At the heart of our work is our mission to maximise fun and quality of life by helping people control video games to the best of their abilities, but that’s just the start.

We put fun and inclusion back into the lives of physically disabled people by helping them to play video games

By using technology ranging from modified controllers to eye-tracking sensors, we’re finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities.

But we’re not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, we’re bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on quality of life, confidence and rehabilitation.
