This article outlines how bodies with neurological conditions such as spinal cord injury and stroke engage in processes of re-appropriation while using exoskeletons and some of the challenges they face. The main task of exoskeletons in rehabilitative environments is either to rehabilitate or ameliorate anatomic functions of impaired bodies. In these complex processes, they also play a crucial role in recasting specific corporeal phenomenologies. For the accomplishment of these forms of corporeal re-appropriation, the role of experts is crucial. This article explores how categories such as bodily resistance, techno-inter-corporeal co-production of bodies and machines, as well as body work mark the landscape of these contemporary forms of impaired corporeality. While defending corporeal extension rather than incorporation, I argue against the figure of the ‘cyborg’ and posit the idea of ‘residual subjectivity’.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54484/1/Butnaru_2-o3rxh1h1qigl8.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-08-05T07:12:19Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54484/1/Butnaru_2-o3rxh1h1qigl8.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2021-09</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-08-05T07:12:19Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Butnaru, Denisa</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Exoskeletons, Rehabilitation and Bodily Capacities</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
