The Trabasack team were pleased to do a spot of networking at the Naidex National Convention again in May and whilst at the event it’s always on our mind to scout out likeminded business and those who have exciting innovative creations in the New Products Showcase. This year we were particularly interested in LEPMIS (Long Eaton Powered Mobility Integration Service) who used the national event to launch their accessible and ingenious ORTHROS gaming controller.
The ORTHROS one handed gaming handset is a completely original creation which allows a user access to all the standard PlayStation controls via one single controller, therefore making the console itself much more accessible. The ORTHROS controller attracted a lot of attention at the convention and in fact came third in one of the many fantastic awards that Naidex offer to their most innovative and up and coming new inventions. Orthos is named after the two headed dog in Greek Mythology if you are wondering!
Their first customer for Orthos was an amputee serviceman who was thrilled with it and within minutes was back to the same level on his playstation game that he had been before his injury!
A Closer Look at LEPMIS and Orthros
LEPMIS have been trading since 2005 and work with individuals to help provide a range of gaming equipment and technology to enhance their gaming experience and access to regular console gaming and other similar devices and technology. LEPMIS gaming products allow gamers with disabilities to access their favourite Sony PlayStation games without issue, using specially designed custom switches, adapted joysticks or further specifically designed products.
Orthros is an example of a product which LEPMIS have been able to market more widely and has proven a huge success when taken to Naidex. With its sturdy design incorporating every one of the PlayStation 3 controller’s buttons on a single one-hand joystick, PlayStation gaming has never been more accessible, as this video demonstrates:
Whilst at Naidex the Trabasack team gave the guys at Lepmis a chance to trial the Trabasack lap tray and bag as a mount for the Orthros with positive results as the pictures show and with the new Media Mount available, we’re sure the LEPMIS range of products would work fantastically in conjunction with trabasack to provide a secure mount for your gaming controller.
