02/03/2016 - AbleGamers Launches New Expansion Pack Initiative Program
6:44 pm pst
Video Game Industry Leaders Partner With Leading Charity to Deliver Powerful Assistive Technology Packs to
Allow Those With Disabilities to Walk, Run, Climb and Soar Virtually
ABLEGAMERS LAUNCHES "EXPANSION PACKS" INITIATIVE TO EMPOWER THOSE
WITH DISABILITIES THROUGH VIDEO GAMES
Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
- (February 3, 2016) - AbleGamers Foundation - the leading charity and organization dedicated to improving the lives
of those with disabilities through the power of video games - is thrilled to announce today "Expansion Packs", a
new initiative born out of partnership with some of the video game industry's biggest companies. Expansion Packs are
filled with the best assistive technology and specialized controllers available, along with top notch video games and related
swag. They are then delivered and installed in various locations that serve people with serious disabilities, including group
homes, special needs daycare facilities and long-term living centers.
“For the better part of a decade, AbleGamers
has been giving individuals with disabilities the equipment they need to play video games," said Steve Spohn, Chief Operations
Officer of AbleGamers. "Our Expansion Packs allow us to give that same equipment to a larger group of people, faster
than ever, something impossible without the support of some of the brightest, best and most generous companies in video games,
including Humble Bundle, SteelSeries, Electronic Arts, Jinx and Corsair."
The first Expansion Pack arrived
at the Pediatric Specialty Care long-term living facility in Hopewell, Pennsylvania. Arriving right
before Christmas, the first Expansion Pack provided the many children and young adults in the facility’s care with
new and assistive gaming goods.
"AbleGamer's amazing Expansion Packs allow kids who have very limited mobility
in the physical world experience what it is like to run, jump and play in a virtual world," said Kristen Hussar, DPT
Head Physical Therapist at Pediatric Specialty Care - Hopewell. "It gives them a good reason to wiggle their fingers
and rotate their heads, whereas, before the gaming equipment, they may not have seen the value of the limited movement they
can produce. The adaptive switches allow us to take whatever small movements a child is able to generate and augment them
into something fun and meaningful to them, showing them that much is possible despite severe physical limitations."
