Friday, 1 November 2019 | Olivia
Understanding the human body is essential for any medical student, but a fresh body to poke around in is not always readily available. Luckily these helpful and intricate human models provide an accurate substitute and, unlike their real life counterparts, they don't smell. Ranging from desktop pals to an ear fifteen times its natural size, these medical dolls let you go as in depth as you want.
Why Use Medical Dolls?
Recently 3D imaging has become the new fashion, but in a paper published by the American Association for Anatomy the argument is made that physical models have some advantages. Overall assessment scores were 20% higher with a physical model than they were with a 3D simulation. A physical model helps us get our head around the complex spatial relationships much better!
