THE THIN MAN SEQUENTIAL ANATOMY FIGURE
The Thin Man lets you explore body regions layer-by-layer for an in-depth understanding of the human body.
Detailing human anatomy in a way no chart or torso can duplicate, the Thin Man is a near life-size full-colour rendition of the human body which by means of a sequence of transparent Mylar overlays, allows the peeling away of layer after layer of tissue, progressing ever more deeply into the body. This provides extremely valuable insight into the 3-dimensional spatial relationships of principal structures, major vessels and organ systems.
Displayed on the back side of the Thin Man is a full-figure view of the skeletal and nervous systems.
Highlighted at each level of the sequential dissection are the following features:
1st layer: Musculature of the head, neck, thorax and abdomen, (superficial muscles on the right side of the figure; deeper muscles and ribs on the left.) 30 structures keyed and labelled.
2nd layer: Brain, thyroid and salivary glands, eye, tongue, teeth, heart and major vessels, lungs, stomach, liver and intestines. 44 structures keyed and labelled.
3rd layer: Sinuses, nasal septum, tongue, trachea, heart chambers and vessels, pancreas, spleen, large intestine. 58 structures keyed and labelled.
4th layer: Oesophagus, pleura, aorta, inferior vena cava, intercostal vessels and nerves, autonomic nerve trunk, kidneys and adrenal glands. 27 structures keyed and labelled.
5th layer (full figure): Brain, pharynx, vertebral column, rib cage, muscles of upper and lower extremities, pelvic organs and muscles. 77 structures keyed and labelled.
In all, well over 200 anatomical features are named, indexed and keyed.
The Thin Man is 160cm tall and is mounted on a warp-proof composition board which is supported by a tubular steel frame on a tip-proof four-legged stand.
