Movement and Rotation in Virtual Reality for Disabled People
How disabled people can interact in Virtual Reality when they can't press a button?
Moving in VR for people with limited mobility can be embarrassing.
Especially when a disabled person has problems with balance and using goggles on his head must remain in sitting position.
People in wheelchairs may have problems moving in VR either, because they have controllers in their hands, significantly hindering or preventing moving a wheelchair.
To move – When you want to move in VR, hold the activation button on the handheld controller assigned to movement and drag it in the direction you want to move. Release the button when movement is complete.
This VR adaptation is used by people who have muscular dystrophy, SMA, tetraplegia, balance disorders and generally all people who use wheelchairs or stay in their beds.
To rotate – When you want to rotate in VR, hold the activation button on the handheld controller assigned to rotation and drag it in the direction you want to rotate. Release the button when done rotating.
This VR adaptation is often used by players staying in their wheelchairs, beds or people who need to remain sitting.
Pressing original button – Please note: Pressing assigned button will enable rotation and movement. Double pressing the assigned button will perform the button’s intented function
