A subhuman primate restraint apparatus having a body support plate and adjustable seat and leg supports mounted on a frame which in turn is mounted on a pair of attachment plate members. The attachment plate members are for securing the restraint apparatus to a platform which may be secured to a centrifuge. The arms and legs of the animal are secured by U-shaped restraint members which are secured to standard over center toggle clamps. A lap strap and shoulder blocks prevent removal of the arms and legs from the U-shaped restraint members. Two body straps secure the animal to the body support plate. A slidable neck restraint holds the head and neck in place. An energy absorbing pad is placed over the body support plate. Author
