Medical Internet of Things (IoT) Devices

This issue is now closed for submissions.


The last decade has seen an increase in research on the development of devices and instruments that can be operated using the internet. Such devices are regarded as the internet of things (IoT) devices. The IoT devices have been employed not only in smart cities, process systems, manufacturing, and law enforcement but also in the field of healthcare systems.

The application of IoT devices in the field of healthcare is regarded as medical IoT. Of late, medical IoT has evolved as a separate field of study in itself. The use of medical IoT devices has brought a significant transformation in the way healthcare systems work. It has not only allowed interaction of physicians with patients staying at remote locations, sharing of patient records to physicians staying at remote locations, and conducting surgeries from remote locations, but has also aided in designing rehabilitation devices for patients with diseases or disabilities.

This Special Issue will publish research and review articles on the fundamental and applied research aspects of medical IoT devices with an emphasis on the applications in disease and health.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • IoT-enabled biosensors
  • Wound healing monitoring systems
  • IoT based disease monitoring systems
  • Internet of nano-things healthcare applications
  • Wearable IoT sensors for healthcare applications
  • Degradable IoT sensors for healthcare applications
  • IoT in medical implant manufacturing
  • IoT in rehabilitation devices
  • IoT-enabled medical robotics
  • IoT in genomics
  • IoT devices in pharmaceutical industries
