Each year in France, about 170000 persons are victims of cranial and spinal cord traumas. Almost 10000 of them will have lifelong incapacitating handicaps: motor, cognitive and/or behavioural sequellae for cranial traumas; paraplegia or tetraplegia for spinal cord traumas. It is a priority for public health.
