    Microsoft makes the XBox Adaptive Controller. Never used one myself though, not sure if it's totally quad friendly. Logitech also makes their 'Adaptive Gaming Kit' to extend the functionality of that controller much farther, with big buttons connected via plugs and wires that you can place where they work best for you.

        Medicaid sometimes covers the quad stick and there are also many grants and scholarships for it

          I CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY A QUADSTICK. HOW CAN I GET ONE?



          Medicaid, the VA and private insurance have provided funding for Quadsticks. The process usually starts with talking to a prosthetics counselor to get a prescription.

          There are charities that specialize in helping people with a wide range of disabilities play video games. They have a great deal of experience in finding the right equipment to match the needs of the video game player.

          In the US:

          Able Gamers

          Warfighter Engaged

          In the UK:

          Special Effect.

          General charities, such as Make a Wish and local MDA chapters have also provided systems.

          Finally, GoFundMe has successfully been used to raise the funds to purchase a Quadstick for several people now using Quadsticks. If you start a GoFundMe campaign, be sure and post a link to it in the forum.
