Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite contributions to a Special Issue of Bioengineering focused on the design, prototyping, manufacturing, and experimentation of medical devices and implants. Considering the increased demand for these devices and thus increased healthcare costs, the clinical deployment of these solutions results in many challenges that need to be overcome. The regulatory compliance, absence of standardized testing procedures, manufacturability, and efficacy of these devices are examples of issues that need to be addressed to launch or maintain a product on the market with satisfactory clinical results. Embedded artificial intelligence in diagnostic tools, big-data-driven design processes, wireless communications for real-time monitoring, and finite element modeling for verification and validation are all examples of novel but now well-established technologies that have positively impacted product development. Further, the widespread use of additive manufacturing has boosted patient-specific design and implant development. More recently, bioprinting has been used in medicine to help to study or recreate almost every tissue, cartilage, and organ in the body. The translational role of these solutions is often overlooked, and they are not well covered in clinical journals. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to collect studies performed on medical devices and implants, strictly related to their development, prototyping, efficacy, and safety. Discussions and critical analyses of existing testing methods and standards are welcome, as are original studies on new concepts. We look forward to receiving your groundbreaking contributions.

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.
