We’re so happy to able to bring this kind of joy back to the face of Mick, who suffered a spinal injury that left him unable to move his hands and fingers well enough to use a games controller. Thanks to a consultation with our specialist assessment team who carefully considered his gaming wishes and abilities, then provided a loan setup for him to try out, he’s back playing FIFA in standard mode again as his beloved Everton – using four small accessibility button switches, a Microsoft XAC and a large joystick. Just wonderful!
