Inside Your Amazing Feet

Last week my wife and I were in Las Vegas and saw the Bodies… The Expedition at Bally’s.

You are probably asking what this has to do with feet – my usual topic. Check out the two photos. As an athlete, you’d appreciate being able to see the intricate detail of the bodies – and our feet. Seeing how everything fits and works together is impressive. Seeing preserved bodies in poses with muscles, skeleton, circulatory systems showing action is great. You come away with a new respect for your body and what it’s capable of.

BODIES - FootFor those who have not heard of these amazing exhibitions, here’s an explanation from the Bodies website.

BODIES…The Exhibition offers an intimate and informative view into the human body. Using an innovative preservation process, the Exhibition allows visitors to see the human body’s inner beauty in educational and awe-inspiring ways. Our Exhibitions have over 200 actual human bodies and specimens meticulously dissected and respectfully displayed, offering an unprecedented and wholly unique view into the amazing body.

Specimens in the Exhibition are prepared through a revolutionary process called polymer preservation, in which human tissue is permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber. This process creates a specimen that will not decay, offering thousands of unique teaching possibilities for educators at all levels. Preparation time varies: a small organ may take only a week, while a full-body specimen may take up to a year to prepare. After quality preservation, specimens can last for decades.

BODIES - FootLook deep inside the systems of the human body: Skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, endocrine, and circulatory.

We took a lot of pictures and spend a long time seeing the 20 bodies and over 200 specimens. Most bodies are in motion. Some show one of the systems mentioned above. Internal organs are displayed in fantastic detail. We even took a selfie with one of the bodies.

If you have the opportunity, go to one of the exhibits as they travel around the country. They make it to Europe too. The best way to find an exhibition is through a Google search. Here’s one of the U.S. links for the Bodies… The Expedition.
