Polio (Poliomyelitis) used to be called Infantile Paralysis. It is an infectious disease caused by one of three viruses and can affect people of any age. In a minority of cases it can cause paralysis of any part of the body, but especially the legs. Many people who survived the earlier polio epidemics of the last century are still living today having led active and independent lives. Twenty or more years later some of these people experience new symptoms known as the late effects of polio (LEP) or Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) for which they need to seek help.
