Biomedical Sensors Special Issue

Sensing systems are well-established tools in clinical practice across a variety of medical applications, and yet there is increasing demand for new innovations to support rapidly evolving healthcare systems across the globe.

The aim of this Special Issue is to reflect on the latest developments in sensor systems that target medical applications and improvements in healthcare. We particularly invite contributions from interdisciplinary teams with clinical input to discuss development and translation of sensing technology towards clinical practice. This may encompass systems that enable improved clinical assessment, guide more effective intervention or support enhanced long-term condition monitoring.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • In vivo sensor systems (e.g., implanted devices);
  • Wearable sensor devices;
  • Sensors at the human-device interfaces (e.g., prosthetics);
  • Integration of sensing systems to inform clinical practice (e.g., Internet of Medical Things).

The team welcomes original research, case studies and reviews, please approach the Guest Editors if you would like to propose an article or discuss these topics beforehand. We look forward to your participation in this Special Issue.
