This Frontiers Research Topic focuses on new advances in the field of wearable technologies for assisting individuals with neuromuscular disorders. Technologies of interest include novel robotic systems, sensors, smart materials, and innovative methods to assist, rehabilitate or assess motor function impairments. Examples of topics that fit within the scope of this Research Topic are: upper extremity exoskeletons for stroke rehabilitation; lower extremity robotic systems for assisting individuals with spinal cord injury; wireless sensors to monitor falls in seniors; wearable sensing materials to detect biosignals for assisting with motor function recovery; novel portable devices to assess motor impairment; and artificial muscles and their use in the design of actively deformable garments.
This Frontiers Research Topic explicitly focuses on research proposing/using technologies that are both wearable and portable. Articles accepted in this Research Topic could either present innovative technological solutions validated via testing with healthy volunteers, or results of clinical studies enabled by recently developed technologies. Technologies for individuals with paralysis, muscle weakness, loss of sensation, or poor coordination resulting from stroke, spinal cord injury, tremor, Parkinson's disease, frailty (e.g. seniors) and other neurological disorders are of particular interest for this Research Topic.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
