In recent years, numerous wearable biosensor systems for health monitoring have entered our daily lives and attracted a great deal of attention and discussions in the public, the scientific community, industry, and governmental agencies. The research and development of smart wearable biosensors for personalized e-Health services have, therefore, been done around the world. These wearable systems for health monitoring may consist of different types of miniature biosensors, capable of measuring physiological parameters, such as vital signs (i.e., heart rate, respiration rate, body and skin temperature, oxygen saturation, etc.), skin conductance, blood pressure, electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalography (EEG), acceleration, rotation, etc., and one can also use the measured data to calculate the number of steps, calories, mood changes, cardio-health, fitness conditions, posture, cognition state, sleep quality, fall detection, seizure prediction, etc., and for various monitoring purposes to improve the subjects' quality of life, health management, disease control status, and even the survival rate from emergency rescue operators. The wearable biosensors can often be connected wirelessly to a cellphone application to make them very user friendly, inexpensive, and ubiquitous. The rapid world-wide development and public embracement of these wearable biosensors (e.g., Fitbit™ and various smart watches) support the need for a dedicated Special Issue in this area. These wearable biosensors can reduce healthcare costs in global aging communities, and the continuous improvement of wearable biosensors systems can potentially transform the future of world-wide healthcare.
