Biomedical sensors are set to revolutionise medical healthcare, in both hospitals and domestic environments. Thanks to miniaturisation efforts and the emergence of wireless communication systems, biomedical sensors are able to provide support for the continuous monitoring of various health conditions, as well as for early diagnostics and re-education. Such devices are also of paramount importance to keep an eye on the health of infants and elderly population. From non-invasive to implantable devices, the research and development of innovative biomedical sensors is a true multidisciplinary adventure, going way beyond the simple transduction of physical or biological events. Smart biomedical sensors can effectively gather and process different types of information resulting from a given situation. Such devices have also brought their benefits for impaired people, by restoring either auditive or visual perception, while the current trend is to capture and transmit more nervous signals in prosthetics. This Special Issue is dedicated to meet at the crossroads of the different research communities involved in the latest research for smart biomedical sensors and their applications, with an emphasis on emerging technologies that have a strong potential to ensure a better support to the practitioners, to restore specific body functions, or, more generally, to improve self-awareness of any medical condition.

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. 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 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.
