Latest Shape memory alloy Stories
Scientists have engineered a soft autonomous robot that crawls across surfaces similar to how an earthworm moves.
University of Constance physicists Daniel Mutter and Peter Nielaba have visualized changes in shape memory materials down to the nanometric scale.
ATLANTA, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedShape Solutions, Inc., the industry leader in innovative shape memory orthopedic devices, today announced that it has been granted a patent from the United States Copyright and Patent Office for its innovative shape memory alloy based technology.
A team has succeeded in applying the concept of functionally graded materials (FGMs) to shape memory polymers (SMPs).
SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- BioMedical Enterprises, Inc.
"Smart" alloy stretches, contracts by almost 10 percent.
Researchers from Northwestern University and Boise State University have figured out how to produce a less expensive shape-shifting "memory" foam, which could lead to more widespread applications of the material, such as in surgical positioning tools and valve mechanisms.
ATLANTA, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- MedShape Solutions, Inc. announced today the first FDA cleared shape memory PEEK (polyaryletheretherketone) device for orthopedics using proprietary shape memory PEEK Altera(TM) material.
Shape memory alloys can â€œrememberâ€ a condition. If they are deformed, a temperature change can be enough to bring them back to their original shape. A simulation calculates the characteristics of these materials.
