"Barrier-free Controller for Home Videogames by Namco
This redesigned game pad is compatible with the Sony PlayStation 2. It has
oversized buttons and a joystick on it, but also has switch ports for the
addition of external switches."
I found this info from www.connsensebulletin.com/gap2005.html. However,
there's nothing on the Hustle-club web-site about this (although if I could
read Japanese this might help). They told me that no hardware was exhibited
for this, but there were pamphlets and two people from Namco that could
speak a little English.
Some more interesting Japanese sites around assistive technology:

controller in 2002)
(English translation of bespoke accessible USB controllers
http://www.p-supply.co.jp/comaid/index.html (stock switches and sensors)
If only we could bridge the language barrier....
All the best,
