   schema:description ""Science and technology have become central to the daily experiences of health and illness for older people, from pharmaceuticals to walkers and cell phones. This has resulted in the 'technogenarian'- the technologically savvy older person. The authors investigate elders' experiences of health, illness, science, and technology; they emphasize the need to put aging, science, and technology in the centre of analyses of health and illness. Technogenarians adds theoretical and empirical depth to our understanding of two concurrent trends: firstly, the biomedical aspects of aging bodies, minds, and emotions, including the development of anti-aging or longevity medicine; and secondly, the rise of gerontechnology industries and professionsƯ, who largely accept the aging processes and who provide technology to assist the changes brought on by ageing. By investigating elders' experiences of health, illness, science, and technology, Technogenarians theorizes how and where these two trends overlap and differ in relation to ageism, health, and illness"--"@en ;
