Biomechatronics aims at integrating mechanical elements, electronics and parts of biological organisms (especially human beings). It focuses on the research and design of assistive, therapeutic and diagnostic devices to compensate for the loss of human physiological functions or enhance these functions. This interdisciplinary research may include prosthetics, exoskeletons, cyborgs, human-machine interface, and wearable systems.

In recent years, neural engineering and rehabilitation engineering demanded highly advanced biomechatronic systems for possible applications targeting disabled and elderly populations, such as stroke, Parkinson’s, spinal-cord-injury patients and amputees. Significant achievements were accomplished, while some key issues still need further and deeper investigation such as dexterous and multi-functional prosthesis, human-exoskeleton cooperative control, wearable devices with sensing and actuation, soft exo-suit for assisting motion, and bidirectional neural-machine interface.

We welcome papers from researchers for this Research Topic within the Neural Technology section of Frontiers in Neuroscience regarding the above topics to provide insightful solutions to the problems in biomechatronics, and present the recent breakthroughs.

The scope of the topics is broadly covered above but is not limited to, and we encourage potential researchers to submit their contributions on any related topics. A variety of articles will be considered: research papers, letters, reviews, commentaries, and case reports.


Keywords: Biomechatronics, prosthesis, exoskeletons, cyborgs, human-machine interface, wearable systems


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.
