buildyourownlarynxWhen Jeremy created the free tilting larynx template, he had no idea it would be downloaded at a rate of 15 a day for more than 10 years!

If you haven’t already seen the paper larynx, it’s one of the only larynx models that has a tilting thyroid and tilting/revolving arytenoids. It is as close to the real movements as you can get with paper and pins.

Jeremy has also created a silent movie to show you how to put it together. The process was filmed in one take, and he now knows how the Blue Peter presenters feel. The model had to be held and worked upside down and backwards to register properly on the film.

Jeremy recommends using scissors, glue and the type of paper fasteners that open out to make the arytenoid and cricothyroid movements as accurate as possible.

When you come to make the paper larynx, you will see that points B and C on the cricoid cartilage are marked as lines rather than points. If you cut along those lines to make small slits at B and C, the cricothyroid joint can pivot AND slide. This makes it much closer to the actual movements of the cartilages.

    Hi everyone. Jeremy Fisher here. Once you’ve entered your name and email address the link to the downloadable larynx appears on the right in the solid green box. Just click on “Build Your Own Larynx Template” in the solid green box to save the download. If there are any problems just send me an email.


    I’ve entered my email address twice, but no actual file has come up to download (even though the notification pops up to say “Please download your file below”) – is the file no longer available?


      Hi Lydia Jane
      Thanks for letting me know. Yes, the file is still available, I’ll send it to you directly. I’ll check behind the scenes too to find out why it isn’t downloading properly.
