Thread: Quad friendly Wii games?

  1. #11
    Have you tried Wii Play? It has a collection of games like ping pong and air hockey that I don't think requires you to push any buttons to play.

    Just bump it with your chin or use your other hand. This way you can still practice swing.

    I'm not trying to bust balls but wouldn't it be better to add to an existing thread discussing this topic, rather than starting another thread? That way we could keep bumping the original?

    Is there already an existing thread that discusses games for the wii that quads can use? If so I can't find it So starting this thread I think was a great idea I know it's helped me. Other threads have different titles so the subject of games for quads gets lost in the mix so once again thanks for everyone's ideas maybe this will be a good form of exercise for me

    I didn't know you could do the hula hooping from SITTING on the balance board! How does that work then?

    This company sells a range of adaptive switches.

    http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/index.htm

    I have seen one for wii that is fitted to one forearm. There is also a DIY section (towards bottom of page) which tells you how to do stuff if you can get someone else to make adaptions for you.

    I use an hair scrunchie wrapped around wii remote to keep it in my hand while I'm flinging arms around trying to play tennis.. lol and just use thumb of other hand to hit top buttons.

    You could use something like or sweat band or something if you don't possess an hair scrunchie? Make sure hand is in a position where you can move the B button with tiniest movement before you fasten it to your hand. Or by placing free hand under controller can push up against it to activate B button.

    What about Mario Tennis if you like Tennis? or could you try use a steering wheel by propping it up on lap (on a wedge or something) and using forearms/elbows to move it left or right. Haven't tried this one so you might like to borrow a friends first see if it is possible and of course depends how much movement you have in arms.

    Maybe possible for someone to mount the steering wheel onto something for you so could rest arms on it and turn left/right via tiny movements in forearms? All the buttons are then in centre so anything used as a pointer/mouthstick should enable you to hit any buttons needed.

    That's an awesome website. Thank you very much for that. Now once I get off bed rest, using a hair scrunchy (LOL) I can probably set it up myself. Thank you very much.the

    Here's another, if you have hemiplegia or have use of one hand better than the other, this guy has found some wii games that can be played one handed needing only the wii remote. (which you could strap to one hand with scrunchie/sweatband)
