This thesis performs an initial exploration of the topic of avatars with disability. Therefore some related topics are explored, namely VR, avatars and the concepts of immersion, presence and embodiment. Further a survey is conducted to gauge peoples opinion on and thoughts about avatars with disability. Finally a study is conceptualised which aims to find how comfortable disabled people are with using avatars with disability and which reactions they get from others. The survey shows that participants were not opposed to the idea of providing avatars with disability for those who want them however they were more hesitant when asked if they themselves would use such avatars.
