I am studying through CBI at the moment and would like to purchase a pelvic model for the purpose of study, but also as a tool for teaching later on. I know that there are a number of online stores that sell them, but most of those are out of my price-range (for now anyway). I found a couple on ebay, which seem a lot cheaper, but there must be a reason for that?
I would really appreciate any input on what to look for when purchasing a quality pelvic model? So far I have (1) make sure it's life-size and (2) those made of resin, with screws are better quality.
Thanks in advance!
I know this was from months ago but I thought I would reply anyways : ) I'm also certifying through CBI. I recently bought a pelvic model off of ebay it was $50 with shipping. It's really heavy plastic and good quality. The joints aren't flexible and it's abit smaller than lifesize but I really like it. I have this doll http://www.weewilliewinks.com/store/WsDefault.asp?One=9 and it fits great. The doll is all cloth so I think that helps with fitting it through. I plan to make my own placenta. personally, I think the whole baby, pelvis, placenta set it way overpriced and the baby is a bit weird looking.
