Shape Memory Alloy

Dear Sir or Madam,

With the concept of "getting back into shape", people associate the effort to regain a lost physical condition – for example to look again like 20 in the middle of 40. Unfortunately, this is usually not easy because we cannot jump back into our old form. Quite different than shape memory alloys. Once a certain form has been impressed, they always reach this state. Enviable, right? If you would like to know more about this particular material, please click on our Special.

Have a nice day!

The thing with the memory: shape memory alloy

Special

Shape memory alloy – the name says it all: It does not matter how much they are bent and deformed, they can always "remember" their original form when temperature is increased. This characteristic brings other benefits with it, like for example elasticity and resilience. Whether for stents, surgical devices or micro valves, medical technology has also recognized the advantages of nickel-titanium, nickel-titanium-copper and other shape memory alloys.

Future surgery may use an automated, robotic drill

A computer-driven automated drill, similar to those used to machine auto parts, could play a pivotal role in future surgical procedures. The new machine can make one type of complex cranial surgery 50 times faster than standard procedures, decreasing from two hours to two and a half minutes.

Novel method to detect toxic effects of chemicals

Traditional toxicological investigations performed on animals (in vivo) are expensive, time-consuming and may cause animal suffering. But research from Umeå University demonstrates that a neuronal cell model, derived from mouse, can be used to evaluate the neurotoxic effect of chemicals.
