I remember this being reported on a few years ago, but I don't know if it actually took place or not -

Dear Kim,

We recently competed in the BCI race at Cybathlon 2016

http://www.cybathlon.ethz.ch/the-disciplines/bci-race.html
http://www.cybathlon.ethz.ch/

This was not unlike an esport for gamers with disabilities - using brain activity to control the action of avatar as it raced along a virtual track against other competitors. All pilots in the race were quadriplegic. This format may provide some ideas.

Best wishes,
Damien

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for countries that have active eSports for gamers with disabilities.

I'm trying to create an eSport league for gamers with disabilities in New Zealand and I would love to get in contact with other countries who also have similar interests.

Regards

Kim
