Monitors, Physiologic, Physical Activity, Telemetric

Definition : Monitors designed for continuous measurement and display of the body movements (i.e., physical activity) and are taken from a distant location through a point-to-point radio or other appropriate communication link (i.e., telemetric). These monitors typically consist of a main unit attached to the patient (e.g., pocket, belt, wrist) which includes electronic circuits that can process signals from movement-sensing probes (e.g., pedometers, accelerometers), and transducers. The monitor also includes a receiver that is integral or associated to the central station where the information is displayed. Physical activity monitors are used to assess patients with certain conditions (e.g., cardiac or pulmonary disorders) or healthy people (e.g., athletes) during their daily activities and/or while performing exercise. They may be also used to record sleep and wakefulness (sleep/awake cycle) during normal patient activity.
