Special Issue "Rehabilitation Robots and Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2022.
Interests: Biomechanics of gait; pediatric rehabilitation; assistive technologies to assist gait using an exoskeletal robot
Rehabilitation using high technology digital devices is a leading-edge advance in rehabilitation medicine. Using robot-assisted fatigue-free training, we can provide optimal task-specific, goal-oriented, and intense motor training. Robots can also be used for motor assistance and compensate for the impaired function as a type of orthosis or assistive device. Digital sensors can assess the function of the patients more quantitatively as well. With these digital data, we will be able to monitor the patients quantitatively, analyze big data from them, and provide more precise rehabilitation for optimal recovery.
At first, all the emerging technologies induced inflated expectations but we have made significant progress over the years. We made it through the trough of disillusionment and now it’s becoming common practice in the rehabilitation area.
But, it is still hard to satisfy both functionality and adoptability for innovative technologies, including rehabilitation robotics and sensor technologies. Many engineers and clinicians are working hard to push it to a feasible and affordable level. The scope of this Special Issue will cover innovative high technologies concerning robots and sensors that effectively complement standard rehabilitation.

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 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.
