Joe's enjoying some Forza and FIFA fun!

We were so excited to be able to help Joe recently. A spinal lesion over 35 years ago left him with very limited hand movement, but our therapists Nomi and Frankie worked with him to find the best way to play games. As a result he's now enjoying Forza 7 and FIFA 19 via two head-operated switches, a large joystick and a tray-mounted button switch all running through an Xbox Adaptive Controller, Go Joe!

If you'd like to know more about the tech we use and some related in-game settings, check out our videos on:
