Non contacting opposable magnets allow for a non contact surface. This also allows for a return to a spring action in the joint.

The second feature of the design is that by using shape memory materials a segmented in situ device can be made on site so to speak allowing a much smaller incision and locking into place at the right temperature.

If revision is required it is much simpler to remove the parts.
