Special Issue "Advanced Physiological Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018).
Interests: physiological measurements; electrocardiography; ballistocardiography; bioimpedance measurements; impedance pneumography; non-invasive sensors
Physiological sensing deals with the sensors and analyses of different biological signals. Developed applications have mainly been for clinical and medical purposes in hospitals, healthcare centers, and clinics. The current trend in healthcare is that citizens will actively participate in health promotion and follow their own state of health. Nowadays, there are a wide array of different devices available for consumers to measure and follow physiological signals. The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together innovative sensors and actuators for non-invasive physiological sensing applications. Papers addressing a new technology, novel course of action, unobtrusiveness, and integration in garments or environment are sought.
Both review articles and original research papers relating to the sensors and actuators in non-invasive physiological sensing applications are solicited.

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. Sensors 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.
