De l'ajustement entre les prothèses et les personnes: interactions et transformations mutuelles.

Abstract : Using prostheses for acting results from a long work of fitting together prostheses, the disabled persons and those surrounding them. This paper aims at describing this work. Following muscular dystrophy patients who rely upon human and/or non human help in their daily life, it will be shown that this work is a collective endeavour for adapting the prosthesis to the disabled person, making her/him feel the prosthesis as part of her/himself, and articulating the prosthesis to those who care for her/him. What is at stake is the dynamics of the collective, i.e. the transformation of bodies and persons, and their mutual interactions.
