The human elbow is one of its most commonly engaged joints, and while its structure may seem simple, it includes a number of prominent bony landmarks, such as the olecranon process, and is also home to the ulnar nerve, more commonly known as the “funny bone.” It also can experience a number of injuries, such as tennis elbow and a number of muscular injuries. To help facilitate a full study, Anatomy Warehouse has collected a number of models for students and medical professionals alike.
Elbow Anatomy Models - The Funny Bone is No Joke
While its range of movements is somewhat limited, the elbow is incredibly vital. It’s very likely you’re using your elbow joint right now! With its various assorted muscles and nerves, understanding the elbow can be complicated, but not with Anatomy Warehouse’s collection of elbow models.
The elbow itself is fairly simple. It is essentially the structures at the juncture between the humerus and the ulnar-radial meeting. It also includes a number of ligaments and cartilage. One of our best models to display this joint is the Deluxe Functional Elbow Joint Anatomy Model, a life size functional model with an extended manufacturer’s warranty against defects. It also ships free with Ground shipping in the contiguous United States.
Did you know that the “funny bone” is actually not a bone at all? It’s actually called the ulnar nerve, and is located along the ulna, one of the bones of the lower limb. It is the largest unprotected nerve in the body, and is commonly injured when one hits their medial epicondyle of the humerus. Some theorize that the name “funny bone” comes from its relationship with the humerus. To study this and other nerves located in the elbow, the Muscled Elbow Joint is a great option. It is an inexpensive but informative option for students and medical professionals alike.
