Maxi-Aids provides items to enhance the lives of the Blind, Low Vision, Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Diabetics, individuals with mobility issues and Senior Citizens.

With the holiday shopping season in full swing Maxi-Aids, a world-leading supplier of products for independent living that improve the lives of special needs individuals, has released its list of Holiday Gift Ideas for Independent Living. Topping this year's list are Reizen Talking Atomic Watches. "We expect our popular line of atomic watches to be our biggest seller this holiday season," says Maxi-Aids President Elliot Zaretsky. "They're attractive, reasonably priced and you never have to set them."
