Human Skin and Burn Pathologies Model
Three-dimensional block model magnified 75 times the actual size. The front face of the model compares and contrasts normal healthy skin from three different body regions. The epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis, as well as the glands, hair follicles, nerves, and receptors are all sculpted in full relief with contrasting colors. The back face of the model (shown above) shows the progressive severity of injury caused by burns?rom the reddening and transitory damage of the first degree burn, to the blistering, often permanent damage of the second degree burn, to the deep charring and permanent tissue destruction of the third degree burn. Burn segments are fully labeled on the model. Model is mounted on hardwood base.
