Beth games on with 14 switches!

Great news from Frankie and Nomi this week. They came back from visiting the amazing Beth having managed to find a way for her to play Assassins Creed on her PlayStation, despite her muscular dystrophy making it hard to move her fingers quickly around a standard controller.

They’d done it with a combination of lighter joysticks and 14 (yes 14!) small switches carefully positioned around her fingers AND feet. It’s one of the most complex setups they’d ever created, but one that gives Beth the chance to carry on doing what she loves best!
