The latest member of the skeleton model family by Erler-Zimmer was named Oscar today. The model is a reproduction of a male adult skeleton made of a durable, unbreakable plastic material; the about 200 bones of the skeleton correspond with real human bones in size and nearly in weight.

Unlike other skeleton models with metal joints, Oscar has flexible rubber attachments in the shoulder, hip and knee joints that allow life-like, sliding joint movements. Different from the skeletons with metal joints Oscar is able to move the joints freely; the joint surfaces slide on each other and do not stick out like the joints in other skeletons do. This allows to demonstrate not only turning movements, but all possible joint movements. The quick fasteners allow to remove and re-assemble the joint connections in seconds. This makes removing or assembling the limbs a Childs play.
The spine of the skeleton shows spinal nerves, the vertebral artery and a dorsolateral disc prolapse.

The three part skull was digitalized and modified to correspond with the standard anatomy. The size corresponds to European standard size, all important structures, fissures, foramen and processes are represented. The skull can be dismantled into base, lower jaw and skull cap. The skull can is adjusted to the base with metal pins and held with magnets. Due to this technology no pin can break and there will be no gap between skull cap and base. There are no hooks that could break or deform.
The teeth are manufactured separately and inserted into the jaw.

The model will be delivered with a 5-spoke roller stand, sturdy, smooth-running and removable.
Furthermore, Oscar comes with a suspension ring; if necessary it can be hung on a special stand or on the ceiling. The skeleton offers a good value for money and is also affordable for pupils and students as learning and teaching model.
The model will be presented on this year’s Medica fair in Dusseldorf for the first time.
