Thanks to the (r)evolution in sensors and sensing systems (wearable, wireless, micro-/nanoscale), computing power (ubiquitous computing) and algorithms (real-time modelling, neural computing, deep learning, etc.) a lot of (wearable) technology is being developed for monitoring health status of individuals in real-time. The wearable technology developed in the field of Human Health Engineering is not only aimed at patients but also at healthy people. Application areas include, but are not limited to, patient monitoring in hospital settings, (chronically ill) patient home monitoring, depression monitoring, stress monitoring at work, drowsiness monitoring of car drivers, monitoring of physical condition of athletes, activity monitoring of elderly people, etc.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring the development of technology for monitoring the physical or mental status of individuals in a variety of applications. Contributions can focus on sensors, wearable hardware, algorithms, or integrated monitoring systems. Survey papers and reviews are also welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
