Hand/foot combo lets David play co-op Skyrim

Following a car accident when he was younger, David’s been struggling to play games with one hand and almost gave up after buying specialist equipment which didn’t work for him.

Although he could use a joystick with his left hand, he couldn’t reach the triggers to play racing games. So a couple of months ago we set up two footswitch buttons via an Xbox Adaptive Controller and an Xbox to act as racing game foot pedals, along with an intuitive set up. He was soon back enjoying some track action.

His step-daughter loves Skyrim, so our team went back again a few weeks later, with the aim of helping him access the game so they could play together. And we're really pleased to say that with the addition of another button to act as ‘walk forward’, and a special one-handed joystick that suited his hand to act as the camera option, he was soon making his way past his first dragon attack!
