While volunteering at the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Reginald Maling met a young man paralysed from the neck down. He had very little voice and could only alert nurses by blowing on a whistle hung near his mouth. Maling designed a suck or blow mouthpiece that enabled the man to activate mechanisms to turn on a light, or the TV, and eventually use an electric typewriter.

Introduction

Introduction

Maling called his invention Patient Operated Selector Mechanism or POSM. As a near match for the word Possum – Latin for ‘I can’ – it became our Company name when it was founded in 1961. Today Possum continues to develop innovative Assistive Technology (AT) solutions to help people with a range of needs including the elderly and people with learning difficulties. As a result of our efforts, in 2009 we received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.

Our Mission We use technology to empower people with disabilities by increasing their independence. We do this in two ways: through Possum Limited and an independent charity, the Possum Trust. As an independent, privately owned British company we develop, manufacture, supply, install and support AT products and systems. We assess our clients’ needs and abilities, as well as train and support them in the use of their equipment. As the benefits of AT become more valued, additional funds are becoming available from Government, charities and other sources to bring this technology to ever more people.

Assistive Technology

What is Assistive Technology? For many disabled and elderly people even the simplest of tasks can be an impossible challenge. That is why we are committed to helping these people take back control of their lives – without relying on others. For half a century we have developed the widest range of solutions from a single company that enable thousands of people to do simple things like answer the door, switch on the lights, make a phone call, draw the curtains or turn on the TV. We back it up with the most thorough after-sales service possible. Our solutions are all based on Assistive Technology (AT). We install and train people to use these advanced but simple to use solutions in their own homes, schools, hospitals, hospices, and care homes.

‘AT’ Covers a Wide Range of Applications: - Learning suites for schools - Telecare systems to connect carers to clients 24 hours a day - Personal electronic controllers - Nursecall Systems For installing complex systems in large new builds or refurbishments, our project management service works closely with architects, housing authorities, housing associations, charities and private companies. Our technology solves a whole host of everyday needs.

Switches Switches are connected to controllers and communication aids and when activated (contact is made with the switch) send a signal to the device or devices to be operated. Switches utilise even the most minimal movement capabilities of an individual and can be activated by hand, foot, finger, head, chin, mouth, sip/puff, knee etc.

We provide a range of mounting solutions for all our switches. Switches that are appropriately mounted and situated according to the requirements of the user enable correct operation of the device. All the range of touch/ contact activated switches feature auditory and tactile feedback which means that the user will know that they have activated the switch via movement and a clicking sound. All switches are supplied with an industry standard 3.5 mm mono Jack, unless stated otherwise.

GPS

GPS Currently over 100 million people require supervision due to various forms of memory impairment. That number is expected to increase to 277 million by 2050, according to The 2013 World Alzheimer’s Report. 60% of them will become “lost” at least once. 70% of those will become “lost” 3 or more times. 46% of wanderers not found within 24 hours may die. GPS devices are now becoming more common especially to provide piece of mind to famililes and loved ones as well as being able to provide reassurance that if someone wanders, they can be found. There is a variety of product options, including shoe insoles, or trackers that can be wrist worn or clipped onto a lanyard.

Dementia

Dementia Dementia refers to different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. The word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dementiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with Dementia they have become severe enough to affect daily life. A person with Dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour. There are currently 850,000 people in the UK with Dementia. We have a range of products to help those with Dementia and support their loved ones. These include pill dispensers, door and window sensors, tracking devices, and bed sensor mats to provide greater quality of life to those with Dementia, and offer peace of mind to relatives.
