This November, IMG had the chance to attend two conferences. The first was the UT Southwestern Adaptive Sports Expo, it was the second annual event. We were excited that we got to show off our award-winning wheelchair VR basketball game. It was also great to see all the adaptive sports that are involved in this event. It was truly eye-opening to see all the wonderful sports being played at that level. We also got a firsthand look at the attendees playing our game. Overall it was a huge success. It made us really want to strive to make a version two on the game.
The Adaptive Sports EXPO is brought to you by the UT Southwestern Adaptive Sports Coalition, a group of volunteers from organizations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with a shared interest in adaptive sports. Members of the Coalition acknowledge the multiple health and psychological benefits of adaptive sports participation and hope to make adaptive sports opportunities more accessible to everyone.
The second conference we attended is the largest rehabilitation clinic in the world. The event is the 95th ACRM. We really enjoyed learning about other technology that is being used in our industry. We also were allowed to show off our wheelchair basketball game. We were very excited to see the rehabilitation world react to what we have done. It is the first of its kind. And seeing the faces was an amazing experience.
