Major trends in mobility technology

Edited by: Brian Caulfield and Silvestro Micera

An article collection in Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation

This thematic series summarizes the findings of a group of scientists that visited a number of research institutions in Europe to provide the National Science Foundation with a report of the state of the art in mobility technology for individuals with disabilities. The manuscripts span a broad spectrum of research topics from rehabilitation robotics to wearable technology. This collection of articles shows that a great deal of effort is undergoing toward the development of mobility technology for individuals with disabilities.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal's standard peer-review process overseen by the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors. The Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors declare no competing interests.
