So what type of anatomical models will help set up your physical therapy anatomy laboratory? We’ve listed a few top anatomical models used for physical therapy training and applications.
- Lifting Demonstration Figure: Provide your clients with a graphic demonstration of the effects of correct and incorrect lifting techniques on the spine.
- Shoulder Joint with Rotator Cuff 5-Part: This model shows the musculature of the rotator cuff and the origin and insertion points of the shoulder muscles.
