Harout Markarian

My name is Harout Markarian and I am the Founder of MARKBOTIX. I BELIEVE AN ACCESSIBLE WORLD is an inclusive world. My passion for engineering and robotics may have started in the aerospace and defense industry, but after watching my family experience the enormous challenges with disabilities, I found my purpose in creating accessible robotics.

My story of experiencing the challenges first hand, are one of many. Markbotix was founded to make life accessible for all. If you’re passionate about transforming lives on a massive scale and creating a more accessible world, then let’s talk!

Mobility & Inclusion (book)

Life-changing events can be troubling. Adapting to a new lifestyle post-injury can be challenging, both physically and mentally. Instead of focusing on the challenges and the limitations, you can focus on the opportunities that you never thought were possible before.

If you recently experienced a life-changing injury, or you're a person advocating for accessibility and inclusion, this book is for you.

Become independent.
Learn about the technological innovations that empower people with disabilities.
Promote accessibility through Universal Design and lower costs.
Be yourself!

Let's make accessibility and mobility the gold standard through technological innovation.

What's stopping you from living in an inclusive environment?

Mobility & Inclusion (podcast)

Mobility and Inclusion Podcast is the premier YouTube channel for everything robotics and disability related. The stories of amazing people from all walks of life will inspire you to be more and do more.

You will receive amazing stories of overcoming and taking control of your circumstances from people with massive life experience.

You will also learn about robotics and how it can help people live better and have a better quality of life.


MARKBOTIX was established in 2019 by Harout Markarian after experiencing a fall with his grandmother and realizing there had to be someway to help.

MARKBOTIX proudly partners with the community of people with disabilities to find solutions together, rather than “fixing” their “problems” from an outside perspective.
