Façonnement du corps vieillissant par les technologies

Abstract : Ageing is rarely apprehended as going hand in hand with technology. This article discusses how an implanted technology, spinal cord stimulation, constructs ageing and the aged body. It is through the exploration of the technology’s embodiment and incorporation, which is grounded in a post-phenomenological approach to bodies and technologies and which is based on 18 interviews conducted in spring 2012 in the Netherlands with people living with the technology, a neurosurgeon, a nurse and a product developer, that this issue is addressed. While the ageing body becomes a body in parts, ageing is key to living well with implanted technologies.
