About this Research Topic
Our goal in this Frontiers Research Topic is to develop examples of designing and developing body-centric technologies to better support one’s health and wellbeing, from a both instrumental and experiential perspective. We also hope to develop new approaches of body-centric computing and expand the boundaries of the field by exploring the topic from a multiple disciplinary perspective.
We welcome researchers to contribute their original papers, as well as a variety of article types, including extended versions of conference papers that contain at least 30% significant new content, , as per our Guidelines/a>
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Biosensors for health tracking
- Wearable/implantable/ingestible sensing for health and wellbeing
- Mobile health monitoring
- AI for health and wellbeing
- Body-centric interactions for health and wellbeing
- Body-centric games/play;
- Health behavior intervention;
- VR/AR applications for health and wellbeing;
- User studies for digital health;
- Methods for body-centric computing;
- Ethics of body-centric technologies in the context of digital health.
