Possum Product Overview
The Possum Nursecall system is a highly flexible and adaptable solution for any care environment.
- Simple to use
- Wireless based
- Fast installation
- Adaptable and flexible
- Protects staff and residents
- Works with a full range of Assisted Technology Devices
The primary selection of the various call points are powered by battery, eliminating the need for expensive and invasive re cabling to be undertaken.
Battery life is approximately 2 years using standard off the shelf AAA alkaline batteries and significantly longer if you chose to use off the shelf AAA lithium batteries. In built battery monitoring algorithms will alert you in plenty of time once the battery voltage begins to drop and the batteries need replacing.
Batteries in the call points are easy to change and can be undertaken by any reasonably competent person, thereby eliminating the need to call an engineer out to undertake a simple task.
At the heart of the system lies the radio repeaters and the radio pagers. Powerful radio repeaters (which do require mains power) will ensure that every part of your building including the grounds can be successfully covered.
The radio pagers are small and discrete and will identify the source and type of call by way of audible, vibration and visual alerts on the colour screen. There is also an emergency assistance button on the pager that staff can activate if they are in a challenging situation and if used with our RFID field technology emitters, will give the location of that member of staff who needs assistance.
The pagers use a rechargeable battery that give up to 5 days standby duration and recharging them is as simple as dropping the pager into a dedicated charger dock as and when required.
As previously mentioned, the Possum system can also utilise RFID field technology for the purposes of staff protection or to alert if service users with dementia are moving out of their safe area.
A touchscreen Nursecall logger can be supplied which will record all activity from the call points and sensors linked Possum system. The data can be then exported in a CSV format or automatically emailed to a designated person for audit and recording purposes.
Third party systems (such as fire alarms, door concierge stations) and devices can also be linked to the system via the hardwired input on the call points if required.
As well as the various styles of fixed radio call points, the Possum Nursecall system can also accept a very wide range of additional assistive technology devices such as:
- Radio Pendants
- Fall Detectors (body worn or fixed position radar sensors)
- Bed / Chair Occupancy sensors (which can significantly reduce the occurrence of falls)
- Door/ Window sensors
- Flood sensors
- Epilepsy sensors (body worn and chair / bed versions)
- Jelly Bean buttons for those with limited manual dexterity
