Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last decade has witnessed the research and development of smart wearable sensors and systems for health monitoring. Micro and nanotechnologies have allowed miniaturization of sensors, and smart fabrics made possible the installation of sensing devices and systems with minimal intrusion for continuous monitoring of peoples’ health, activity, mobility, and mental status, both indoors and outdoors. Smart wearable solutions for healthcare monitoring include not only hardware (sensors, actuators, multimedia devices, etc.) but also applications for data acquisition, processing, transmission and presentation and applications for real-time decision support, for disease prevention, symptom detection, and diagnosis.

The Special Issue will cover advances in smart wearable sensing technologies and systems with application in health monitoring. Contributions that address but are not restricted to the following topics are welcome:

  • Body sensor network wearables;
  • Electrical stimulation wearables;
  • Smart implantable devices;
  • IoT wearable devices;
  • Medicine skin patches;
  • Smart wearable devices in cardiovascular care;
  • Personal area network wearables;
  • Smart wearable technologies for physical rehabilitation;
  • Electronic textiles and wearable technologies;
  • Wearable flexible sensors;
  • Socio-economic and wearables;
  • Telemedicine and wearables;
  • User acceptance of wearable health monitoring devices;
  • Needs and barriers of smart wearables adoption.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
