leg. It can be difficult for students to understand the relationship between these muscles and the joints, but with anatomy models, students and patients can get a hands-on perspective. One of our most popular sets is the Muscled Joint Model Set, which collects a muscled hip, knee, elbow, and shoulder all together at a bargain price. This set is manufactured in the USA and is fully articulated. The set is also accompanied by a series of key cards, which provide a wealth of information at your fingertips.
With Anatomy Warehouse’s exceptional collection of muscled anatomy models, including joint anatomy models, you can go to the head of the class. Best prices, best support, and best variety, every day!
