Lode Ergometry

Ergometry, from Greek “ergos” (=work) and “metry” (=to measure) is the measurement of standardized work or energy expenditure during physical activity or exercise, at standardized circumstances. It involves using specialized equipment and techniques to quantify various physiological parameters such as heart rate, oxygen consumption, and power output.

Ergometry is often used in clinical settings to assess an individual’s physical fitness, evaluate the effectiveness of exercise programs, or diagnose and monitor medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders, and metabolic disorders. It is also used in sports science and research to study the effects of exercise on the body and to develop training programs that optimize athletic performance. Ergometry can help physiologists understand the energy expenditure and energy cost of performing specific exercises. The data can then be used to build better, more efficient training programs and regimens.

Ergometric data can lead to teaching the body how to be more efficient during energy expenditure and how to use that energy for more powerful and efficient performance. As the science of ergometry evolves, practical applications are being discovered and used in new fields. Lode has all the needed competences to innovate and meet the changing requirements within the field of ergometry. Lode is an MDR certified organization with multi-disciplinary competences in-house, from movement science professionals to a dedicated R&D department and a manufacturing facility.

Lode ergometers and ergometry software are used in rehabilitation, sports medicine, imaging, cpet and pediatric medicine. For every application there is a specially composed bicycle ergometer, treadmill and / or ergometry software. Depending on the application and your specific wishes, your ergometer can be expanded with various options.
