ableSling Lite

£204.99ex vat


The ableSling Lite is a fantastic discreet in-situ manual transfer sling. It has been designed to be extremely universal and applicable for a whole manner of situations. For example, it can be used to be sat in all day long in case repositioning is required throughout the day or when ever 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. The ableSling Lite is a simplified version of our ableSling, and provides a significantly cheaper alternative if funding cannot be sourced. The ableSling Lite can be used in conjunction with our ableHarness, ableStrap and even our ableDry.
