Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) are a unique class of smart materials that recover their deformed shapes, caused by a loading condition, through temperature changes . SMAs are employed in a variety of areas including aerospace, automotive, and biomedical fields. Their Pseudoelastic characteristics, shape memory effects, and biocompatibility make them particularly suitable for medical applications.
