AbstractThe applicability of telemetering devices in patient care and biomedical research is extended by the introduction of infrared (IR) light communication techniques. Research in this field demonstrated a particularly interesting potential for a multichannel/multipatient monitoring system comprising stimulation, remote control of physiological functions or drug delivery, and patient location. Compared to radiofrequency links IR-telemetry features distinct advantages, i.e. a wide transmission bandwidth which is not restricted by any government regulations, no interference with identical systems in adjacent rooms, no connector or antenna problems, and a cost-saving simple generation and detection of IRcarriers. Examples of recent laboratory and industrial developments are described.
