These jackets are specially designed for resilience, consisting of a hard and durable plastic pocket that resists interference or manipulation by monkeys during drug administration by continuous intravenous infusion.

This durability offers a permanent fix for what has been a consistent issue in study scenarios, especially those employing group-housing conditions. For many years, various works have demonstrated the feasibility of ambulatory infusion in group-housed non-human primates.

The selection of the right equipment is a crucial step in preventing resource damage and being able to achieve outcomes with success.
