Abstract : The tasks involved in the design and development of a multichannel physiological telemetry system which is intended for use on non-human subjects, but which may be used on humans if desired are discussed. The system is non-implantable and makes provision for the use of at least four test subjects on each of two receiving stations. The system is a time-shared, automatic/semi-AUTOMATIC SYSTEM WHICH DELIVERS TO THE INPUT OF A STRIP RECORDER OR ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER, A VARYING DIRECT CURRENT SIGNAL WHICH REPRESENTS THE PHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS OF TEMPERATURE, RESPIRATION, ELECTROCARDIOGRAM, ELECTROMYOGRAM AND ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM. Battery power supply is included in the subject-carried package, and is of the non-rechargeable, mercury cell type. (Author)
