Because people with MS experience a range of physical limitations in addition to cognitive challenges, MyBrainGames was also developed with technical modifications to ensure that the games are accessible to the MS community.

To account for individuals with limited dexterity, minimal mouse and keyboard movement is required, with most of the game played using only two keyboard keys.

MyBrainGames is the latest deliverable of the Collaborative's nearly three-year partnership, which began with their 2007 survey, "Staying Connected: An Investigative Survey of How Technology Affects People Living with MS." Results from this survey indicated that people living with MS were not only highly reliant upon computers and the internet, but also frequent gamers, with 36% of respondents reporting the use of online games.

In response to the survey results, the Collaborative launched www.MyMSMyWay.com, an online portal that features information and resources on technology, including the Snapshot tool, an interactive quiz that provides customized technology solutions based on each individual's particular needs and challenges. The site is now also home to the Collaborative's latest addition, MyBrainGames.

"With the launch of MyBrainGames, we're pleased to be able to present a unique piece of technology that we hope will have a similar impact."

The Collaborative is currently working with leading healthcare professionals and game developers to secure a research gra
