Finlay's back on track

Here’s a short video of Finlay getting back on the track this week. He’s had difficulty playing games since an injury seven years ago restricted the movement in his hands.

He was keen to get back to playing Mortal Kombat and racing games, so Frankie and Joe went to see what they could do.

Although Finlay could use his right thumb to move the left stick, pressing the face and shoulder buttons was tricky. So the team added some external button switches he could press with his left hand, and put the whole setup onto a lap tray.

He was soon racing around the track in Project Cars using the switches for brake and accelerate, and the stick for steering! Nice one Finlay, we’ll be looking forward to helping you play even more games in the future.
