Ten Facts about the Human full body Skeleton

The average full body skeleton is made up of total 206 bones of various shapes and sizes. These bones differ in shapes and weight according to the body and they may also differ from person to person. Thehuman anatomy skeleton includes all the joints and the bones in the body. Each bone in the human body is a complex structure that is made up of many cells and minerals and protein fibres. The skeleton acts as a support and protection for the soft tissues that makes up the whole human body.

The bones are divided into two major divisions – The Axial Skeleton And The Appendicular Skeleton. The axial skeleton has 80 bones in the Skull, Hyoid, Ribs, Auditory Ossicles, Sternum and Vertebral column and runs along the body’s midline axis. The exact replica of the bones should be made in the process to make sure that the working of the bones is clearly stated. The bones should be aligned in a proper way else the whole Artificial Human Boneset may collapse while its being on display or studied upon. To take care of this situation you have an option to acquire the skeleton with the stand

The Skeleton Anatomy Model with Stand helps you to take a closer look at the bone structure. The easy mechanism makes sure that the drawing of the skeleton afterwards is a jiffy process and requires a very less time. As working on a human skeleton during the classroom and clinic sessions happens on a daily basis, the drawing of the skeleton should be easy process with precise joints.

The 10 major facts about the human anatomy model and the bones in a human body and the human skeleton anatomy and physiology are:

  • 1. The babies when born have 350 bones while the adult has 203. When we grow old, many bones fuse together. For example the cranium and the pelvis fuse together as we grow old but are separate bones when we are born.
  • 2. The spine is the base of the human skeleton and hold up all the bone. The spine is the main structure in the human body as it connects the back bone to the main joints. The spine has 33 small bones and is called vertebrate. No wonder it is also called the backbone as it acts the major bone of the human body.
  • 3. The largest part of the human skeleton bone is the femur that is the upper part of the thigh. As the thigh bones have to bear the major weight of the body, it has to be strong. The smallest part in the human anatomy bone is the stapes bone.
  • 4. The human skeleton has the 20% of the overall body weight. The human skeleton is not only very strong, but is also weighted according to the body mass.
  • 5. The skeleton is not only the framework of the whole body but it also produces the two major cells of the body, the red and the white blood cells. This helps in the production of the two of the most vital cells of the human body. The skeleton also stores the minerals and protects all the vital organs of the body.
  • 6. The different types of bones are called the sesamoid bones, that is, all the long, short and flat bones.
  • 7. The skeleton has two types of bones. The compact ones and the trabecular ones also called the spongy bones. The compact bones accounts for the 80% of the total bone mass. Theses bones may be spongy in nature but are very strong.
  • 8. The skeletons have joints where the two bones are connected and have categorizing joints which provide mobility. This allows flexibility in the human anatomy structure.
  • 9. The types of joints in skeleton are fibrous joints, cartilage joints and synovial joints (which are not directly joined).
  • 10. The bones are further classified on the basis of mobility. Synarthrosis that has little or no mobility. The Amphiarthrosis which have slight mobility and the Diarthrosis which are freely movable.
