Q & A
Q : Does Fred hold his position?
A : Thanks to his specialized spinal "cord," he can hold the position of his spine. Fred is great for displaying the movements of the vertebral column, and will be a welcome addition to any doctor's office, physical therapist's office, or even a yoga studio. He cannot hold the position of his limbs.

Medical Education, Patient Consultation
We picked Fred because of how easy it is to pose him, but we fell in love with him because of the detail. There's nothing that would make Fred better, though I wish he was a little less costly. Quality costs more, I guess! Also, another reviewer mentioned putting a hat on him, and I'll have to try that!
What's in a skeleton that Fred the skeleton model doesn't have? Nothing. This skeleton torso model Fred really has everything that one needs in a skeleton model: it's informative, realistic, detailed, and everything. This skeleton model is perfect!
Fred's articulation is our favorite aspect. Understanding of natural movement is automatic; Fred makes it obvious. And hey, he looks great in a fedora.
A must for the chiropractor that wants to explain extremity ailments and how they relate to spinal conditions. Great for showing various rib subluxations.
