Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the utilization of virtual reality, robotics, health wearables, and telemedicine has become more common in science and clinical practice. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, all forms of remote support have become useful and sometimes even indispensable in general medicine. This situation did not differ between physical and psychosocial rehabilitation. Remote support can cover a wide spectrum of technologies, from simple telephone consultations, through very popular videoconferences, to advanced videoconferencing with integrated wearable sensors and feedback, which allows interaction with the patient in real time. Virtual reality (VR), another new technology, has become a subject of interest for researchers worldwide. VR can cover a wide spectrum of technologies, starting from simple feedback using a monitor, through the popular head-mounted display (VR goggle), to advanced EMG-based robotic devices that can be integrated within the VR environment. So personalized treatment and management are also increasingly important.

However, owing to its novelty, these topics still need to be explored. There are still areas that are uncovered, while others require further work and systematization. Therefore, we propose this Special Issue as a contribution to the technology-supported field. Submissions are welcome for the following article types: original research, and reviews. We welcome the submission of manuscripts, including but not limited to the following topics.

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. Journal of Personalized Medicine 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 2600 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.
