Axis Scientific 3-Part Life-Size Human Skull Model with Detailed Study Guide Booklet
The Axis Scientific 3-Part Life-Size Human Skull Model is an anatomically accurate replica of the human skull.
Our life-size skull model is made up of all 22 bones of the skull and can be divided into three parts: the removable calvarium (skull cap), the articulating mandible (jawbone), and the base of the skull.
Removable Calvarium (Skull Cap)
Attached by magnets and small hidden pegs, the calvarium can be easily detached from the skull base to show the internal anatomy of the skull. The fully developed adult calvarium presents formed grooves, furrows, and depressions for the cerebrum and various meningeal vessels. Along with bony landmarks and realistic bone texture, the coronal, lambdoid, and sagittal sutures are also visible on the model.
Base of the Human Skull with Bone Suture Lines
Cast from a real human skull, the Axis Scientific Skull Model includes great relief of the foramen, fossa, bony landmarks, and suture lines.
Once the calvarium is removed, the internal anatomy of the base of the skull is exposed with more details, including bony landmarks, foramen, and fossa. This part of the skull model contains bones from both the neurocranium and the viscerocranium. The facial bones presented on the base of the skull model are the lacrimal, nasal, inferior nasal concha, maxilla, vomer, zygomatic, and palatine bones. The skull model also displays the sinuses in order to guide the study of voice resonance and air inhalation through the nose. The supraorbital foramen, infraorbital foramen, and mental foramen are all presented on the model. The sutures connecting the bones of the skull, except for the non-sutured mandible, are all visible.
Articulating Mandible (Jawbone)
This exceptional anatomical model also offers a fully articulating mandible from a single, discreet spring, to demonstrate the natural mobility of the human jaw. The mandible has a full set of adult teeth with individual tooth modeling, as well as an impacted wisdom tooth for dental students and professionals. With artificial mandibular condylar cartilage on the condyle, users of the skull model can simulate realistic mandibular articulation and mastication.
