Over the years, Able Life has invented many innovative, reliable and stylish mobility aids, all with one aim – to give people the confidence and support needed to be comfortably independent at home. 

How Did Able Life Start?

Able Life’s and Stander's founder, Jan Miller, reached a point in her life when she had to become the primary caregiver to her beloved grandmother, Essie.

Jan quickly recognised the need for reliable mobility aids that would not only help her grandmother, but aids that would also help Jan support and care for her grandma, too.

So, Jan and her husband set about inventing many innovative mobility products that enabled Grandma Essie to keep living in her own home for many years.

What Makes Able Life’s Products so Special? 

Nowadays, Able Life and Stander continues this mobility aids legacy.

The team of Able Life’s inventors take everyday issues experienced by people around the world and create solutions that are affordable, user-friendly and look good. 

The Legacy

Able Life wants its products to help people live independently and hope that people will find the same freedom, independence and comfort that Grandma Essie experienced.

Able Life’s main aim is to – give people the confidence and support needed to be comfortably independent in their own homes.

Its uses are limitless, and you’ll quickly find it far superior to a standard over chair table. After using the oversized bamboo table for a short while, you’ll have wished you had found it years ago!

With the Able Life Swivel Tray Table, you simply swivel the tray 360 degrees to move it out of the way when no longer required. When required, simply swivel it back again!

Made from solid and durable materials, this mobility aid is sturdy and can be quickly assembled and installed – no tools are required.

Simply place the table’s feet directly under your chair’s feet – and that’s it!

The uses for this table are plentiful – you can eat, drink, work on your tablet, read, play cards, and work on crafting projects – and that’s just for starters. As an added bonus, you can also adjust the table’s height to make it the perfect level for you.
