Read our interview with AbleMove founder Josh Wintersgill.

The AbleSling is the most advanced discreet sit-in transfer sling on the market. The AbleSling is the ultimate product that will meet all your day-to-day needs.

Available in four different sizes, the AbleSling has been designed for anyone from children to large adults in wheelchairs who are unable to transfer themselves independently.

The AbleSling can be used by two to four lifters or with a hoist using the AbleSling’s looped hoist straps.

The AbleSling also has a built-in cushion compartment for superb comfort when having to sit out of your wheelchair. This means the AbleSling can be sat in all day long in case repositioning is required.

It can also be used whenever a manual transfer is required when out and about, such as hospital appointments, theme parks, transport, swimming, dentist, boats, adaptive skiing, and so much more.
