Real Human Foot
We believe education is the greatest gift osteology can share and that every human specimen can contribute to the advancement of science. These specimens are provided to us by retired physicians, medical researchers, dental professionals, and former university medical programs. We also work with accredited donor programs. A small sample - often antiques that simply do not qualify for medical/research grade usage - are made available to osteology enthusiasts worldwide so that they may continue to educate and inform.
The foot is an anatomical structure found in many vertebrates. It is the terminal portion of a limb which bears weight and allows locomotion. The human foot is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
- The photos shown are examples of what your specimen will approximately look like. Each specimen is unique and will vary slightly in size, shape, color, etc.
- The articulated human foot comes fully constructed by our team of master articulators. This version is not flexible.
- The disarticulated human foot comes in the form of a "bag of bones." The bones will not be connected to one another.
- The loosely strung human foot is threaded on nylon string, making it extremely flexible.
