Newly-emerging technologies have been enhancing our life quality in many aspects, from automobile industry to pharmacology, home appliances to heavy-duty crafts, consumer tools to medical equipment, and etc. Among those technologies utilized for healthcare and biological investigations, while micro- and nano-fabrication provided miniaturized sensors and systems with better sensitivity and selectivity; telecommunications and innovations in electronics helped in reducing the cost, bringing convenience and establishing distanced care which was recently defined as personalized- and tele-medicine or mobile-health (m-Health). With novel biomaterials, all of these enabled efficient biomedical systems that could be wearable or deployed in vivo, targeting diagnosis, prognosis and investigations of chronic diseases as well as continuous health monitoring. In addition, the recent rising of internet of things (IoTs) and big data has paved the avenue for those biomedical devices to become popular and widely accepted by our society.
In this context, we invite submissions to this Special Issue “Physiological Monitoring Technologies” as review articles, original research papers, and short communications covering a broad field of technologies supporting physiological monitoring for both human and animal models, targeting health monitoring and biological studies.
Contributions may include, but are not limited to:
Design and development of sensors, electronics and systems for physiological monitoring
Smart computational schemes and/or algorithms to enhance the efficiency and efficacy of physiological monitoring systems
Smart materials and/or design to enhance the efficiency and efficacy of physiological monitoring systems
Novel concepts, technologies and implementation for acquiring, processing and monitoring physiological signals

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
