Wearable computing - body-borne computational and sensory devices - include those with specific feature sets (such as heart rate monitors and pedometers) to those with a variety of advanced smart functions and features.

There remain many research challenges in wearable computing - robustness, reliability, walkability, and manufacturing of sensors and materials - along with those of data aggregation and transmission, signal processing and energy harvesting.

New applications are driving innovation - blending wearable computing with the internet of things, distributed computing, mobile internet, big data processing - offers new challenges and possibilities.

Against this background, advances in telecommunications, microelectronics, sensor manufacturing, and data analysis techniques have opened up new possibilities for using wearable technology in digital health.

Aiming to improve health outcomes, wearable technology products use multiple digital health sensors that are typically integrated into sensor networks comprising other body-worn sensors and ambient sensors.

Some monitoring systems require the data to be uploaded to a remote site such as a hospital server for further clinical analysis. With the advent of cloud computing, many wearable sensor systems can now be easily upgraded without the need for user installation of software in their monitoring devices, which makes it easier and cheaper to maintain health monitoring system networks.

Themes

This issue looks at recent trends, challenges, and applications in communication technologies for wearable computing and smart textiles in adaptive healthcare.

Papers submitted to this issue should explore state-of-art research issues, architectures and applications in wearable computing for adaptive healthcare and include, but are not limited to:
