Meet Tony, an avid lifelong gamer born without any forearms. He’s now competing and winning against his son again in his favourite games like Forza, thanks to a foot-enhanced custom gaming setup devised by our specialist assessment team.

Tony has been gaming all his life, but his disability makes it impossible for him to use the bumpers and triggers effectively on standard modern controllers. It’s severely restricted the enjoyment, range and competitiveness of his gaming, but a pre-COVID visit to SpecialEffect’s gaming room and the continuing help of our specialist assessment team, along with the loan of the custom gaming setup, has reopened effective access to all genres of gaming for him.

Many thanks to Xbox, Turn 10 Studios, Playground Games, Al Compton and our Specialist Occupational Therapists Nomi and Cam for making this video possible.
