    Hi there, I'm a final year student and (finally) decided I'd like to get a foot bone model for further anatomy revision and to help explain things to patients in the future..
    There's a few out there, and so I was wondering what the best quality models are, and also whether it's better to get a loose (elastic) or firm (wire) structured model.
    Any help would be great!

    Hi Rory,

    If you want something a bit more dynamic, there's some 3D Computer software you can buy, which allows you to view the bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, muscles,blood supply etc,

    I'm also about to start my final year, and I think this will be an investment I'll be making, once I set up.

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    Something like this for £20 would do just fine.

    There are also several decent apps you can download onto your iPad to explain anatomy to them in a more '21st century' way should you be so inclined. (Some examples of a couple here and here)

    Or the cheapest option - spin your computer screen round to face them and get on google images.
