This obesity education model consists of two cross-sections of the hip area, one representing a "pear shaped" body and the other an "apple shaped" body.
The pear shape cross section is referred to as: "Pear body fat distribution pattern" or "lower body fat", mainly composed of subcutaneous fat. The apple shape cross section is referred to as: "Apple body fat distribution pattern" or "intra-abdominal fat". Intra-abdominal fat can be composed of visceral and subcutaneous fat.
In addition the anatomy model illustrates effects of obesity on the body, such as compression from visceral fat on the colon, common iliac artery and veins, ureter, small intestine, femoral nerve, etc.
The obesity model comes with an education card including a comparison of apple, pear, and a normal shape hip areas, and a removeable stand included.
