End user has severe Cerebral Palsy and finds fine motor control such as holding and pulling a trigger on a Scalextric controller impossible. User was effectively excluded from playing with this toy.
A device was designed and manufactured which fits onto the controller and convert the method of operation from a trigger to a large lever, which is something that the End User is capable of doing. A simple push button system was considered originally, however a button would drive the car at a fixed speed, the lever mechanism retains the ability to control the speed of the car.
Device was mounted to the users tray using a Manfrotto clamp
A more cost effective, and attractive, 3D printed version of this adaptor is currently in development and a link to the files on Thingiverse will be published here in due course
The end user was able to access and enjoy playing the car racing game with his family
