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.
