The Transparent Anatomical Manikin (TAM) is a three-dimensional, transparent model of a human being, created for medical instructional purposes. TAM was created by designer Richard Rush in 1968. It consisted of a see-through reproduction of a femalehumanbody, with various organs being wired so specific body systems would light up on command, on cue with a pre-recorded educational presentation.
Rush eventually produced 42 TAMs, many of which are still displayed in US health education museums. A cheaper model, the Mobile TAM, was created by Rush in the 1980s.
