ableSling

Superb for a broad range of adults with neurological conditions, spinal cord injuries and more, the ableSling is the world’s first, in-situ sling that also has a seating element combined. The ableSling has been designed to enhance day-to-day living for adults who are unable to transfer themselves to and from a wheelchair. Whether it’s getting to and from the bed, to simply being an in-situ sling for repositioning as required throughout the day or being a transfer solution when out in the community when hoists are not available, it’s versatility is what makes this sling unique. It is fantastic for people who take part in sport and other activities. It’s uses in travel have meant that all forms of travel are now a viable, safe and comfortable option for people using a wheelchair . The seating element of our product ensures when adults are out of their wheelchair, pressure relief and support can be maintained with the ability to insert an existing wheelchair cushion inside the ableSling, a foam cushion, gel pad or even wedges – ensuring safety, dignity and comfort at all times.

The ableSling comes in 4 sizes:

  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • X-Large

The most common for Adults are Large and X-Large.
