An anatomically accurate adult knee model for injection and aspiration of synovial fluid from the knee joint, from both the lateral and medial aspects, using ultrasound-guidance or palpation.
The robust sealed knee includes knee joint, patella, patellar tendon and the suprapatellar space.
Key anatomical landmarks are clearly visible and easy to detect under ultrasound, enabling injection and aspiration to be practiced, and accuracy improved.
Performing knee aspirations and injections are fundamental skills required for Undergraduate Medical Education, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Rheumatology*
