1. Pull the first rope by
aid of the needle through the lower third of the foam ball (head) in
diagonal direction. Do the same with the second rope, staggered by
the ends of the ropes to the same length and make a double knot
in a distance of 2-3 cm on either side of the ball. These
knots serve as upper fixation points for the wooden vertebrae.
3. Thread the 5 wooden
vertebrae one after the other on the ropes, the notched wooden vertebra
comes at the end.
a double knot on either end of the four ropes. These knots serve
as lower fixation point of the wooden vertebra at the end of the
model. Good to know: as the spinal column is moved via the muscles,
the ropes are arranged around it.
5. Pull the foam parts which serve as intervertebral
discs between the wooden vertebrae and align them. Good to
know: the function of the discs in our body is similar to a sponge; they
fill with body liquid while we are sleeping.
Wirbelinchen is now ready to use. If you want to, you can give it
a nice face and woollen hair.
