Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, a great advancement in robotic rehabilitation technology has been seen. The increasing use of such devices in this field has fueled significant developments in engineering and research towards the design of exoskeletons and end effectors. The current trend sees a growing creation of systems that facilitate training methods centered around task-oriented exercises. These efforts are specifically focused on assistive and rehabilitative robotics, with wide potential rehabilitation capabilities for patients. As of today, robotic rehabilitation is embracing adjacent disciplines, such as the incorporation of virtual reality, neuroimaging, brain–computer interfaces, artificial intelligence. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect more recent research in rehabilitation robotics, in terms of devices and methodologies, comprehensively covering the novel aspects of integration with other technologies.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
