Made in Germany by American 3B Scientific, this scientific grade human skeleton model is unique in its near lifelike realization of the joint mechanisms. Phil the physiological human skeleton model allows you to demonstrate the inward and outward rotation of the arms and legs and the extension and flexion of the knee and elbow joints. The flexible spine allows for natural movement (lateral inclination, movement and extension, rotation). The bones of the hands are mounted on wire to demonstrate their natural positions. The foot bones of this human skeleton are mounted flexibly to enable movability. Even the restricted mobility of the iliosacral joint and the sacrococcygeal joint can be demonstrated.
Phil is cast from a natural human skeleton and is accompanied by a 3 year warranty through 3B, as well as a stand and dust cover. He is crafted of unbreakable plastic and is of comparable weight to a real skeleton. Teeth are individually inserted and his skull is made of 3 parts. Phil is 75.8 in tall and weighs 21 lbs.
Q & A
Q : Do Phil's shoulder blades rotate?
A : Unfortunately, Phil's shoulder blades do not rotate. This is a fairly unique feature of a skeleton, and is currently only available on the Special Functional Skeleton, Frank. Phil's special features include inward and outward rotation of the radial and ulnar bones, as well as a flexible spine, and natural rotation at the hips.

Our practice was looking for a skeleton that could move naturally, and didn't want to spend $1000+. Phil was recommended by a colleague, and we love him. I wish the spine had more features, like some of the skeletons have prolapses etc, but otherwise, he's perfect for our needs.
