Fryer said the new Oracle Spine Model is a perfect way to ease the fear of those patients who may be hesitant about getting their backs cracked. Features include: two-part dynamic intervertebral disc (nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus), simulated synovial fold that emits an audible sound when distracted, life-size and identically detailed L4 and L5, palpable smooth hyaline facet surfaces with one having a roughed surface, fibrillation showing the early degenerative changes of a sharp palpable osteophyte, nuclear herniation under load, and an optional detailed cauda equina.
