Programmable Materials – Shape Change at the Push of a Button

Programmable materials are true shape-shifters. At the push of a button, they change their properties in a controlled and reversible manner and adapt independently to new conditions. Areas of application include comfortable seating or mattresses that prevent bedsores. In this case, the carpet pad deforms in such a way that the contact surface is large and the pressure on the body parts is reduced as a result. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence »Programmable Materials« CPM are developing such programmable materials and bringing them to market together with industrial partners. One of the aims is to reduce the use of resources.
