Story

Enjoying the ability to play many different games and interact with technology with a fully able body is great but what Special Effect do is awesome. Please consider helping support their work by sponsoring me. Below is links to their website and a video about they work they did with Sam who was impacted by a cycling accident.

SpecialEffect enable severely disabled people to use technology in any way possible – using whichever part(s) of their body that work best - by adapting tech to their individual needs. It’s so important they can join in with family/friends, to be included and not left out. This can hugely benefit mental wellbeing, self-esteem and quality of life – and much needed FUN!
We specialise in Eye Control Technology. Imagine: You wake up after an accident. You can’t move anything except your eyes. And you can’t speak. Through eye-movement alone, we help people operate a computer so they can communicate and regain a little independence - giving them a voice when they don’t have one of their own.
Tom, a young man we helped wrote simply: ‘Thank you for giving me my life back.’ Sadly Tom died a while ago, but he was kept happily gaming right up to the very night before he passed away. His family are now good friends of SpecialEffect.
