Q: Is this model numbered?
A: Yes, this model is numbered. You can easily locate different structures of the external, internal and middle ear by matching the number with the corresponding term in the manual that comes with the model. You will be able to see the tympanic membrane, Auditory Ossicles, and the Cochlea, to name just a few of the structures.
Q: Can this model be removed from it's base?
A: Unfortunately this model is not meant to be removed from the base. While you cannot remove the model from it's base, you can clearly view all of its structures without removing it from the base.
Q: I have lost a piece to this model. Do you sell replacement parts for this particular item?
A: Please contact customer support at 800-422-1134 to see if we have the part that you need. In some cases, we are able to send out replacement parts.
Q: What parts are removable?
A: The internal ear anatomy (cochlea and associated canals and nerves) can be removed, as well as the auditory ossicles, which show the 3 bones of the ear: the stapes, incus and malleus.
Q: What is this model made of?
A: This model is made of a high-quality PVC plastic and is hand-painted.
Q: Can this model be used by children?
A: Yes, nearly all of the products we carry at AnatomyWarehouse.com can be used by children. Because the removable parts on this model are small, we do recommend that younger anatomists are supervised during use.
