Dear Colleagues,During the past few decades, we have witnessed tremendous developments concerning applications of biosensors and biomedical devices in healthcare and biological research. The advances of micro/nanofabrication and electronics have dovetailed with innovative biomaterials, so as to enable biocompatible miniaturized sensors and systems with significant improvement in sensitivity, selectivity, longevity, and reliability. Consequently, numerous wearable devices and medical implants have emerged, which significantly enhance human life quality. Nevertheless, most of the devices and systems rely on a stable power source; this reliance presents many practical challenges. Difficulties include size limits, unreachable locations (of implants), and the requirement of monitors to work continuously for the long-term. In this Special Issue, we invite submissions of review articles, original research papers, and short communications covering a broad field of power management, power delivery, and energy harvesting for biosensors, healthcare wearable monitoring devices, and medical implants.
Contributions may include, but are not limited to:
- Wireless power transfer and energy harvesting for medical implants.
- Alternative approaches for powering medical implants.
- Power management in healthcare wearable devices.
- Power management in remote-sensing biosystems.
- Low-power biomedical devices and 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.
