Abstract : The patent describes a stereotaxic jig in the form of a rigid tetrahedral frame having means for holding an object in a determinable position therein. The jig is characterized by vertex pins and edge mid-point pins extending outwardly of the frame and cooperable with supporting apparatus such as pendulum wires and load measuring devices. The jig thereby serves as an object-to-procedure interface in mass parameter determining calculations.
