How it started at Lode
It all began with bicycle ergometry when Freerk Lode crafted the inaugural electro-magnetic bicycle ergometer in 1952. From those early days, precision, dependability, and resilience have remained the cornerstone for advancing innovations. Originating in the realms of cardiology and pulmonary function, Lode BV has transformed into a specialist encompassing the entire spectrum of medical ergometry. Over the years, Lode’s evolution has expanded beyond just bicycle ergometers, now embracing arm ergometers, recumbent ergometers, reclining ergometers, and even wheelchair ergometers.
Types of bicycle ergometers at Lode
Lode offers a diverse range of bicycle ergometers to meet various needs. In the rehabilitation segment, we provide the Corival Rehab. For cardio-pulmonary applications, we offer both the Corival CPET and Angio CPET. In the Sport Medicine segment, our offerings include the Excalibur Sport and the Excalibur Sport with PFM. Notably, we also cater to pediatric needs with the Corival Pediatric, specifically designed for children.

Patients with flow-limitations in the iliac arteries (FLIA) complain from pain and powerlessness during maximal exercise. As such, we used the Lode Excalibur sport with pedal power measurement possibility to diagnose one-sided FLIA. We recently started a new research to look at individual power patterns to possibly identify FLIA in patients with complaints in both sides. Our goal is to detect sport-related vascular problems in athletes using pedal power measurements.
