Ryan's kicking up snow!

Here's some precision positioning! Our team caught up with Ryan a few days ago. He has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and when we visited him at home previously, he tried gaming from his chair. Ryan was hoping we could come up with a setup he could use to play Xbox from his bed, as this would be more comfortable.

He has good movement in his right hand thumb, and with a low force joystick positioned just right, he’s able to move the stick in all directions. With his left hand he can use two ultra-light switches and one microswitch.

He’s a big fan of the Ubisoft RedLynx @TrialsGames series, and here he is kicking up snow in Trials Fusion. He’s now looking forward to taking on Trials Rising!
