Female Pelvis Anatomy Models and Charts
The word “pelvis” comes from the Latin word for “basin,” an appropriate term considering the shape of this bony structure. Located at the base of the spine, between the abdomen and thighs, the pelvis helps protect the organs of the reproductive system, while bearing the weight of the upper body. In women, the pelvis is slightly larger and wide than the male pelvis, having evolved this way to help ease the pain of childbirth. For medical professionals and students, it is important to develop an understanding of this structure.
A great model for this is the Female Pelvis Anatomy Model with Ligaments in 3 Parts. This high quality model offers a detailed look at this structure. Cast from an original human specimen, we love this German made model’s durable construction and range of information presented. The model has several removable pieces, and details a number of pelvic ligaments as well.
For those who prefer a chart, we recommend the Pelvic Floor Musculature Laminated Chart. This oversized poster includes a huge range of information for studying this vital anatomical structure, including the way these muscles interact with different organ systems.
