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 middle ear contains three tiny bones known as ossicles: the malleus, the incus and the stapes. The ossicles were named, in Latin, for their distinctive shapes; malleus = hammer, incus = anvil, and stapes = stirrup. The ossicles directly couple sound energy from the ear drum to the oval window of the cochlea.
- The photos shown are examples of what your specimen will approximately look like. Each ossicle is unique and will vary slightly in size, shape, color, etc.
