Telehaptics basically refers to the sense of tactile touch (pressure in the most part), transferred over long distances between physically separated humans or animals, allowing touching, caressing, and other such sensory feedback, without parties being physically present with one another.

Telehaptics sometimes includes other sensory data, repackaged as touch: the breathing rate of a patient, heartbeat, or even a map of brain activity may be transmitted as pressure patterns upon the skin of the health practitioner, or researcher, so they can feel exactly how the patient is coping, in the most literal sense.
