Call: Advanced User Interfaces for Neurorehabilitation – Special issue of BioMed Research International

Call for Papers:
Advanced User Interfaces for Neurorehabilitation
Special issue of BioMed Research International
(formerly titled Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology)

A range of virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR) based systems have been developed as novel and relevant tools in neurorehabilitation, allowing the implementation and exploration of rehabilitation treatment tools to complement and improve upon traditional methods.

In this special issue both medical and engineering aspects of these tools will be addressed in order to explore which type of solutions or research trends are currently active in this field and can support and/or extend current clinical and home-based rehabilitation practices.

Original papers presenting development studies and evidence for the effectiveness of technologies, devices, specific applications, and treatment methodologies will be in the scope of this special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in rehabilitation technology
  • Advances in user interfaces and tracking devices for motor skills tracking
  • Virtual and augmented reality based rehabilitation and telerehabilitation
  • Large scale clinical trials using virtual rehabilitation
  • Assessment of new technology based therapies and related medical evaluation scales
  • Home based solutions for neurorehabilitation
  • Identification and discussion of challenges and objectives for integration of technologies into existing health system structures
