  1. Are there certain game controllers for people with limiting dexterity with their hands? Would gesture based systems offer a method since people with CP need to exercise certain movement and a system like kinect could model their movement.

  2. Love love this paper!! One of the most complete end-end research study I’ve seen in a while.

  3. Why do researchers assume that people with disabilities only want therapy games? I’m glad the focus of his paper was entertainment and exercise.
