Smart materials, also called intelligent or responsive materials, have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled manner by external stimuli, such as temperature. The change is also reversible. The high tech polymer of the THERMEO® family are among smart materials that are characterized by a unique thermomemory effect. For the fabrication of nightguards and splints, the complete THERMEO® line can be used to the best advantage. The THERMEO® splint stands out because of its highest wearing comfort and is self adjusting by thermomemory effect. On the basis of its outstanding properties, THERMEO® combines the advantages of hard as well as flexible splint materials.
