An ingrowing toenail has no definitive treatment. Previously, effective methods were complicated but easy ones had less effect. We show both an easy and an effective way with Cu-Al-Mn-based shape-memory alloys (SMAs). They have a characteristic shape which patients themselves can detach easily without any pain. But they also have enough corrective force. Cu-based SMAs cost much less than Ni-Ti-based alloys. Despite not being appropriate for all cases of ingrowing toenails, it is an easy, effective and less costly alternative.
