The implant Y-STRUT®, developed by HYPREVENTION, aims at preserving the autonomy and quality of life of the patients who are at risk of hip fracture. Hip fracture is a major public health problem which frequently causes dependency and associated expenses.
Y-STRUT® is used in two clinical indications. In trauma, for the biomechanical reinforcement of the proximal femur in patients having incurred a low energy trochanteric fracture on the other side, and in oncology, for percutaneous internal reinforcement of impending pathological fractures of the proximal femur.
HYPREVENTION was created in 2010 by Cécile Vienney (CEO) and 3 orthopaedic surgeons. HYPREVENTION is a French company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative implantable medical devices to address major public health issues. HYPREVENTION was supported in its early development by the French public actors such as BPI France and the Regional Council of Aquitaine.
Thanks to the recent fund raising, HYPREVENTION can now further develop its sales team and implement the opportunities it identified in Europe, South America and the Middle East. HYPREVENTION can now not only pursue its scientific agenda through clinical trials focused on patient’s benefit, but also the planned health economy studies necessary to support the hip fracture prevention approach as a goal to avoid health costs.
