Bringing Callum's bumpers back into play

We recently helped Callum, a massive gaming fan, to max out his moves. His hands are closed into fists because of his neurological condition, so the triggers and bumpers on a standard controller are difficult to reach.

By laying the controller flat and fixing it to a Velcro tray, he found he could control the sticks and face buttons more effectively using his arm and wrist movements. Then we swapped in an XAC and four small switches mapped to the bumpers and triggers, and he was getting up to speed with Call of Duty and PUBG in no time!

Great to be able to help, Callum!
