WHEN EVERYDAY LIFE BECOMES DIFFICULT
An impairment of the central nervous system can lead to serious consequences for the person who suffers from it, whether the damage is located in the neurological system (central or peripheral), and whether these diseases are degenerative or acquired (following an accident). Among the abilities likely to be affected are sensations, strength, muscle tone, balance and coordination. These limitations pose significant challenges whilst performing simple tasks such as getting up, getting dressed and walking. The autonomy of the person affected is therein greatly compromised.
