  • Call for papers: Applied Bionics and Biomechanics special issue on rehab robots

    Advances in Rehabilitation and Assistive Robots for Restoring Limb Function in Persons with Movement Disorders

    Call for Papers

    Rehabilitation and assistive robots play an important role in restoring limb functions and improving the quality of life in persons with movement disorders such as after stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and limb loss. Recently, rehabilitation and assistive robots have been significantly advanced primarily due to the advances in actuators, sensors, microprocessors, and mobile software platforms. Successful development and implementation of rehabilitation and assistive robots would rely largely on a team consisting of both engineers and clinicians, as well as a thorough understanding of the human-machine interaction.
    This special issue aims to gather the latest achievements in rehabilitation robots, exoskeletons, and prostheses. We solicit both original research and review articles that have not been submitted or accepted in other journals.
    Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
    • [*=left]Development of rehabilitation robots, exoskeleton, and upper/lower limb prostheses driven by bionics
      [*=left]Functional evaluation of rehabilitation robots, exoskeleton, and upper/lower limb prostheses with an emphasis on human movement biomechanics
      [*=left]Musculoskeletal modeling and simulation of human movements wearing exoskeleton or prostheses
      [*=left]Noninvasive human-machine interface based on electromyography and/or electroencephalogram
      [*=left]Sensors for monitoring kinematics/kinetics, as well as biological signals in real time
      [*=left]Innovative actuators, control algorithms applied to rehabilitation robots, exoskeletons, and prostheses

    Authors can submit their manuscripts via the Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/abb/aarr/.
    Manuscript Due Friday, 15 January 2016
    First Round of Reviews Friday, 8 April 2016
    Publication Date Friday, 3 June 2016
