Special Issue "Sensors for Biomechanics Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2020).
Interests: equine biomechanics, motion analysis, canine biomechanics, muskolo-skeletal modelling and simulation
Sensors in biomechanics have changed and extended the possibilities of biomechanical analysis. In particular, IMU (inertial measurement units) are key elements in robotics, feedback systems, and motion analysis in biomechanics and can be combined with EMG systems (muscle activity) and ultrasound systems to detect muscle activity and tendon strains.
High-precision detection and feedback systems in medicine, sports, research, and robotics applications are essential and will revolutionize biomechanics in the near future. This growing progress in the performance of sensors leads to a steady approach to practical needs.
This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in the development, testing, and modelling of biomechanical sensors on the component level as well as within biomechanical systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Force sensors (strain gauge, piezo, etc.)
- Pressure sensors (capacitive, optical, piezo, strain gauge, etc.)
- Fibre optic sensors
- EMG electrodes (surface, needle, array, capacitive)
- Ultrasound sensors
- Ultra-wide band radar
- Optical tracking systems
- Nanomaterial-based sensors
- Advanced Sensor Characterization Techniques
- Sensor Error Modelling and Online Calibration
- Pattern recognition algorithm
- Deep learning

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.
