Robotics in Biomedical and Healthcare Engineering

Description

The rapid progress of robotic technique provides new opportunities for the biomedical and healthcare engineering. For instance, micro-nano robot allows us to study the fundamental problems at cellular scale owing to its precise positioning and manipulation ability; the medical robot paves a new way for the low invasive and high efficient clinical operation; and rehabilitation robot is able to improve the rehabilitative efficacy of patients. Therefore, this special issue aims at exhibiting the latest research achievements, findings, and ideas in the field of robot in biomedical and healthcare engineering. Researchers are encouraged to submit papers based on analytical, computational, experimental, and clinical research; state-of-the-art reviews; and conceptual and theoretical developments and designs in the field of multiscale robotics in the biomedical and healthcare engineering.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Application of multiscale robots for biomedical and healthcare engineering
  • Novel design of biomedical, rehabilitation, and healthcare robots
  • Novel sensing techniques for biomedical, rehabilitation, and healthcare robots
  • Novel control systems for biomedical, rehabilitation, and healthcare robot
  • New concept, theoretical developments, and simulations for biomedical, rehabilitation, and healthcare robot
  • Other related robot techniques for biomedical and healthcare engineering
