Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Implantable and wearable medical devices are widely used in real-life applications, including health monitoring, rehabilitation engineering, and medical diagnosis. Scientific research in this multidisciplinary field involves numerical modeling analysis and engineering applications that fuse concepts, methods, and principles. Technological innovations always face diverse challenges, such as a priori information modeling, efficient computation, sensitivity, reliability, sensor configuration and optimization, miniaturization, and low-power design.

This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for original, high-quality papers that focus on state-of-the-art research results and comprehensive reviews of implantable and wearable medical devices, covering principal analysis, experimental exploration, sensor design, and prototype development. Research topics include (but are not limited to): experimental, theoretical, and numerical analysis studies in medical diagnostics; improvement and exploration of measurement methods and materials for sensors (bioelectrical, optical, electrochemical, biological, etc.); miniaturization, comfort, and low-power design of prototype devices; application and analysis of medical health signals (e.g., pattern recognition, sentiment analysis, rehabilitation applications, etc.).

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 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
