The National Spinal Injuries Centre (NSIC) is the oldest, and one of the largest  spinal injuries centres in the world. It was created by Sir Ludwig Guttmann at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in 1944 to treat servicemen who had sustained spinal cord injuries in World War II. The Stoke Mandeville Games for wheelchair athletes began at the hospital and was widely seen as the moment that the Paralympic movement was born.
