The walk-in breast models

The walk-in breast models show the female breast. They illustrate the anatomical structure of the breast as well as various benign and malignant changes. Integrated touchpads simulate sustained different results in the context of self-examination.

Why a walk-in breast model?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but not the most dangerous cancer. Identified promptly and treated are very good healing options. Around 58,000 times a year provide doctors the diagnosis of "breast cancer" in a woman - men she meets very rarely, about 400 times a year.

Early detection through education and the imparting of information , which is also our intention.

The walk-in breast model is a contemporary medium for a often to illuminate taboo subject adequately. Visual and haptic perception facilitate the handling of interested and affected . Anatomical structure, function and pathological changes of the breast to be documented professionally , and of course with the help of this walk- organ model to the general public . Whether to the open door of a medical facility or the patient day , for a seminar or forum , the walk- chest model is correctly placed here as well as at a conference or in a product presentation.

The female breast

The breast is as unique as the woman to whom he belongs. The internal structure of the breast is the same for every woman in principle. The breast consists essentially of fat, and glandular tissue. The glands (lobules) form after the birth of a baby milk that flows through the milk ducts (ductules) to the nipple. In the chest, there are also blood vessels, nerves and lymphatic vessels. About the lymphatics excess liquid flows out of the breast.

What is Breast Cancer?

Changes in the genome of the cells can cause cells divide an organ or tissue of control. This uncontrolled mutation followed by the development of malignant tumors, also called breast cancer.

What is a tumor?

When tumor is referred to as a result of cell proliferation resulting from cell formation. Tumors can be benign (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Such malignant tumors are also referred to as "cancer." Malignant cells proliferate in the ducts and in the lobules. There are different types of breast cancer.
