The field of rehabilitation medicine is changing at a rapid and unprecedented rate, as novel health technologies that are capable of augmenting the standard of care for a multitude of conditions are entering the market. Despite the dearth of promising new technologies, health professionals are struggling to keep up with the technical, legal, and practical issues surrounding the integration of new technologies into common clinical practice. It is this nexus of health technology entrepreneurship and pragmatic clinical care that we wish to explore in this Special Issue. We will be exploring research that highlights how innovative technologies are creating new treatment options for conditions where few treatments were previously available, but also how more simple technology interventions can be seamlessly integrated into a clinical workflow. This Special Issue will be a meaningful step forward in empowering health professionals and researchers alike to create and employ innovative technological interventions in the field of rehabilitation medicine and beyond.
