Abstract: With increasing knowledge of the materials science of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) and improvements in their properties and processing, they have started to become candidate materials for biomedical devices. A dichotomy in the types of medical applications has also emerged, in which some families of BMGs are being developed for permanent devices whilst another family – of Mg-based alloys – is showing promise in bioabsorbable implants. The current status of these metallurgical and technological developments is summarized.
