Telemetering of biomedical data from unrestrained subjects requires a system to be compact, reliable and efficient. A survey of the existing multi-channel biomedical telemetry showed that most of the systems employ analogue or uncoded (digital) techniques of encoding biomedical signals. These techniques are less reliable, employ wider bandwidth and are difficult to implement compared to the coded (digital) techniques of modulation. A theoretical study of the coded techniques of modulation for encoding biomedical signals showed-that pulse code modulation, though more efficient, calls for extensive circuitry and makes it expensive and difficult to implement. Delta modulation and delta sigma modulation were found to be simpler, easier to implement and efficient.
