AbstractBiomedical telemetry has yet to fulfill the high promise generated by its first significant use ten years ago. Most of the progress has been in research biotelemetry; in the monitoring of animal physiology and behavior to gain new insight into both the normal and pathological state. Many clinical applications have developed but few, with the notable exceptions of telephone telemetry systems in cardiology and the monitoring of astronauts, have achieved wide acceptance. The nub of the problem has been the bias in equipment design and system orientation towards research criteria. There is a compelling need and opportunity for telemetric systems specifically designed for clinical, or on-the-spot, use.
