Have you ever heard of the acetabulofemoral joint? While you may not have heard its long name, the hip joint is an incredibly important moving part of the body. Our hips support most of our weight, and allow for many movements, including running and walking. The hips also are the most important elements of human posture. Studying the composition and actions of the hip is extremely important for anyone in medical school, especially those in physical therapy. Our collection of hip models will help everyone learn about this fascinating joint.
Accurate and Detailed Models of the Hip Joint
Among the most commonly utilized joints in the human body is the hip. Its primary function is to support the weight of the body during movement, as well as when standing still, and it is located between the femur and pelvis. While its bones have several tubercles and other bony landmarks, the presence of so many muscles makes it very hard to palpate or feel most of them, with the exception of the greater trochanter and condyles.
Studying the hip can be fun with a hands-on model, though. We offer a huge range of anatomical models to help with the study of this joint and the surrounding area.
