Hundreds of millions of people worldwide live with one or more motor impairments caused by neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease, stroke or multiple sclerosis. Spinal cord injuries, on the other hand, often result in tetraplegia, the partial or total loss of use of all four limbs and torso, or in paraplegia, when the arms are not affected. Sensory and motor disability or decline adversely affect the lifestyle of these individuals, who are often unable to perform simple routine activities and everyday tasks such as, brushing teeth, bathing, shopping, taking a bus, etc. without assistance. It is therefore of paramount importance to restore functionality and help motor-impaired patients to recover full autonomy: in fact, autonomy is often an essential prerequisite for self-confidence, well-being and inclusion in society.
