Q & A
Q: What does miniature mean? Is this good for a desktop model?
A: Miniature means this model is only 34 inches in height, and yes, it's perfect for desktops, examination rooms or other smaller display areas.
Q: How much does the spine flex?
A: For this model, the flexibility refers specifically to the spine and not any of the skeleton's extremeties.

This miniature skeleton can be removed from its base for additional study and added movement, however, the skeleton cannot hold a pose.

It's larger than I thought it would be, and has more detail. It still fits perfectly on a desk. The spine is flexible and it holds whatever position you put it in; the spine isn't floppy and loose like some of the pictures make it seem. It's only a drunk skeleton if you position it so!
Met expectations, nicely detailed. Fixed positions would be beneficial, however that would of course increase the cost. An insert for how to attach the legs would be helpful. Spline could be more flexible. All in all a good product for the price.
Great for use in our yoga studio when I have students asking about the benefits of certain poses and stretches. Its not full size, which makes it easier to use in my opinion, and takes up less storage space in our small business.
I use this mini skeleton in my chiropractic office. I am able to show patients how their spine should be bending and how much theirs is actually bending. So it is a good quick reference for them and helps me share the treatment plan more successfully.
The best thing to do with this baby model is to use it to practice how to change diapers and take care of the baby. This baby model definitely does its job well!
