Special Issue "Physical Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Technologies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2022.
Interests: humanoid robots; human gait; rehabilitation robotics; artificial intelligence and its application
Human gait analysis is one of the most active research fields in bioelectronics and has a broad range of applications, such as pathology detection, rehabilitation, prosthesis design, biometric identification and humanoid robotic locomotion. Clinical gait analysis methods aim to provide an objective means of quantifying the severity of pathology. A set of pathology-related gait disorders have been identified and can be used to support diagnosis and the development of new assistive technologies.
The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on the intersection of neuroscience and Physical Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Technologies, providing new approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems’ applications, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, practicing clinicians, and everyday use.
Submissions to this Special Issue on “Physical Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Technologies” are solicited to represent a snapshot of the field’s development by covering a range of topics that include, but are not limited to, new devices, algorithms, solutions and applications in the following areas:
- Human gait and balance analysis;
- The diagnosis of gait disorders;
- Neuroscience-based physical diagnosis;
- Assistive instrumentation;
- Augmentative devices;
- Assistive robotics devices;
- Wearable sensors.

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. Electronics 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 2000 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.
