Session Type: 

Active video games (AVGs), a category of video games that require whole body movements are inaccessible or offer limited play options for people who are unable to stand, have balance problems, have poor motor control, or cannot use their lower body to perform game required movements. RERC RecTech has developed adaptations for commercial controllers. In this workshop we will be presenting these adaptations, provide hands on experience for users with mobility limitations and discuss the research associated with this development project.
