video magnifier

My mom is 80 and has slowly lost her vision to AMD, she is legally blind, we saw the video magnifiers and they are very helpful. She would like to get one, but being on a fixed income, she would like to buy a used one. Any ideas on where to buy used ones? Thanks.

Re:video magnifier



Unfortunately getting a used video magnifier is not easy and the market is not particularly organized so far as I have ever been able to find out.

Check with your local blindness agencies – occasionally a video magnifier will be donated and if they don't need it they might sell it. Also check your state blindness agency – policies vary from state to state but they might be able to point you in a direction at least.

Also, look up Video Magnifiers on our website and check with manufacturer's listed. Sometimes a local sales rep will take an older model in trade (say if someone decides to upgrade to color) and have the old one available for resale.

Good luck and don't give up.

Does anyone know where I could find a used video magnifier for my mother?

I saw an earlier post but don't know if it's still available.

If you know of one, please email me at michele.bates@gmail.com

Thanks.


Re:video magnifier



I have a virtually unused video magnifier with a 20" flat screen. It is an auto-focus, color and b/w, freeze frame. I can attest though, that this is THE best investment for a parent, sibling or friend that has vision problems relating to being able to do day to day tasks (newspaper, books, checkbooks, recipes NOTES,CARDS and LETTERS. I'll travel to instruct the individual that will be using this BEAUTIFUL machine. References upon request.

Re:video magnifier



Not sure if it is allowed but I will post a link to my website where I sell used CCTV's. We think that we are less expensive than others who sell used.

www.thelowvisionstore.net

We are located in the Pacific Northwest but will ship anywhere and provide a 90 day warranty if the machine is out of factory warranty.

We also have a warehouse full of new Enhanced Vision desktop and portable systems that we will discount because we have given up our franchise.

Thank you

Re:video magnifier



We have a CLARITY MOBILEMATE that we're selling
My grandma paid a little over $2600 for it.
She's hoping to get $1200 for it, OR BEST OFFER
It is called a Mobilemate with 2-60 X magnification,
which I believe that Clarity now calls a "Carrymate".

http://www.clarityusa.com/index.php?option=com_con...

However, instead of a 10" screen, ours is a really
nice, all black 15" LCD screen (with the stickers
still on it), a carrying case and absolutely every
last scrap of instructions and paperwork associated
with the magnifier itself. We would also ship it for free.
It's literally in new condition since she has never
ever used it, save for unpacking it!
Please contact us at devon_kelly@sbcglobal.net
Thanks!
