Smart materials and structures are unknown to the medical community; therefore the opportunity exists to apply these new technologies to health care. A background of the emerging emphasis on advanced medical technologies and the information environment in which these technologies are based will provide a perspective that will enable designers of smart structures to envision new applications for products. A broad overview of the changes and new requirements for advanced medical technologies is presented, and a scenario-based illustration of the modern medical battlefield will provide insight for the application of smart structures to health care.
