Human Adult Female Femur, Osteoporosis
KO-170 $82.00

This femur is custom-made to represent a female femur affected by osteoporosis. Mimicking the effects of osteoporosis, we have reduced the weight of this bone (from that of a healthy 261 grams to 147 grams). Loss of bone mass in the femoral head creates a greater likelihood of hip fracture. Osteoporosis is sometimes confused with osteoarthritis. While osteoporosis involves a loss of bone mass, osteoarthritis, a joint disease, involves the loss of cartilage separating and cushioning the connection between two bones. As a result, the bones rub together painfully and visible bone spurs may result.
