BMC Biomedical engineering is calling for submissions to our upcoming Collection, Medical wearable technologies.
Medical wearable technologies are becoming increasingly widespread as the importance of personalized medicine and accurate monitoring is recognized.
The last few years have seen unprecedented improvements in the accuracy of wearable devices. This in turn has led to increasing applications in the medical field as more and more equipment is designed to be operated by the end user, with advice from medical professionals. This improves usability, with some equipment being operated from the comfort of the patient’s home, without compromising accuracy. Preventive medicine also largely benefits from the use of these technologies.
This Collection welcomes submissions on the development, improvement, design and/or repurposing of medical wearable technologies.
In alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal SDG 3, which seeks to ensure health and well-being for all, this collection emphasizes the importance of improving healthcare accessibility and promoting well-being through technological advancements in the biomedical engineering domain.
