Design Considerations for Nitinol in Medical Devices

Nitinol, a nickel-titanium alloy exhibits two unique properties: superelasticity and shape memory. Shape memory Nitinol wire can be used to develop implants that may be delivered into the body in a compact shape and activated into their functional form once they have been deployed. Superelasticity occurs at temperatures just above the transformation temperature and allows the material to recover up to 8% strain with a permanent set of 0.5% or less.

Polymer and Processing Challenges for the Next Endovascular Revolution

Recent clinical data suggests Bioabsorbable Vascular Scaffolds (BRS) will be the next revolution in endovascular therapy. BRS have been shown to afford restored vasomotion, late luminal enlargement, and reduced angina. While the day where BRS becomes the standard of care is fast approaching, transitioning from metals to bioabsorbable polymers has not been without major challenges.

Increasing Tier 4 Efficiencies via Systems Integration

In conjuction with SAE With a victory over Tier 4 emissions regulations achieved across the off-highway industry, engines manufacturers, OEMs, and other system suppliers now must find other ways to differentiate themselves and gain competitive advantages over rivals. The main way to do that is to collaborate on increasing system efficiencies along the entire lifecycle of a vehicle and its components via optimum systems integration.
