The application of innovative circuits and systems to healthcare applications is experiencing remarkable growth worldwide. Examples include electronics for smart biosensors to detect or monitor the progress of various diseases, implantable neural prostheses to replace lost function due to neural damage, wireless brain-machine interfaces for neuroscience research and control of prosthetic devices, and new generation cardiovascular technology with real time monitoring capability. Advances in medical device technology have been shown to greatly improve the quality of life for people with conditions such as Parkinson's disease, diabetes, hearing loss, blindness and heart failure, to name a few. The purpose of this special issue is to report the cutting-edge development of circuits and systems which have the potential to enhance diagnosis and therapy.
