Abstract

A custom-made, thermoplastic cap was designed to temporarily protect the head of a nonhuman primate after the attachment of a prosthetic device. Thermoplastic proved to be an appropriate material because it was durable, easy to mold, non-irritable, and lightweight. The temporary cap adequately guarded against self-trauma and injury.
