Population aging is a growing phenomenon and causes a large increase in diseases derived from injury or degeneration of the central nervous system. In particular, the stroke is a leading cause of disability in the population over sixty years. Even car accidents are increasing significantly and this greatly affects the youth population. In particular, the traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of disability in people under forty years. For this reasons rehabilitation therapies, that require physiotherapy and care in specialized centres, are always more necessary. Therefore, in recent years, health care spending for these diseases has increased and is still expected a strong growth in the coming years.
