Implantats: Plastics with Programmed Memory


Plastics with shape-memory can "remember" their original shape and resume it again on exposure to heat or UV radiation. Multifunctional materials with an unexpected combination of functionalities, such as biofunctionality, controlled active ingredient release, degradability and shape-memory have a special importance for medical technology, e.g. in minimally invasive surgery.
