I am visually impaired and A couple of years ago, I bought a Beierley electronic desktop magnifier. I use it almost all the time and have never looked back. :-)

    Rubber gloves because I have OCD and struggle touching things

    I am not using as many now but used to get through 2-3 boxes of 100 a week

    The gloves were very liberating when I first used them. I was able to use my hands to touch things just like a normal person would be able to - something simple like opening a drawer was no longer a challenge - before I’d have to work out how I was going to do it lol

    One cup kettle no pouring boiling water , as vusually impaired I can't see well and being in a wheelchair as well means I'm too low down to pour from normal kettle

    Probably not your typical aid but a belt to tie around my waist that I can attach the dog to on his lead.

    It helps when you use crutches but still it is not ideal as it is a bit like synchronised swimming - you and the dog need to try to be in step.

    I am hoping that someone will think of a better solution
