Issue: Researcher: "We have an over active animal that keeps wearing out the positioner what can be done to solve this."

This will help to reduce the stress on the screws and prevent the post from weakening.

Question: we bought several primate chairs for you  and since we move soon in a new facility with a chair washer we would like to know, out of which material exactly the chairs are to choose the right cleaning solution.
