Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19755872A1] The invention relates to a method for producing or treating plastic parts in such a way that a shape memory is imposed on said plastic parts. The plastic part can have a shape suitable for an implant. The shape of the plastic part can be changed by applying energy, including the heat energy of an organism, so that it can be used for special functions in an organism.
