oqni is currently working on two distinct prosthetics: biomechanical leg and bionic leg. On both projects, we are excited and honored to work with several distinguished partners across our multiple prosthetics projects, partnering with local and international scientists.
Firstly, we are partnering with TUMO Labs, a technology, applied science, and engineering education hub (funded by the European Union) based in Yerevan to drive forward our biomechanical leg prosthetics project. Sargis Zeytunyan is the current project co-lead for the TUMO Labs project, and the team is under way in the research and development stages of the project.
oqni’s biomechanical prosthetics project sought applicants from TUMO Labs (which is funded by the European Union), and invited all applicants from TUMO Labs to an introductory meeting and technical interview.

oqni also visited and met with several prosthetics clinics in Yerevan, including Interorto, to understand more about the development and usage of prosthetics in Armenia.

For our bionic leg project, we are in active talks internationally with scientists and researchers from the University of Michigan to conduct joint R&D to further develop the OpenSource bionic leg project.
oqni is also partnering with Motorica, an upper limbs prosthetics company, during the R&D stages. Motorica fitted five prosthetics to amputees in Armenia free of charge. oqni and Motorica are jointly advancing AI-driven signal analysis software for prosthetics.
