Executive Summary

Imagine an implanted device that can be inserted through a small opening in the body but expands to a much larger size once inside. Morever, it's a permanent device that can adjust to changing conditions within the body following implantation. In other words, an active implant as opposed to a static implant. Such is the biocompatible, shape-memory polymer technology being developed by MedShape Solutions. The company is initially focused on sports medicine, with an emphasis in rotator cuff and shoulder repair and anterior cruciate ligament repair.
