AbleGamers to Showcase New Assistive Gaming Technologies at 2016 New York Metro Abilities Expo

HARPERS FERRY, WV--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - AbleGamers -- the leading charity and organization wielding the power of gaming to break down the barriers of economic and social isolation for people with disabilities -- is thrilled to announce its attendance at the New York Metro Abilities Expo from April 29 - May 1, 2016, to showcase the latest innovations in adaptive gaming technologies for disabled gamers.

AbleGamers will be located in the Adaptive Gaming Pavilion in Booth #1117 at Abilities Expo, sharing with attendees the positive impact gaming has on one's social and emotional health. Attendees will be able to try out for themselves the new adaptive gaming equipment AbleGamers provides to the disabled community via its Expansion Pack program -- free care packages containing modified controllers and peripherals designed to allow disabled gamers to enjoy today's hottest video games, allowing those with impaired mobility to experience what it is like to walk, run, climb, drive and even fly in a virtual world -- and learn more about the charity's support programs at the AbleGamers booth.

For nearly four decades, Abilities Expo has supported the disability community, hosting events in major cities around North America -- including Boston, San Francisco (Bay Area), New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto. Each Abilities Expo provides people with disabilities and their loved ones, as well as the medical community, insight on new assistive technologies and programs to help improve the lives of those with limitations. Numerous activities for the young and old are available, including educational workshops and hands-on experiences.

The New York Metro Abilities Expo will be held at the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center. Registration to the event is free and available at http://www.abilities.com/newyork/vregister.html.
