The human elbow is one of its most commonly engaged joints, and while its structure may seem simple, it is the home of a number of important bony features, as well as the very important origin or insertion of a number of muscles. It is subject to a number of potential muscular injuries as well. To help facilitate a full study, Anatomy Warehouse has collected a number of muscled elbow joint models for students and medical professionals alike.
The Muscles of the Elbow Anatomical Models
Forming at the junction of the humerus and the radioulnar joint is the elbow, a hinge joint that is accompanied by a series of many muscles and ligaments. These ligaments help the elbow maintain stability in a potentially unstable area. Because of the large number of muscles that originate or insert around the elbow, it is a very common spot for injuries, including tennis elbow. As with the other muscles in the body, it is vital that students have a strong understanding of the elbow surrounding the elbow, and that doctors be able to explain it readily to patients.
Many motions are performed at the elbow joint, so its health is very important. We recommend the Elbow Joint Anatomy Model for those looking for a visual and tactile study aid. Its removable muscles and raised, color coded muscle origins and insertions make it an incredible addition to any student’s repertoire. It also features a three year manufacturer’s warranty, making it a smart buy for a variety of settings. For those looking for something a little more budget conscious, the Muscled Elbow Joint Anatomy Model offers a more basic but still informative approach to this nuanced area. It includes an informative educational card and all of the major muscles and ligaments.
