Soft discs add greater realism to this spine model! This unique spine shows how the discs deform during normal and abnormal positioning. Use it to demonstrate any number of pathological conditions of the spine such as scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis, or subluxations. Herniation of the vertebral column can be demonstrated with compression. In addition, the special mounting allows unobstructed viewing during demonstration and display of the spine. This spine model includes spinal cord and spinal nerves. The spine comes with its own, removable stand.
