Equine Thoracolumbar Junction

The Equine Thoracolumbar Junction model illustrates an important transitional area in the equine spine.  This model is one example of the many other segmental models A.C.E.S. is able to produce of the equine spine.  Each area can be used to study the movement that occurs during life for both health professionals and riders. The Thoracolumbar Junction is the area of the spine that transitions from exceptional stability in the thoracic area to exceptional flexibility in the lumbar area.  This model can be purchased with or without ribs attached. For the rib model, please contact us directly.

Skeletal Models – Durable. Lightweight. Easy to Clean.

All of our skeletal models are detailed replicas of actual skeletons. Their imperfections are identical to the skeleton they came from and the joints all work. The replicas are made of ABS plastic and the parts do bounce and can withstand some wear and tear. However, pieces may break. You may order a replacement for any part of your model. They are easy to put in place and return your model to functional use. Just contact us if you have a problem.



For the care and maintenance of your new canine and equine spines the instructions are as follows.


Cleaning: They can be cleaned with a damp cloth or soap and water as needed. Using a soft brush may help remove dust and dirt from the naturally occurring folds and bumps.


Repair: Should any of your pieces chip or break, repair is simple. It will require several Q-tip applicators and a bottle of pure acetone (fingernail polish remover is the same thing). Do not spill the acetone on family heirlooms, the floor or get it on your fingers as they will wrinkle (more).


Dip the Q-tip into the acetone and then swab both the broken part edge and the edge where the part goes on the spine. Do this several times, then align the two pieces and hold them firmly together, blowing on them until the plastic dries. The acetone will have melted the plastic sufficiently to bond the two pieces together.

If the piece is broken beyond repair, you may call us at 843-900-1502 to order a replacement piece. The pieces are easily removed by undoing the end piece of the cord, sliding the pieces off and then replacing the broken piece with a new segment. Different pieces of the spine run different prices so call for a price.
