Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical rehabilitation is an essential component of the healthcare system, enabling people to move beyond their deficits to achieve their goals, maintain quality of life, and engage with their community. Understanding a person’s mobility status, mental state, etc. is essential for providing informed and high quality rehabilitation. Wearable sensors are becoming important tools to achieve this understanding, especially since data can be collected outside the clinic or lab to provide quantitative information in a person’s chosen environment.

This Special Issue accepts submissions of high-quality research papers and review articles in the topic of wearable sensor applications for rehabilitation. Submissions must be original contributions that have not been published before and are not currently under review by other journals.

Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Wearable sensors systems for outcome measurement;
  • Machine learning approaches to extract knowledge from wearable sensor systems;
  • Embedded sensor systems in wearable assistive devices (i.e., prostheses, orthoses, etc.);
  • Wearable sensor systems to characterize mental state;
  • Sensor approaches to enhance current clinical outcome measures;
  • Smartphone applications related to rehabilitation that employ sensor or imaging approaches.
