Somso®. Use this medical-quality, life-size, functional model to study the movements of the human hip joint. Manipulate the femoral head's position in the acetabulum of the pelvis to demonstrate anteversion (raising of the thigh), retroversion (retracting of the thigh), abduction (lifting of the thigh to the side), and internal and external rotation. Also explore how ligaments impact the hip's range of motion. Remove this characteristic ball-and-socket joint from the chrome-plated support bar for up-close, hands-on examination. Includes an illustrated booklet of hip anatomy and special silicon oil for reconditioning the simulated ligaments. Overall size with base, 18 x 20 x 35 cm. Weight, 1.25 kg.
