Shape-shifting polymers and electronics take implantables in new directions

Researchers from the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Tokyo have succeeded in placing electronics on implantable shape-memory polymers that soften and grip 3D objects such as tissues, nerves, and blood vessels when placed inside the body. Reportedly one of the first demonstrations of transistors that can change shape and maintain their electronic properties after implantation, the technology one day may result in new stimulative therapies.
