Axis Scientific Life-Size Muscled Shoulder Joint Model
The Axis Scientific Life-Size Muscled Shoulder Joint Model is an anatomically accurate representation of the human right shoulder and its muscles. As one of the most complicated joints in the human body, this Axis Scientific model features a highly detailed and anatomically correct representation of shoulder joint muscular anatomy.
This model features the right human shoulder, complete with superficial muscles, tendons, and bones in the area. The muscled shoulder joint comes with a base stand for study and display of the model. Our muscled shoulder joint model is perfect for studying the muscles and muscle groups that provide support to the shoulder joint, as well as their positions within the shoulder’s bony anatomy.
Life-Size Right Human Shoulder Joint Anatomy Model
The Axis Scientific Life-Size Muscled Shoulder Joint Model features 23 anatomical parts, including bones, muscles, processes, and axillary spaces. This model provides a complete and detailed representation of the superficial muscles at the shoulder joint. Some sections of the clavicle and humerus not covered by muscle are visible on the model. The remaining shoulder bone, the scapula, is covered completely by the muscles displayed on the anatomy model.
Impingement of the nerve in the shoulder is a cause of common shoulder pain. This issue can be studied on the model where the major and minor superficial muscles can help visualize where this pinching may occur.
Extrinsic and Intrinsic Shoulder Muscles
The Axis Scientific muscled shoulder joint is a static and rigid representation of the superficial musculature in the shoulder. The muscles in the shoulder can be divided into two groups: extrinsic muscles and intrinsic muscles. These two muscle groups are associated with movements of the limb. The extrinsic superficial muscles come from the torso and attach to the scapula, clavicle, and humerus. There are only two extrinsic superficial muscles in the shoulder, with the rest being deep musculature. These muscles are the trapezius and latissimus dorsi, both prominently displayed on the model.
Intrinsic superficial muscles of the shoulder come from the bony anatomy of the shoulders - the scapula and the clavicle, with an attachment to the humerus. These intrinsic superficial muscles include the deltoid, teres major, supraspinatus (rotator cuff muscle), infraspinatus (rotator cuff muscle), subscapularis (rotator cuff muscle), and teres minor (rotator cuff muscle). The muscled shoulder joint model features a detailed representation of these muscles for study.
Common rotator cuff injuries involved tears in the following muscles (featured on the Axis Scientific Muscled Shoulder Joint):
- Teres Minor
Our Life-Size Muscled Shoulder Joint Model comes with a sturdy base stand that attaches to the model. This base stand is a great for an uninterrupted study and display of the model.
