The opportunities and challenges in broadening the applications of electronic devices in practical healthcare has increased in recent years. The everlasting pursuit of preferable human life propels the ceaseless advances of intelligent communities. In particular, the burgeoning concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionising the way we live our lives through active interaction with the smart network. The electrical, chemical, and mechanical activities that take place in the human body during any biological event, such as the beating of the heart and contraction of muscles, produce different biomedical signals. Sensors that can sense biosignals or biopotentials can be categorised as physical, electrical, or chemical depending on their specific applications. Recent progress in the design and fabrication of soft sensors with more advanced capabilities and enhanced reliability suggest an impending translation of these devices from the research lab to clinical environments. One of the major challenges with these kinds of wearable devices is on the device handling power.

The historically distinct markets of regulated medical devices and consumer health wearables are blending, driven by the advance of wearable technologies. However, it is crucial for researchers, academician, industry persons and product developers to have a complete review of those before initiating new research and attempting new product development in this and associated fields. This Special issue collects the state-of-the-art advances in design, construction, functionality, and application of such systems not been presented before.
