Not only is the femur the heaviest bone in the human body, it is also the longest, measuring approximately 26% of an individuals height. This is especially useful for anthropologists identifying a skeleton. The bone itself plays host to a variety of muscle origins and insertions, including the gluteal muscles, adductors of the thigh region, and quadratus femoris.
Study of this distinct bone is important to a variety of medical professions, and with the ORTHOBones femurs, students will be able to observe the femur in the most realistic way possible. ORTHOBones are constructed to resemble real human bone, with two distinct layers - The hard outer shell and the softer inner core. These are also useful for displaying the features of the bone to patients in situations like hip replacement surgery or injury. These bones are so realistic they can be used as a realistic substitute for testing medical devices during development and training, as well.
