From GB18: Vivek’s gaming again!

Here’s another fantastic example of how your GameBlasting will help! This happened just before Christmas…

Vivek found pressing the back buttons on his PS4 controller difficult because of the lack of strength in his fingers and hands, but he’s now gaming again thanks to a custom setup worked out by our therapists Nomi and Frankie!

Vivek’s Muscular Dystrophy was limiting his gaming, so the first step was to help him hold his controller more comfortably by supporting its weight on a velcro-based wedge and tray. The team then substituted in some lightweight joysticks, and remapped the L1, R1, L2 and R2 controls to tiny lightweight switches placed around his tray.

“I can’t thank you enough,” he later tweeted, “You’ve made gaming fun again!”

Thanks for signing up to GameBlast. It means a lot to us, and it means even more to people like Vivek.
