 [tĕ-lem´ĕ-tre]
the making of measurements at a distance from the subject; usually the measurable evidence of phenomena under investigation is transmitted by radio signals.

te·lem·e·try

(tĕ-lem'ĕ-trē),
The science of measuring a quantity, transmitting the results by radio signals to a distant station, and there interpreting, indicating, and/or recording the results.

telemetry

Measurement at a distance by radio waves or other means. The method has been used in medical research and diagnosis.

telemetry

literally 'measurement at a distance'. Achieved by portable radio transmitter sending data measured from the subject to the observer's receiver. In exercise physiology, these data invariably include heart rate (HR); more sophisticated (but bulkier) equipment will also report other values, e.g. oxygen consumption.
