Due to the recent ongoing pandemic, personal hygiene control and healthcare in everyday life are emerging as important factors in terms of preventive medicine. Under these circumstances, wearable and remote sensors and devices have recently come into the spotlight as a solution, due to their capacity to continuously and easily measure and monitor individual health status. In addition, it is predicted that the methods of health promotion activities, such as medical treatment and rehabilitation, will switch to being non-face-to-face, in consideration of pandemics. Given these points, this Special Issue will present a selection of related topics, including healthcare methods utilizing new technologies such as wearable sensors, remote sensors, and AR/VR devices in terms of personal healthcare, diagnosis, and rehabilitation methods.
This Special Issue aims to explore the opportunities and challenges regarding the application of sensor technologies for the measurement, monitoring, and diagnostics of individual health within the context of a new concept of healthcare.
Contributions that address the following topics, in addition to any other related topics, are welcome:
- Wearable Healthcare Sensors and Systems;
- Remote Healthcare Solutions;
- New Concept of Telemedicine System;
- Flexible Sensors for Healthcare and Diagnostics;
- AR/VR-Based Rehabilitation Systems;
- Remote Vital Sign Measurement Systems;
- Mobile Devices for Diagnostics;
- Smart Healthcare System.

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 2200 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.
