Stainless steel is still the most commonly used material for medical devices because it is full-featured, biocompatible, and inexpensive. Other materials such as titanium, cobalt-chromium alloys have also contributed to technological progress. Nickel-titanium alloy (UNSN01555) is a nickel-titanium shape memory alloy, is also a leader in medical metal materials, and is used more and more widely in many medical applications.
