Over the years, poliomyelitis survivors may experience e progressive decline of physical strength accompanied by intolerance to cold, chronic pain and other disabilities. This condition, termed post-polio syndrome (PPS), may lead to the incapacity of living an independent life, generates suffering and considerable social costs. PPS usually arises after many years of partial/complete functional recovery with apparently stable neuromuscular functions. In developed countries, in fact, it is common experience that polio patients had a productive life before starting to experience PPS at the time of retirement. PPS is estimated to affect about 20 million people worldwide.
