Computer games whizz kid Brendon lost the ability to play when his muscular dystrophy progressed and he didn’t have the finger strength to use a standard computer keyboard. Remap volunteer Martin Harman from Southampton developed a special keypad and mouse mat to get him back online.
When it was done Brendon was overjoyed, as he would once again be able to compete on equal terms with others. In the world of online gaming, nobody knows if you have an impairment like muscular dystrophy which has such an impact in daily life offline. Brendon commented: “Now I can get back to thrashing those able-bodied kids!”
