local inputDevices = system.getInputDevices()

-- Traverse all input devices
for deviceIndex = 1,#inputDevices do
    -- Fetch the input device's axes
    local inputAxes = inputDevices[deviceIndex]:getAxes()

    -- Print all axis maximum property values
    for axisIndex = 1,#inputAxes do
        local inputAxis = inputAxes[axisIndex]
        print( inputAxis.descriptor .. ": Max value = " .. tostring(inputAxis.maxValue) )
