More goals for Finlay!

Last week our OTs Nomi and Mhairi went to Scotland to visit some gamers who’d asked for our help - including the amazing Finlay, who we’ve previously helped to play FIFA in its two-button mode.

Finlay absolutely loves his FIFA and wanted to be able to access the trigger buttons to get even more of an edge over his competitors. We swapped his setup over to the Xbox Adaptive controller and he took to it right away. With a head switch as his right trigger, Finlay can now sprint around racking up even more goals, and with another button switch on his lap tray he can access the left trigger. And he loved the fact he could change the buttons whenever he wanted to play something different.

Nomi and Mhairi also had a chance to chat to some colleagues at the Edinburgh Community Stroke Service (ECSS) about what we do and share some knowledge.
