Worldwide Leader in Orthopaedic and Medical Models

Composite Bone

This Sawbones model has physical strength properties similar to real bone

Most commonly used:
• When actual strength properties of real bone are required
• For testing, comparing or designing implants and other devices

Foam Cortical Shell

Foam cortical shell models are made of a rigid foam shell with inner cancellous material. These models cut and drill easier than the plastic cortical shell models.

Most commonly used for:
• Total joint replacement
• Internal fixation
• Fracture and pathology models
• General orthopaedics (where a medium cost bone is desirable)

Plastic Cortical Shell

Plastic cortical shell models are made of a rigid plastic shell with inner cancellous material. Plastic cortical shell models are very durable. These models are ideal for cortical screw application. The white plastic cortical shell bones are radiopaque and are used mainly as a reference point.

Most commonly used for:
•Intermedullary rodding
•Internal fixation
•Product display
•Surgical navigation
•Facet or SI injection
•Discotomy

Solid Clear

Solid clear models are made of a solid clear plastic. They can be made with or without the intermedullary canal. They are very durable and an economic alternative to high polished models. We can also install customer-provided implants.

Most commonly used for:
• Product display

Solid Foam

Solid foam models are made of rigid foam throughout. This is an economical material for general anatomy.

Most commonly used for:
• External fixation
• Limited total joint replacement
• Internal fixation

Solid White Plastic

Solid plastic models are made of a rigid plastic. Some models include the intermedullary canal. They are very durable.

Most commonly used for:
• Patient education
• Product display

Transparent Plastic Cortical Shell

Transparent Plastic Cortical Shell models are made with a clear plastic shell and inner cancellous material.

Most commonly used for:
• Intermedullary rodding where visualization of the locking screws is critical

High Resolution

High Resolution models are designed for use with Xray or Fluoroscopy and contain a visible high contrast cortical shell.

Most commonly used for:
• External fixation
• Total joint replacement
• Internal fixation
• Intramedullary rodding
• Cortical screw application
