Our Mission

Shape Memory Medical is dedicated to developing innovative therapeutic solutions for the cardiovascular and neurovascular space.  We are the first medical device company to introduce a FDA-cleared shape memory polymer (SMP) based medical device for the vascular space. 

Our Technology

Shape memory polymers (SMP) are polymer-based smart materials that are capable of responding to external stimuli. 

Shape Memory Medical’s proprietary engineered smart materials have the ability to maintain multiple defined states and automatically transition when stimulated by the patient’s body for optimal therapeutic outcomes. 

Our materials are proven to be highly biocompatible and have been approved for permanent implantation.  We are the first company to be FDA-cleared for an SMP.

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



IMPEDE Embolization Plug is a novel and less traumatic alternative to traditional embolization coils and plugs when treating patients with peripheral vascular diseases.
