Over the past 2000 years, many devices have been developed and used in the mitigation and diagnosis of diseases. The materials used in these devices have ranged from stone, wood, metal, ceramics, and most recently plastics. Medical devices have also evolved in sophistication and complexity over time. With the formalization of the scientific method in the seventeenth century such devices became more prevalent [1]. Many medical devices were manufactured by doctors or small companies and sold directly to the public with no

The history of plastics and medical devices traces a complex course of slowly evolving ideas punctuated by moments of intellectual revolution. When viewed from the vantage of retrospect, it becomes apparent that milestones in the progress of biomaterial science represent culminations of gradual shifts in theory and iterative experimentation. This has been as true for methodological developments in polymer chemistry as it has for technological breakthroughs in medical equipment design. The two disciplines, though now inextricable from one another, initially

Silicone materials have been widely used in medicine for over 60 years. Available in a variety of material types, they have unique chemical and physical properties that manifest in excellent biocompatibility and biodurability for many applications. Silicone elastomers have remarkably low glass-transition temperatures and maintain their flexibility over a wide temperature range, enabling them to withstand conditions from cold storage to steam autoclaving. They have high permeability to gases and many drugs, advantageous respectively in wound care or in transdermal drug
