In recent years, the use of robotics to help motor-disabled people has experienced a significant growth, mostly based on the development and improvement of biosensor technology and the increasing interest in solving accessibility and rehabilitation limitations in a more natural and effective way. For that purpose, biomedical signal processing has been combined with robotic technology, such as exoskeletons or assistive robotic arms or hands. However, efforts are still needed to make these technologies affordable and useful for end users, as current biomedical devices are still mostly present in rehabilitation centers, hospitals and research facilities.
This Special Issue is focused on breakthrough developments in the field of assistive and rehabilitation robotics, including current scientific progress in biomedical signal processing, robotic manipulation and grasping, mobile robotics, exoskeletons and prosthetics. Papers should address innovative solutions in these fields. Both review articles and original research papers are solicited.

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 1800 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.
