At present, monitoring the course of the disease and the effect of therapy in clinical practice mostly depends on clinical scales and clinical impression. Such a description of the development of the patient’s condition is subject to intra-individual and inter-individual variability. In addition, such monitoring takes place only for a short time, mostly in the unnatural conditions of medical facilities. On the other hand, modern sensors enable increasingly accurate long-term monitoring of many important quantities. Reducing the variability of patient follow-up makes it possible to reduce the number of subjects in clinical trials and thus significantly reduce the cost of the studies. It also reduces the likelihood of false-negative results, thus saving the cost of developing new treatments. Smart sensor devices make it possible to acquire, process, and transmit data to users. Smart implants like orthopedic implants instrumented with strain gauges increase their lifespan. Retina implant systems using image sensors restore vision. Wearable body sensor networks comprising various types of sensors can monitor the course of vital variables for a long time, as well as the signal needed for therapeutic intervention. Biosensors enable the monitoring of physical activities. Results of machine learning methods contribute to the diagnosis of neurological disorders and the detection of tissue changes.
This Special Issue is addressed to all types of smart sensors designed for biomedical applications.
The topic of this Special Issue concerns the following areas of interest of the magazine: biosensors, sensor networks, smart/intelligent sensors, signal processing, data fusion, and deep learning in sensor systems.

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.
