James E Jervis: Medical devices incorporating sim alloy elements. Raychem Corporation, Ira D Blecker, May 19, 1987: US04665906 (1534 worldwide citation)

Medical devices which are currently proposed to use elements made from shape memory alloys may be improved by the use of stress-induced martensite alloy elments instead. The use of stress-induced martensite decreases the temperature sensitivity of the devices, thereby making them easier to install a ...
