This beautifully detailed skeleton from Axis Scientific serves as the perfect tool for studying both the skeletal and muscular systems. It features muscle origin and insertion points painted and numbered on one half, and flexible ligamented joints of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle on the other. The spine is also flexible, making it a great tool for displaying how the skeletal and muscular systems work together. Comes with a corresponding, full-color product manual.The arms (attached by a bungee cord) and legs (attached with metal hardware) are movable, and the fingers and toes are flexible. This model uses a pelvic-mounted metal stand on a lightweight plastic, 5-caster wheel base for sturdiness.
Axis Scientific has carefully designed a line of products that provide quality models for an affordable price. These models will serve as the perfect go-to guide for both students and educators alike.

Happy to have this model in our lab for quick reference. I wouldn't call it flexible, but the other elements of the skeleton are great.
Having purchased Axis products in the past, I knew what a great value this would be. Having all of these extras on a skeleton really helps make it more than just a skeleton. This is a full on study piece for my students to use. Something tangible that they can get their hands on.
This was a great addition to our clasroom anatomy lab. The ability to move and flex the skeleton at various points - the spine especially - made explaining the role of the skeletal system to my students very easy.
