Bioelectronics in medicine and specifically electrode technology is both mired in history and considered one of the most exciting areas of advancement for the future of implantable devices. Bioelectronics are being developed to treat a wide variety of sensory, muscular and autonomic disorders. Of particular interest is the interface where devices communicate with excitable tissues. This Special Topic will explore the cutting edge of bioelectronic technologies that are designed to interface with the soft and motile tissues of the body, improving charge transfer and enabling higher electrode counts. Authors are encouraged to not only present materials design and approach for addressing the therapeutic challenge, but also the path to translation in a clinical setting.
