Interests: minimisation of falls risks among older adults; understanding biomechanical factors for knee osteoarthritis; effects of 3D visual perception on flooring to control walking patterns to reduce slipping risks; biomechanical modelling and simulation of the major factors of falls when older adults are walking, (i.e. tripping, slipping and balance loss); footwear ergonomics to control gait patterns

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Knee osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative condition that causes pain, impairs walking and incurs substantial financial costs, both for individuals and healthcare systems. It is, therefore, important to either prevent or slow the progression of knee osteoarthritis and establish effective interventions to alleviate the condition. With biomechanical analysis having been utilized to investigate knee joint function, the scope of this Special Issue is the ‘Biomechanical Understanding of Knee Joint Osteoarthritis’; this includes fundamental experimental investigations of knee osteoarthritis and biomechanics research for its prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Manuscripts submitted for publication should be based on biomechanical experiments, and the following research areas will be prioritized: (1) the biomechanical characteristics of knee osteoarthritis and (2) the evaluation of intervention strategies (i.e., surgery, physiotherapy, medication and assistive devices). We will also consider comprehensive reviews that summarize published findings concerning the biomechanics of knee osteoarthritis, propose novel concepts and suggest important research directions.

This Special Issue is a continuation of our previous Special Issue, “Biomechanical and Biomedical Factors of Knee Osteoarthritis”, which was closed on 25 May 2022 and included 28 valuable peer-reviewed papers.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
