Interests: medical instrumentation, mobile health diagnostics, wearable sensors, biosignal processing, modeling, simulation, and development of novel algorithms to understand dynamic processes and extract distinct features of physiological systems
Smartphones have become so ubiquitous that they are being used as virtually wearable monitors, including heart rate and activity monitoring. By taking advantage of the smartphone’s processing power, peripheral noninvasive and cost-effective sensors, and wireless communications capabilities, recent efforts have been made to create various medical applications for self-monitoring. For example, there have been some recent advances which allow measurements of respiratory rates and cardiac arrhythmia detection all directly from a video camera of a smartphone without the use of external sensors. Given the progress to date, this Special Issue aims to publish new advances in extracting physiological measurements from a smartphone with or without external sensors. Some of the physiological measurement capabilities of interest may include new advances in heart rates, respiratory rates, tidal volume, respiratory sound diagnostics, cardiac arrhythmias, and blood pressure data acquisition and processing. New algorithm development for extraction of the above-mentioned physiological measurements that can be applicable for smartphones is also of significant interest for this Special Issue.

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.
