Abstract: In recent years, research into the applications of Shape Memory Materials (SMMs) in biomedical settings have been growing in popularity. Shape Memory Materials belong to a group of materials that possess a unique phenomenon called the Shape Memory Effect (SME). Shape Memory Materials can be deformed indefinitely and ‘memorise’ this temporary shape. It can then return to its original form after the right stimulus is applied. Shape Memory Materials such as hydrogels and shape memory polymers are popular in various fields because of its unique attributes such as malleability, flexibility, and biocompatibility with living tissue and organism. Hydrogels have been used in volumetric 3D printing in past research papers whereas shape memory polymers have been used in developments of band-aids and comfort fitting. The aim of this report is to explore other possible materials for biomedical usage.
