The use of flexible metal Nitinol in medical devices has benefited both manufacturers and patients. The applications of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) in the manufacturing of implantable medical devices is extensively followed in orthopedics, neurology, cardiovascular and dentistry. SMAs are special class of metals possessing the ability to restore their original shape after severe deformation. The Nickel-Titanium alloy (Nitinol) has been found to be the most useful shape memory alloy in biomedical applications, and increased utilization of this alloy to manufacture various medical devices has changed the algorithm of disease treatment. The metal has a unique characteristic to remember and recover its original shape, after being heated above a critical temperature, and also has super elasticity. Other SMAs that are commercially available in the market include copper-zinc-aluminum, copper-aluminum-nickel and iron-manganese-silicon alloys.
