Reizen Ball Games That Provide Outdoor Fun

Visually impaired people can have as much fun as anyone else with MaxiAids’ selection of low vision Ball Games. As part of our wide inventory of Recreational & Fun products, we have low vision aids that will keep everyone included in the outdoor fun.

Choose from adaptive audible balls for soccer, basketball, football, rugby, cricket, softball, and more! Beeping balls let visually impaired players know where the ball is going by its sound instead of using sight. For a more versatile low vision aid, we have a Mini Beeper that attaches to any ball. We also have balls with bells or rattles to let players know where to locate the ball when it’s moving.

Below are inclusive Ball Games for visually impaired users, so they can use their sense of sound instead of sight to locate where the ball is going.

Take These Pocket Magnifiers Wherever You Go

As we slowly get back into the swing of life due to COVID-19 restrictions easing up, visually impaired people will need aids to assist them with everyday life. Some of those aids in particular are pocket magnifiers, which are perfect for on-the-go use.

When out in public again, we don’t have the comforts of home like we’re used to. Visually impaired people need magnifiers to read menus, see clothing labels when shopping & more, and pocket magnifiers can provide that in any setting.

Pocket magnifiers are available in a variety of strengths, including 2x, 5x, 10x, 15x, and 20x. They are valuable to the visually impaired community in many ways, but mainly because they’re affordable and provide magnification in a pinch when small print is difficult to read without a magnifier.

Take the following Pocket Magnifiers with you wherever you go this summer, as we slowly get back to going out to restaurants, shopping, and enjoying the pleasures of life again.
