Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless health monitoring, based on non-invasive and wearable sensors, actuators, and modern communication and information technologies offers an efficient and cost-effective solution that allows users to continue to live in their comfortable home environment instead of requiring expensive healthcare facilities. Such systems will allow healthcare personnel to monitor important physiological signs of their patients in real time, assess health conditions, and provide feedback from distant facilities. Research on robust wearable wireless sensors for healthcare applications drawing from recent advanced wireless, integrated circuits and systems, and new biomaterial technologies is getting increasingly important. The recent advances in wearable wireless sensors have opened opportunities for developing new sensing techniques and disruptive biomedical and healthcare applications. A network of wearable and implantable devices forms an Internet of Thing (IoT) system in healthcare, called the “Internet of Healthcare Things”. The IoT of healthcare is a technology that extends care beyond the clinic or hospital to modernize our health systems. For instance, the Internet of Things is currently enabling the utilization of several new connected devices in unattended patients in their home to extend health care beyond the clinic or the hospital. This Special Issue of Sensors, entitled "Wearable Wireless Sensors", will focus on all aspects of the research and development related to these areas. Original research papers that focus on the design and experimental implementation of new wearable sensors, as well as papers that focus on their testing for biomedical and clinical applications, are welcome. Both reviews and original research articles will be published.

We look forward to, and welcome, your participation in 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.
