VR for a disabled person


Recommended Posts

Hello. My name is Andrei (or Andrew if it's easier) and I came here due to a recommendetion from a tech support from htc.  I want to tell you a few things about my problem. 

I contacted the tech support for a recommendetion for a vr headset that could be used by a disabled person who is able to move his head only. They suggested me the VIVE Focus 3 with the VIVE Focus 3 Eye Tracker and the VIVE XR Elite with the VIVE Full Face Tracker.

My questions are: 

It is a posibility to use the headsets for gaming in this physical state?

Are there any softwares that could help him to control the games with his eyes?

If not, it is another solution?


The person who I am talking used to be my boss, but he had a stroke and now he's completely paralysed and he can't talk. Now his doughter took charge for the company and she has to take care of everything.

Around the same time (around 3 months earlier) my father was discovered with bone cancer and 1 vertebra was quite damaged, but he was lucky enough react well to the treatment and now he can do most of the normal things. As I said we are very lucky because my father is able to do most of the normal things.

Now looking at both situations, I understand how hard is for her and I want to help her somehow. I used to play a lot of games and I thought to introduce them to gaming if possible, this could be a way that the disabled person could spend his long days. I want to know if a game like farming simulator or eurotruck simulator could be played with this set up. He managed a farming and a transport company. And who knows, maybe you have another games suggestions.

Maybe you have other ideeas how the VR could help him or other use for VR, because lately I woked a lot and didn't had time for checking the new technology.

I want to make this setup as a gift and I need more information about the equipment and software I need to make this usable. 

Thank you for reading my story and I hope we can find a solution.
