GPI Anatomicals is the largest manufacturer of anatomical models for pharmaceutical companies with over three million models distributed in medical offices throughout the world. Founded by Scott Galloway in 1980, GPI Anatomicals specializes in plastic product design and uses every major plastic manufacturing process to produce proprietary designs of realistic, anatomically accurate models used primarily for patient education.
With its initial anatomical models, GPI specialized in custom designs. In 1996 the company expanded its product line to include a wide variety of stock anatomical models, now with 99 different models. The stock models cover a wide range of specialties for both humans and veterinary models. Nearly every part of the human anatomy is represented, from skin, bones and arteries to eyes, brain, kidneys, prostate, breast, lung and teeth. A newer line for veterinarians includes canine hip, spine, elbow, shoulder, jaw, heart and ear. The models are invaluable in facilitating patient education and can be customized.
