Superelastic Medical Devices

Superelastic Medical Devices

 

Superelastic materials that are highly compatible with the human body are increasingly being used in medical devices.

 

Thanks to its extraordinary properties, Nitinol has opened significant markets in a growing list of medical applications, including widely used implantable and one-time use medical devices.

Nitinol’s unusual ability to accommodate large mechanical strain (so called superelasticity), combined with its compatibility with the human body, has made it one of the most commonly used materials in medical devices, especially devices used in minimally-invasive procedures.
