Special Topic Issue: Digital Health

Advances in technology constantly change and impact our lives and society. With recent advances in digital health technologies, this is particularly true in healthcare and related research. Digital health is a broad term, which encompasses telehealth, mobile health, and body worn sensors used for remote monitoring. The application and research of digital health technologies has been stimulated by the COVID-19 pandemic as both researchers and providers have adapted to the constraints imposed by the pandemic. This JNPT special topic issue will feature original research on the application of digital health technologies in the assessment and rehabilitation of individuals with neurological health conditions. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Development and use of technologies for remote measurement of clinical outcomes 
  • Development and use of technologies for monitoring of activities and participation in the home and community.
  • Telehealth applications.
  • Mobile health applications to facilitate behavioral change (e.g. to promote health and wellness).
  • Development and use of sensor technologies as a part of clinical tests.

JNPT receives more submissions than can be published and it therefore will not be possible to publish all manuscripts submitted in response to this call.
