The Flex Controller was created to bring the joy of gaming to more people. While developing the Flex Controller we worked with gamers who affected by Muscular Dystrophy, SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), Cerebral Palsy, and other physical challenges as well as medical professionals to create a truly inclusive product with accessibility in mind. This product was designed and developed under the supervision of Technotool Co., Ltd., who specialize in developing products specifically for the physically challenged.
The Flex Controller is designed and sold specifically for those who can’t use a standard controller. Please do not use this product for anything other than it’s intended purposes as an accessibility controller. This will allow more people who need this product to access it.
