Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

Sensing systems are well-established tools in clinical practice across a variety of medical applications, and yet there is increasing demand for new innovations to support rapidly evolving healthcare systems across the globe.

The aim of this Special Issue is to reflect on the latest developments in sensor systems that target medical applications and improvements in healthcare. We particularly invite contributions from interdisciplinary teams with clinical input to discuss development and translation of sensing technology towards clinical practice. This may encompass systems that enable improved clinical assessment, guide more effective intervention or support enhanced long-term condition monitoring.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • In vivo sensor systems (e.g., implanted devices);
  • Wearable sensor devices;
  • Sensors at the human-device interfaces (e.g., prosthetics);
  • Integration of sensing systems to inform clinical practice (e.g., Internet of Medical Things).

The team welcomes original research, case studies and reviews, please approach the Guest Editors if you would like to propose an article or discuss these topics beforehand. We look forward to your participation in this Special Issue.

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 2200 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.
