Medical Education, Patient Consultation, Medical Illustration
I had a patient ask me if this was a small piece of modern art. When i explained to them what it was, they were immediately asking to hold and examine it. Finally, a piece of functional science that is also a conversation starter!
The nerves on this model are made of rubber and not a hard plastic like the base of the rest of the model. It was a nice surprise to have these be different types of material.
