PROS / Most of the joints in this model are designed to allow for realistic movement in several directions.
CONS / Phil has very few removable parts, and no components of non-skeletal body systems.
VERDICT / Physiological Human Skeleton Model Phil serves well as a demonstration of the skeleton’s movement but does not offer the comprehensiveness of higher-rated models.
Editor's Note: This review has been removed from our side-by-side comparison because it no longer ranks as a top 10 product. The original review is below, but check out our current top 10 about Human Skeleton Models here.
Physiological Human Skeleton Model Phil specializes in realistic movement, with flexible joints throughout most of his body. Whereas our top-rated model Sam offers flexibility in all the same joints as Phil, Sam got higher ratings because he includes detailed markings indicating elements of the muscular and nervous systems. Phil is also similar to Flexible Fred, but again Fred was rated more highly for including more details and because Fred offers the additional benefit of holding his flexed spinal poses.
Even though this model lacks many of the advanced features of our higher-rated models, Phil’s many flexible parts have earned him a spot on our list of the best human skeleton models.
Physiological Phil offers a unique style of flexibility in many of its joints, including pelvic movement not seen in other models. While this skeleton lacks the details of many of our higher-rated models, its extensive and realistic capacity for flexion makes it one of the best options for focusing on the movement of the skeletal system.
