Midcentury Anatomical "Life Like" Medical Model of the Male Torso by Nystrom



This anatomical medical model was produced by the Nystrom Company of Chicago, U.S.A. in circa 1969 in the period midcentury style. The model is composed entirely of molded rubber of differing densities and has various removable parts and pieces to expose the various internal organs of the human body. The outer plates of this model are fastened to the base with metal loops and hooks and hold quite securely. The model is on a rotating stand and was clearly made for the use in an educational setting. The model has a label on the rear of the base describing how to care for it, and the Nystrom maker's tag on the front.
