Implants with memory

Dear Sir or Madam,

Implants that can remember their original shape – this is possible thanks to so-called shape memory materials. Implants such as stents usually lose their shape after a certain period of time and must be replaced. Implants become more durable with a shape memory alloy, because they take on their original shape with the help of body heat, even after deformation. See more in our video.

I wish you a good start to the week!
