Call For Papers
Technology and Health Care is intended to serve as a forum for the presentation of original articles and technical notes, observing rigorous scientific standards. Furthermore, upon invitation, reviews, tutorials, discussion papers and minisymposia are featured. The main focus of THC is related to the overlapping areas of engineering and medicine. The following types of contributions are considered:

    Original articles: New concepts, procedures and devices associated with the use of technology in medical research and clinical practice are presented to a readership with a widespread background in engineering and/or medicine. In particular, the clinical benefit deriving from the application of engineering methods and devices in clinical medicine should be demonstrated. Typically, full length original contributions have a length of 4000 words, thereby taking duly into account figures and tables.
    Technical Notes and Short Communications: Technical Notes relate to novel technical developments with relevance for clinical medicine. In Short Communications, clinical applications are shortly described. Both Technical Notes and Short Communications typically have a length of 1500 words.
    Reviews and Tutorials (upon invitation only): Tutorial and educational articles for persons with a primarily medical background on principles of engineering with particular significance for biomedical applications and vice versa are presented. The Editorial Board is responsible for the selection of topics.
    Minisymposia (upon invitation only): Under the leadership of a Special Editor, controversial or important issues relating to health care are highlighted and discussed by various authors.
    Letters to the Editors: Discussions or short statements (not indexed).

Specific topics relating to medical and biological engineering within the journal’s scope are:

    Bioelectronics, clinical biomechanics, biophotonics
    Medical imaging technology, bio-imaging
    Surgical technology
    Monitoring devices, respiration technology, drug delivery systems
    Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures associated with Ionizing and non-ionizing radiation
    Artificial organs, biomaterials
    Tissue engineering, bio-inspired materials, molecular and cellular methods
    Devices and instruments for use in rehabilitation
    Telemedicine, e-health and mobile phone techniques for use in clinical medicine
    Home care technology

Note: In consideration of the rapid development of medical IT, the description of computer programs, in particular of AI and machine learning procedures, exhibiting screen shots, explicit computer code, etc. is not accepted for publication because of imminent obsoleteness. Likewise, for the same reason, computer-based image or biological signal analysis procedures without demonstration of long-lasting clinical relevance are not suited for publication. Furthermore, the presentation of surveys and questionnaire projects, often with local participation only, is not in agreement with the aims & scope of the journal.
