Lode Ergometers Overview

Lode Overview:

Lode Ergometers are a cycle ergometer that accurately and repeatably creates a workload for a wide variety of exercise tests. The workload and/or cycle speed can be adjusted to accommodate almost any subject and test condition for clinical and research use.

Lode Ergometers are known worldwide for their accuracy and reliability. The Lode Excalibur Sport is the Gold Standard in Ergometry and is available with Wingate Test option. A Programmable Controller is included with both the Corival and Excalibur Sport Ergometers for independent control and operation.

With proven accuracy and reliability, the Excalibur sport is renowned worldwide as “the gold standard in ergometry”. The newly designed and improved Excalibur sport ergometer meets the latest requirements of modern sports medicine and research. Since athletes are becoming more and more powerful and testing more advanced than ever, this ergometer has been developed for extreme workloads up to 2500 watt! The new design ensures maximum stability at these high workloads. Thanks to the increased adjustability, versatile positioning of the test subject has never been better! The function of this product can be enhanced by using it in combination with our Lode Ergometry Manager software.
Extreme workload range of 8 – 2500 watt
The extraordinary workload range of 8-2500 watt is unique in the world! It makes this ergometer extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes in the world on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity.
Read out of seating position
The Excalibur Sport has a unique read-out of the seating position on the display of the Control Unit. The display shows saddle height & angle, handlebar position vertical & height.
Heavy Duty Design
The Excalibur Sport is designed for heavy duty sports medicine ergometry, without doing any concession on the esthetic, modern and robust design. In other words: Excalibur Sport: the gold standard in Ergometry!
Reliable and reproducible stress tests
The experience of professionals who calibrate many ergometers showed that the Lode ergometers are the most reliable across the complete workload and rpm range and still within specifications even after many years of intensive use.
Q-factor equal to road-bike
The Q-factor of the ergometer is equal to the Q-factor of road bikes, creating perfect training circumstances.
Extreme low start up load
The extreme low start-up load of 7 watts and the adjustability in small steps of 1 watt make this ergometer perfectly suitable for many different applications. The standard control unit shows multiple ergometry parameters and you can determine your specific default setting and start-up menu.
Small adjustment steps
The workload of the Lode ergometers is adjustable in steps of only 1 watt. Depending on your wishes, the test operator or the test subject can adjust the workload. The steps of 1 watt are possible in the manual mode as well as within protocols.
Adjustable handlebar Excalibur Sport
The position of the handlebar of Excalibur Sport is completely adjustable in height and length
Instant maximum load
By selecting P-slope max the ergometer immediately reaches maximum power
Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices
The Lode ergometers have both analog and digital interfaces and can be controlled easily by all known stress ECG and pulmonary devices available in the world. This is one of the reasons why the Lode ergometers are very popular worldwide
Accurate over a long period of time
The Lode ergometers are supplied with an electro-magnetic braking mechanism of Lanooy (eddy current). The biggest advantage of this braking system compared to a friction braking system is the absolute accuracy and the accuracy over time. Moreover, friction braking systems have more wearing parts
Compatible with click pedals
The bicycle ergometer is compatible with most available clickpedals to allow for maximum user flexibility
Adjustable saddle Excalibur Sport
The position of the saddle of the excalibur sport can be adjusted in height, length and angle to suit all users
LEM compatible
This product can be used with Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) software to manage data and to apply specific protocols when a Communication card or Network card is present
Designed to be sweat-proof
The housing of the ergometer is designed in such way that sweat does not have the chance to drip into the mechanical parts. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction
