Freedom Wing Is A Video Game Adapter That Allows Playing Games With Wheelchair Joystick
Innovation doesn’t cease to amaze us, does it? Continuing similar creativity that this dad came up with for his daughter, the AbleGamers Charity, along with AT Makers, has come up with an adapter called Freedom Wing that connects a person’s wheelchair to XBox so they can use the wheelchair’s joystick to play games! That’s right, no need for an external controller – they just use what they are used to and comfortable with to play video games.
The AbleGamers Charity is already giving away Freedom Wing to those who may need it through grants. Very soon, instructions will also be provided on how to connect Freedom Wing to an XBox console.
In the video below, you can see this person playing Rocket League very comfortably using this arrangement.
I am very interested in trying this for my 17 year old son
Hi Shriya, Please reach out to AbleGamers for more info on how to try this for your son. https://ablegamers.org/
I am interested in purchasing one of these for my younger brother, I have clicked the link above to no avail. Please help me I have stage 4 lung cancer, and am concerned for my brother. Without divulging to much of his personal information as im sure to do, I must say that i’m afraid that he has lost the desire to live since he lost the use of his arms and legs. He is 43 years old, and was an avid gamer, and guitarist. I just want to find something that may give him some sense of normalcy or something that will help him get through the hours. He is somewhat isolated, an isolation that is self imposed, he doesn’t like people seeing him in his present condition. He wont admit this, but i know my brother. I’m sorry for imposing, but i don’t really know what to do, or where to begin. I would like to help him find something so that he can live the rest of his life not lying alone, not only waiting to die, but hoping for it. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
