Special Issue "Theory, Design and Prototyping of Wearable Electronics and Computing"
A special issue of Computers (ISSN 2073-431X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 July 2017
The increase in world population along with a significant ageing proportion, forces rapid rise in healthcare cost. The healthcare system is going through a transformation in which continuous monitoring of inhabitants is possible even without hospitalization. The advancement of sensing technology, embedded system, wireless communication technology, nano-technology, and miniaturization make it possible to develop smart systems to monitor human activities continuously. The developed wearable sensors monitor physiological parameters along with other symptoms to decide whether any abnormal and/or unforeseen situation arises. This crucial help can be provided at times of dire need. This Special Issue will review and report the latest systems on activity monitoring based on wearable sensors, and relevant issues that need to be addressed to tackle the challenges faced.
