More on impact ›
Biomedical Robotics is devoted to publishing leading-edge research that investigates the science and technology of robotic and mechatronic systems and their applications in medicine and biology.
The section aims to publish innovative solutions for healthcare and improvements to the overall quality of life as well as the analysis of biological applications including:
· medical and surgical robotics,
· rehabilitation robotics and assistive technologies,
· surgical planning tools,
· assistive medical imaging and diagnostic systems,
· technology for assisted surgery and diagnosis,
· prostethic and orthotic devices,
· haptics and wearable devices,
· ethical and social issues impacting biomedical robotics,
· biological systems modelling,
· biologically-inspired robots and systems,
· human-machine interaction in biomedical robotics.
This section aims to foster a community that encompasses researchers, and engineers, medical practitioners and computer scientists developing robotic systems and computational tools with the intention of promoting and developing these exciting areas of biomedical technology.

Biomedical Robotics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Biomedical Robotics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Biomedical Robotics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Robotics and AI.
