Our knees really keep us going every day. The combined structures in this area allow us to bend, walk, kick, and jump. The many muscles in this area include the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles, many of which originate in the insertions behind the patella, or kneecap. Of course, it is very important for medical students and professionals alike to understand the muscular system, especially in this very detailed area. For enhanced understanding, we suggest anatomical models such as our collection of muscled knee joints.

Walking, running, jumping, dancing, using a pogo stick – Any movement you can think of that uses the legs probably involves the use of your knees! These incredible joints help us in so many actions, and are under pressure every day. The muscles around the knee are numerous, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, and the flexors and extensors of the legs, not to mention the ligaments present. They help keep our movements stable, while still allowing for extensive flexibility.
For those studying the muscles of the lower body, we’ve found that hands-on study works best. While there are a number of excellent models showing a range of anatomical and muscular features, we love recommending the Knee Joint Anatomy Model with Removable Muscles in 12 Parts, a complete anatomical model from 3B Scientific. With this exceptionally detailed model, students can easily remove many of the muscles in this area, which reveals color coded areas to indicate muscle origin and insertion points. This model also features parts of ligaments in the area. Besides educating students, this model is wonderful for those physicians trying to teach their patients about this detailed area. Massage therapists, physical therapists, and even fitness instructors and personal trainers will love this model as well.
