Hello, I have a DualSense and think it’s important to highlight this little bit from the manual.

The PS5 booklet reads: “Do not use vibrations or trigger effects if you suffer from any illness or injury to the bones, joints, or muscles of your hands or arms.”; The instruction continues, “If you get sick or injured, do not play games with these features in your controller unless you have set those functions to ‘Off’.”
The haptic feedback in the Sony PS5 DualSense controller is described as an immersive feature that goes far beyond loud features. Common examples Sony came up with previously when describing the DualSense include features like simulating beach sand through vibrations or making trigger buttons tighter to simulate the back pull action of the bow. However, players who have hand or joint difficulties due to injury or disability may not be able to comfortably use those features.
