Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of this course is to acquaint students with possibilities, methods and technologies for realization of telemetric measurements of biological parameters and to acquaint them with applications of telemetry in field of biomedical engineering.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


The biotelemetry lessons are meanly intended for students of bachelor study branch of biomedical technology or engineering, but it can be attended by other students of electrical engineering bachelor and master study branches. In the course of biotelemetry students can learn about possibilities and methods for (biomedical) data transmission for different purposes, distances with different technologies. The course is designed practically as much as it is possible. Most of presented themes are verified by students in practical measurements. These measurements are similar to real today’s applications of biotelemetry. It is recommended to attend this course in higher years of bachelor study. Biotelemetry is concerned with transmission of quantity from the source into the distance where analysis, display is done. In medical science the transmission of electrical signal is meant where the information about the measured quantity is somehow encoded. The Telemedicine is an inseparable element, where the medical signal could be voice, verbal and especially visual for the distance between a doctor and patient or between the single medical workplaces.
