Our Technology

SMPs are polymer-based smart materials capable of responding to external stimuli.  

Shape Memory Medical’s proprietary smart materials are engineered to maintain multiple defined shapes and automatically transition from one to another when stimulated by a patient’s body.

We are the first company to bring an FDA-cleared SMP-based product to market.

Shape Memory Medical continues to develop and innovate new therapeutic solutions using SMP technology.
