Giving Harrison a gaming hand

So great to see Harrison over the moon and back enjoying the games he loves! A stroke left the bubbly six-year-old from Northumberland with a weakness in his right arm and hand, so supporting and using a controller at the same time was tiring and uncomfortable. Our team worked out that using a heavy-duty mounting arm to hold his controller at just the right height would make all the difference, and now he’s loving his Minecraft and Plants vs Zombies again!

“Thank you so, so much!!!” said his mum, “One happy boy who can now also include his right hand in gaming!!”

No problem Harrison, hope the smiles keep coming!
