The skin of an adult person stretches over a body area of around 1.2-2.5 m². It consists of two layers – the top layer (epidermis) and a connective tissue layer below it called the dermis Below the dermis is the subcutis that consists of fat cells and connective tissue. However, this this is not referred to as skin in the true sense. The model consists of three individual models that represent sections of the human skin with a magnification of x. The microscopic structures within the skin such as tactile corpuscles, glands and blood vessels are modelled in plastic in the sections and aid spatial comprehension of the microscopic interrelationships. All three models can be removed individually, are located on a common base and are attached together by magnets. The respective microscopic distinctions of the skin are illustrated with regard to the positions on the human body such as the palm of the hand, back of the hand and scalp. The model of the papillary layer that is localised in the palm of the hand, for example, shows typical features such as the thick epidermis by comparison and the clear interlocking between the epidermis and dermis When inspecting the model of the reticular layer that is on the back of the hand, for example, you recognise in particular that this is distributed in small fields through the furrows when viewed from above. The longitudinal section through the human scalp illustrates the shaft of hair protruding over the epidermis as well as the position of the root sheath where the typical layering and position of the hair roots can be recognised. All anatomical structures of the skin such as nerve vessels and tactile corpuscles have been accurately and spatially realised on the models.
