19 May '20
The new resident of the Zhigulevskaya Dolina technopark LLC ARMAX carries out activities in the field of prosthetics of the upper extremities - designs and manufactures finger prostheses.

The project of the company “Development of an active finger prosthesis to replenish fine motor skills due to the loss of one or more phalanxes of the finger” in 2019 won the regional competition UMNIK in the Samara Region of the Fund for Assistance to the Development of Small Businesses in the Scientific and Technical Field in the Field of Medicine and received a grant in the amount of 500 thousand rubles.
ARMAKS General Director Artem Schmidt told how his ideas turned into his own production: “At first it was a theory - the development of a finger prosthesis. The idea of ​​creating a company and the foundation of an orthopedic enterprise arose due to a pronounced lack of finger prostheses in Russia. This need is not covered in any way by existing prosthetic enterprises. Therefore, we took the responsibility to fill this niche in order to help people who can not go through socialization after receiving this or that trauma.

Participation in the UMNIK program opened up enormous opportunities for us, ”Artyom admits,“ we met a large number of people with interesting innovative projects. We gained vast experience in developing and preparing a project for the jury and learned how to present our product, defend it and achieve results. ”
In 2020, ARMAX became a resident of the Zhigulevskaya Valley technology park Having received many pleasant bonuses for starting a business:
“Worse than any action is absolute inaction. Better to do something and regret than not to do anything. Therefore, we move, develop, learn from our mistakes, try to modernize our production and not lose heart. I want to tell everyone who wants to develop their project and bring it to the masses - the regional platform of the Fund for the Promotion of Innovations - the Zhiguli Valley technopark will help you in the development of your projects. Try it, try it! If your project is really good, be sure - they will help you develop it here, ”Artyom is sure.
