I have just been fitted with the Upya foot and it is making noise.
If the noises persist, please contact your P&O.
Is there a particular Upya foot setting that should be adopted to achieve the best possible gait?
1. 1. Make sure that the Upya foot is suitable for your patient’s weight (P3, P4 or P5):
2. You can adjust the pyramid setting a few degrees to the front to smoothen the stride.
3. You may also place a 2 to 5 mm thick heel pad in the patient’s shoe.
Is there a typical patient profile (age, activity level, weight, etc.) for using Upya?
Upya is available in 3 weight ranges from 50 to 110kg in sizes from 25 cm (size 38-39) to 28 cm (size 42-43).
Please refer to the “Guide to weights and activities” table on our online shop to find the most suitable configuration for your patient:
Do you have a method or tool in place so that I can make a leg design for my patient that can fit the ankle of the Upya foot?
You can also request the file that will allow you to 3D print it.
This part makes it easier to make an cosmetic leg for the Upya foot.
Is the cosmetic cover fragile?
The cosmetic cover is guaranteed for 6 months.
If the foot is used as recommended and the user does not walk barefoot, the cosmetic cover will not be damaged.
However, be sure to round off the cut of Upya’s forefoot for sizes 25 cm and 26 cm so as not to damage the inside of the cover:
I don't understand, the Upya foot I just assembled for my patient is size 27 but the cosmetic cover seems smaller, did you get my order wrong?
To facilitate the fitting of larger sizes, you can heat the envelope lightly, for example with a hair dryer, before putting it on the foot.
Isn't it too complicated to recut the toe to fit a 25 cm or 26 cm foot?
Is it possible to use a different cosmetic cover from the one provided with the Upya foot
In addition, the Upya cover allows the mechanics of the foot to be preloaded in order to guarantee its performance and comfort.
Can the Upya foot work with electronic knees?
Is the Upya foot heavy?
