Abstract: The article presents the main technological aspects of systems of telemonitoring of biomedical parameters, based on the example of research carried out in the Łukasiewicz Research Network — Institute of Medical Technology and Equipment, Zabrze. Medical telemonitoring covers technologies for the acquisition, processing and analysis of biomedical information. Data sources and technologies for obtaining biomedical information are an important element of medical telemonitoring. Medical telemonitoring systems are one of the main elements of telemedicine or telehealth. Telemonitoring of vital biomedical parameters is mainly used to perform remote diagnostics and medical rehabilitation. This applies primarily to patients from the so-called “high risk” groups, who are treated or rehabilitated outside hospitals. An important area for the application of medical telemonitoring is the safety of people working under extreme or stressful conditions. Telemonitoring of vital parameters can also be used to increase the safety of those who engage in physical activity for health promotion, sports and performance.
