With this oversized and detailed model of the human ear from Axis Scientific, it is easy to thoroughly study the internal structures of this crucial organ. The model is roughly 5 times life size, allowing for observation of even the tiniest structures of the ear.
The model easily dissects into three pieces, each representing an area of the ear:
- External Ear - Auricle; External acoustic meatus; Tympanic membrane
- Middle Ear - Tympanic cavity; Mastoid antrum; Auditory tube; Auditory ossicles (Malleus, Incus, Stapes)
- Internal Ear - Cochlea; Vestibule (Oval window, round window); Semicircular canals (Anterior, posterior, and lateral); Vestibulocochlear nerve
Each piece and structure is clearly numbered by hand for easy identification with the included key. The model is displayed on an attractive base, making this model ideal for medical studies, as well as patient education.
With the full range of Axis Scientific models at your fingertips, it is easy to teach and learn about the human body without spending an arm and a leg. Our expert support team and exceptionally detailed models will make your anatomical studies simpler from the start.

Q & A

Q: Can this model be removed from it's base?
A: Unfortunately this model is not meant to be removed from the base. While you cannot remove the model from it's base, you can clearly view all of its structures without removing it from the base.

A: This model is made of a high-quality PVC plastic and is hand-painted.
Q: Can this model be used by children?

Medical Education, Patient Consultation, Medical Illustration
I take this model around with me when I do hearing screenings at schools. The kids think it is a fun model because its size and its different parts and if they have questions I am able to point out areas to make them feel more comfortable.
Pretty cool oversized ear kit that gives students in my Anatomy Lab insight into the different parts and functions of the human ear. I believe this is the 4th product from this line I have bought, and I will definitely be buying more.
I actually had to get this for an audio class, as the professor wanted us to really know how the ear works and how to craft great sounds for it. I liked how it broke into different parts, allowing us to study the inner ear better than just looking at it in books. Never realized that the ear was so complex
