What is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
According to the CDC, each year approximately 2.5 million people sustained a traumatic brain injury, either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries. Within this, each year approximately 282,000 people are hospitalized and 56,000 deaths occur due to TBI’s. In total, more than 5.3 million people live with the disabilities caused by TBI.
These numbers are projected to grow with the World Health Organization projecting that by 2020, TBI will become the leading cause of neurological disability across all age groups.
