Enlarged Vertebra Model – using #patientengagement tools
Over the years many people have asked Dynamic Disc Designs Corp. whether we could build a model 2 or 3 times the size for easier viewing. As we understand the need for some to see a larger than realistic model, our company is focused on delivering realistic sized models. Our models are geometrically identical to life size and because we adhere to our strict anatomical core values, there is a simple solution for those customers looking for a larger than life model. It is called a magnifying glass.
The intent is not to be cheeky but practical. There are many links where you can find magnifying glasses. We recommend the 90mm 10x.
Having the patient hold the magnifying glass while you point to the posterior annulus and the dynamic nucleus, for example, can be a very effective way to incorporate and educate patients about internal pain generators when looking through our clear bone models. Those with deficiencies in seeing or those that want to have a closer look at the anatomical details of the spine can do it by looking through a magnified lens.
So before you consider buying a larger than realistic model from somewhere else, consider a realistic size model by Dynamic Disc Designs Corp. and on the side, find yourself a nice magnifying glass to engage your patients in patient education.
