If you’ve checked out The Mighty before, you’ve probably read at least one of The Mighty’s product lists. For each list, we poll you, the community, to find out what makes your like a little bit easier while living with a chronic illness, disability or mental health condition, whether it’s pocket products, things you need on your nightstand or gadgets to make your life easier and more accessible.

This year for Amazon Prime Day — a two-day event July 15 and 16 — we wanted round up a list of deals you can cash in on specifically if you live with a disability or health condition. Though Amazon hasn’t released all of its deals yet — rumored to include more than 1 million items — it might be a great time to get a good deal on that Roomba, new set of headphones or foam mattress topper you’ve had an eye on.
