Introduction. The intensive development of medical science in the XX century required the development of fundamentally new approaches and methods for assessing body functions during free movements and various activities. This led to the emergence of dynamic biotelemetry via radio.

Objective. To study the main points of the dynamic biotelemetry formation, characterizing the role and contribution of individuals and groups.

Material and methods. The research are based on an evolutionary approach; methods of analysis, synthesis, systematization, as well as the problem-chronological method of historical knowledge are used.

Results. The first system of biotelemetry via radio proposed by A.A. Yushchenko and L.A. Chernavkin in 1932. The system has been successfully tested in experimental physiology. Comprehensive development of technologies and methodology of bioteleme- try was carried out in the 1960-1970s by group led by V.V. Rosenblat. A classic "triad" of research objectives was form. The “triad” became the methodological basis of scientific research in the field of biotelemetry. In the course of hundreds researches (carried out using biotelemetry) in the field of normal and pathological physiology, a huge amount of new information has been accumulated. Methods of dynamic biotelemetry of V.V. Rosenblat are widely distributed throughout the world.

Conclusions. Biotelemetry was very important for space exploration programs, physiological studies of athletes, as well as for occupational medicine. Thanks to this technology, new directions of knowledge have been form. Two key historical events that led to the development of biotelemetry happened in 1930-1932 and 1960-1970 years.
