When you were a child, did you build models? If you were born in the 60s or 70s, chances were you had such building toys as Legos®, Lincoln Logs, or other building blocks that allowed you to make some pretty cool things, from houses and other buildings to people and animals.
Of course, they didn’t move. You did that yourself, with your hands and your imagination. Still, they were fun to play with and no doubt kept you busy for hours.
If you are a younger adult, you may have been fortunate enough to enjoy the next generation of building blocks, including K’nex®, which are ultra-cool and – unlike earlier building sets – have pieces that actually move. With these toys, you could design functioning roller coasters, a T-Rex that walked, or any number of vehicles like planes with swirling propellers or cars with wheels that turned.
So, what’s so special about K’nex and other similar toys? They move! A model that moves looks so much more lifelike than a static model, which – while it fosters imagination – isn’t very realistic. With movement options, your toys become more like the real thing.
Fast forward a few decades….you’re now a chiropractor, a physiotherapist, a spine surgeon or other spine specialist, an osteopath, a massage therapist, a pain management specialist, or a teacher of medicine. You’re now considering purchasing lumbar spine anatomical models to assist in educating either your students or your patients. So, which models do you choose…the “Legos” or the “K’nex”?
If you really have the best interest of your students and/or patients in mind, you’ll choose the movable models, even if they cost a little more than those static 3-D models that have been around for a while but don’t truly provide a good feel for what the spine is all about and how it functions. Dynamic Disc Designs makes what spine professionals are calling the best models available – 3D models that offer a realistic 2-part disc providing 6 degrees of freedom…and so much more.
These lumbar spine anatomical models come in a variety of price ranges from the basic and budget-minded Classic LxH model to the more sophisticated and detailed Professional LxH model. Designed by a long-time chiropractor, they are made to last and can withstand daily use for years to come.
Many satisfied customers note how well these lumbar spine models stand up to repetitive use, making them well worth the investment. Many practices purchase more than one and are pleased with the value. User reviews tell the story.
While I have used many models for patient teaching over the years, these models are so much more accurate and realistic,
-says Ali Moshirfar, MD, of the Orthopaedic and Spine Surgery Institute.
The dynamic design allows the patients to understand the pathology of disc herniation very clearly. I strongly recommend these models for patient education and surgical consent discussions.
