Possum develops, manufactures, supplies, installs and supports electronic assistive technology products and systems. It also assesses clients’ needs and abilities, and trains and supports them in the use of their Electronic Assistive Technology (EAT) equipment.
Possum’s mission is to harness modern technology to empower people with disabilities and increase their independence. This vision is achieved by two means: through a business, Possum Limited, and a charity, the Possum Trust.
The company is an independent, privately owned British company. It was founded in 1961 by an engineer called Reginald Maling. Volunteering at the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, he encountered a young man who had been injured in a water-skiing accident. In April 2009, Possum Ltd received one of the most prestigious business awards in the UK, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
