Great quality, made life so much easier after a swim or kayaking. I lay it over my chair keeping it 100% dry. It’s very comfortable and surprisingly warm. No more damp cushions. I’ve also used it as a picnic blanket; it’s so versatile! I’m very pleased with my ableDry.

ableDry, Daniel

I recently purchased the ableSling for a flight. I am a wheelchair user and had avoided flying for two years due to injuries arising from manual transfers. The ableSling worked very well. The transfers were smooth and the sling eliminated the risk of injury to me. I have bought other products in the past but none have worked as well. I would strongly recommend this product and I’m now looking forward to my next flight with the ableSling.

A revolution in air travel for disabled people! I have been paralysed from the neck down for 39 years. When I was younger it was possible to lift me with just my arms and legs – this became painful over time, but now I have found the answer – unless you try it, you will not believe how fantastic it is – the ableSling is a revolution in design and technology for disabled people.

ableSling, Stephen

We are so pleased with our ableSling. We used it to transfer in and out of a beach wheelchair and it was so quick, easy and above all, safe. It has been in the sea and dried out perfectly – enabling our son to have a day at the beach that otherwise would have been too difficult. What a great product.

ableSling, Elise

ableSling is incredible. I’ve used it to fly to competitions when competing for Team GB in Boccia. I can honestly say I’ve never been comfier on a flight. I would usually get lower back pain and increased muscle tone when flying due to the lack of seat support but not with the ableSling. I felt comfortable through all transfers. If you are indecisive about whether to invest in one, I can highly recommend it.

ableSling, Claire
