Hey so I have a DualSense and thought it important to highlight this bit from the instruction manual.

The PS5 booklet says, “Do not use the vibration or trigger effect features if you have any ailment or injury to the bones, joints, or muscles of your hands or arms.” The instructions continue, “If you have an ailment or an injury, do not play titles with these features using the controller unless you have set those functions to ‘Off’.”
The haptic feedback in the Sony PS5 DualSense controller is described as an immersion feature that goes well beyond rumble features. Common examples Sony previously offered when describing the DualSense include features like simulating the sand on a beach through vibrations or making the trigger buttons tenser to simulate pulling back on a bow. However, players with difficulties in their hands or joints due to injury or disability may not be able to comfortably use those features.
