The current trend of miniaturization of integrated circuits has led to an expansion in the number of electronic devices aimed at on-body personalized health monitoring. While these devices continue to diminish in size and grow in computational power, there is a growing need to tailor the mechanical properties of the device, sensor design, and signal processing for wearable sensing. Flexibility and conformability of the device are needed for an interference-free application, which will enable long-term use and be easily concealed for user privacy. Corresponding sensor design needs to match the application site, draw low power, and achieve physiologically relevant sensitivity. Additional algorithms are needed to address persistent motion and environmental artifacts for resilient and high-quality data. Proper design is needed to propel wearable sensing beyond an electronic trinket and toward clinical-grade health monitoring tools.
In this Special Issue of Biosensors, we invite original research articles to explore and demonstrate novel development of sensors for diagnostics health monitoring in a wearable package.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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. Biosensors 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 1800 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.
