Whether you’d like something simple and portable or an organizer for various medications, MaxiAids has you covered! Blind, low vision, and deaf users will be able to choose from a number of pillboxes which include braille lettering, flashing light alarms, and more.

Each compartment displays a day of the week, as well as an AM or PM logo, in both bold black text and braille lettering.

Weekly Pill Planner Braille

This color-coded pill planner is a great way to keep track of your daily medications.

Individual containers contain four different slots: morning, afternoon, evening, and night.

 

Pill Box with Audible and Flashing Reminder Alarms

Never forget your medication again with this helpful pillbox with reminder alarms! This organizer includes 14 separate containers, each labeled Sunday-Saturday, so you can have separate compartments for morning and evening medications. At the center of the device is a digital clock with simple alarm settings that allow you to choose the time of your next alert. When the alarm goes off, the alert will sound and the corresponding pill compartment will be illuminated by a flashing light. Each pill compartment is labeled with bold black text and braille lettering.

Kill Germs and Viruses with MaxiAids’ Disinfectant Products

by Danielle Tralongo

It's easy to get sick during the winter months— and now more than ever we need to do everything we can to stay healthy. Whether you're going to work or running your errands, MaxiAids is here to make sure you can do so safely.

Some of the best precautions to take are to make sure your home, office, and any other space stay clean and sanitary. To prevent the spread of germs, MaxiAids recommends the following Personal Protection Equipment to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy year-round.

 

Helios LED UVC Disinfection Wand

A great way to stay healthy is to clean your belongings regularly to rid them of any germs. With this Helios portable disinfection wand, this process will only take 30 seconds! Simply wave the wand over your keyboard, phone, keys, and more. With a concentrated 270-280nm UVC light, the Helios disinfection wand is sure to give you added sanitation and peace of mind.

 

Steam Inhaler

Congestion is always uncomfortable, and it becomes even more common during the winter. If you find yourself congested, this steam inhaler is sure to give you fast relief. With adjustable vapor settings, an indicator light, and a separate aromatherapy tank, this steam inhaler is sure to clear your congestion with comfort and ease.

 

Sani-Cloth Plus Germicidal Disposable Wipes

 Sanitizing wipes are a crucial tool for fighting off infections. Capable of killing germs and virus particles, the Sani-Cloth disinfecting wipes meet both CDC and OSHA guidelines and are incredibly effective in ensuring that your belongings stay clean and sanitary. Great for cleaning your office desk, car, groceries, and more.

 

Talking Non-Contact Bilingual Infrared Thermometer

Check your temperature with ease! Simply hold this thermometer near your forehead or wrist for a few moments while the infrared sensor scans for your temperature. Upon completion, the thermometer reads your results out loud in either English or Spanish. Use it before heading out to work or the grocery store to ensure that you are well enough to go out.

 

Red Face Mask with Wide Clear Window

Wearing a mask is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. While face coverings are very important, they can create a challenge for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Wearing a mask with a clear plastic window at the front helps to communicate with deaf individuals more effectively. Made of polyester with adjustable elastic ear loops, this mask is comfortable, washable, and reusable.

 

Keeping yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy this winter has never been easier! With these helpful tools and many others like them, MaxiAids keeps cleaning and sanitizing fast and simple.

Please note: while these products are effective in keeping their users safe and healthy, they alone are not foolproof. While using these products, please continue to follow all CDC guidelines, such as social distancing and frequent hand washing.
