A ‘super-team’ of Lab on a Chip authors (10.1039/c7lc00914c) recently wrote, “Wearable sensing technology has recently and rapidly moved from largely a vision of science fiction to a wide array of established consumer and medical products. This explosion of wearable sensors can be attributed to several factors, such as affordability and ergonomics provided by advances in miniaturized electronics, the proliferation of smart-phones and connected devices, a growing consumer desire for health awareness, and the unmet need for doctors to continuously obtain medical quality data from their patients.”

Following this, we at Lab on a Chip have been inspired to create an Editors’ Choice collection highlighting some of our favourite recent papers in the area and to also seek more contributions in this area. The collection will feature a series of papers that address aspects of the issues involved in creating wearable or implantable sensors and their applications for diagnostics, medicine and therapeutics, health awareness and other novel applications.

Below is a selection of content highlights featured in the collection so far. In addition, all papers are free to read until 31st October 2019*.
