WHAT IS UPYA ?
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.
Now that the development is complete, you can shop Upya by clicking on the icon on the left of the screen.
HOW DOES UPYA WORK ?
«The heel strike is soft and comfortable, it’s very pleasant!»
«Upya is very stable, it’s reassuring and I feel more confident.»
«This forefoot flexion is incredible and gives new sensations!»
«The toe-off is easy, thanks to the energy accumulated by the fiberglass blade.»
«Upya manages slopes and tilts well, so I don’t have to worry about these areas anymore.»
UPYA MAKES YOUR LIFE EASIER
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 28cm and from 60 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 28 cm.
4 DYNAMISM: Fiberglass blade and square wire spring.
5 EXCHANGEABLE : Exchangeable and interchangeable standardized parts.
Key points to remember
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 28 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.
UPYA SAFEGUARDS YOU
Upya is certified CE ISO 10 328, what does that mean? Well, it complies with the strictest regulations especially in terms of resistance to fatigue or breakage. The tests performed on Upya guarantee a minimum of 3 years of use.
You can imagine that an innovation like this has to be protected! So after a first registration in France, EXONEO has extended the intellectual protection of the Upya prosthetic foot all over the world. So don’t worry, there is only one Upya, the original!
No hassle, there is a warranty! Upya is guaranteed for 2 years for the mechanical parts and 6 months for the aesthetic shell. Moreover, all Upya parts are treated against corrosion, which allows Hamdi, our first patient, to go regularly to the sea with it since 2019.
