Sports biomechanics is the application of the principles of biomechanics to the study of human movement in sports and exercise to quantitatively evaluate performance and reduce injury. Research methods in sports biomechanics have traditionally used standard laboratories for human movement analyses that incorporate multicamera motion capture systems, force platforms, and electromyographic devices. However, these approaches are often limited to a laboratory environment that limits the ability to analyze typical athletic movements in sporting environments. With advancements in technology, wearable sensors now offer the opportunity to measure the biomechanics of human movement in sports and athletic environments while maintaining the technical movements of athletes. The kinematics, kinetics, and muscle activity of human movement can all be determined with the instrumentation of wearable sensors, which can be applied to sports biomechanics in order to improve performance and minimize the risk of injury. This Special Issue aims to highlight the most recent research regarding the use of wearable sensors and their applications in sports biomechanics to quantitatively measure human movements.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
