What does Upya mean? Upya is a word in Swahili which means new beginning, and you will understand why we made this choice.
The Upya project was born from an observation : there is a lack of orthopedic devices adapted to the needs of patients in search of a comfortable, dynamic and most importantly, an economically accessible prosthetic foot. We designed THIS prosthetic foot: Upya REPRODUCES THE NATURAL MOVEMENT OF THE HUMAN FOOT and has many other qualities:
– Dynamic: thanks to its energy restitution blade made of fiberglass.
– Economical: delivered in a kit to be assembled for a reduced cost and spare parts available separately.
– Fully biomechanical: it replicates the best possible design – the human skeleton!
– Providing unprecedented comfort: thanks to its specific geometry and the materials used.
– With an extended durability thanks to its replaceable parts.
Easy and useful!
Upya is delivered as a kit to be assembled by yourself for an excellent modularity, a longer life span of the foot, thanks to the possibility to exchange parts and a simplified stock.
Upya is also the same foot from 25 to 29cm and from 50 to 110 kg, it is delivered with a stretchable foot shell which goes on the 4 sizes.
1 UNIVERSAL : Pyramid included to adapt Upya easily.
2 ROBUST: Ultra-resistant materials in reinforced polyamides.
3 EXTENSIBLE : Light and resistant foot shell, stretchable from 25 to 29 cm.
4 DYNAMISM: Fiberglass blade and square wire spring.
5 EXCHANGEABLE : Exchangeable and interchangeable standardized parts.
Upya parts are replaceable, so any part can be changed. For example, let’s say I feel that my heel is worn out after a few years of use. With Upya I have the possibility to change this heel instead of buying a new foot. It’s economical and ecological, you leave with a foot that performs as well as a new one.
Bye bye obsolescence!
Thanks to our biomechanical approach, we have been able to standardize the parts. In practical terms :
Upya is an adaptable foot from 25 to 29 cm (sizes 38/39 to 43/44). In other words, with the same Upya foot, you can fit a patient whose foot size is 25 cm, or 26 cm, or …, you get the idea.
Left or right of course!
Upya’s design offers a significant advantage for orthopaedic professionals: the ability to manage their stock more easily and at a lower cost. In fact, each foot can be disassembled and all you need are spare parts to assemble a new foot, so you will never be caught off guard, ensuring the utmost satisfaction for your patients.
