Health at Home – This issue discussed how the home itself can become the center of health through various technological advances and innovations.
Sensors – The focus was also on how sensor-based technologies are developing the field, eg: molecular diagnostic test, daily wearables eg: sweat sensor for athletes, algorithm-based applications, etc.
