AbstractSurgical correction of scoliosis typically uses stainless steel or titanium alloy spinal instrumentation to straighten the scoliotic spine by 70% only. Our aim is to develop a method to overcome this by using an implantable superelastic (SE) nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloy rod, which will impose a continuous gradual correction force to the spine after the surgery so as to achieve a superior correction. More than 75 specimens made of a Ti-50.0 at% Ni alloy were treated by different heat treatment routes. The Austenitic transition temperature of the NiTi alloy can be adjusted to be available at 37.5°C by altering the heat treatment parameters: time and temperature of heat treatment. The experimental results showed that the heat treatment temperature should set between 400-500°C and the heat treatment time should be less than 60 minutes for the alloy.
