A common question we get asked here at Health and Care is ‘What’s the difference between…?’
As you may know we sell a lot of items at Health and Care – some of which seem very similar and so understandingly it can sometimes be difficult to know how to choose. Here then is a rough guide to some popular items..
- Skeletons and Anatomical Models:
However for skeletons that are seemingly the same, differences are more subtle. Generally speaking, the more expensive the item the more detailed the model will be, right down to the smallest bones. So for detailed anatomy lessons or medical uses, for instance, a higher priced skeleton will be worth the money, whereas for basic teaching demonstrations or student learning our cheaper skeletons will do just the job!
- Supports and Braces:
Some braces will helpfully state specific conditions that they are designed to be used for, others not. But essentially, the differences between two similar looking items designed for the same area of the body may just come down to brand – some trusted brands like Donjoy, Aircast, Bauerfeind are the best around that many people will stick with but are often slightly more expensive.
