The worlds highest load accurate arm ergometer

Since 2011, the Brachumera Sport has established itself as the Gold Standard in Arm Ergometry due to its unbeatable accuracy and reliability. However, with the ever-evolving world of technology, we’re proud to introduce the new and improved Lode Brachumera Sport. True to its roots but this updated model meets the latest and future demands of sports medicine and research. With smarter use of human performance technology, athletes can now become stronger and better than ever before.

Versatile ergometer

The new Lode Brachumera Sport arm-ergometer is a versatile tool for any sports medicine or research lab. It allows for a range of tests, including Wingate sprint tests, Isokinetic tests, High-Intensity Tests (HIT), time trials, and CPET testing. Additionally, the ergometer features built-in modified strain gauge technology that measures the forces exerted on the pedals during exercise, with angle detection and the ability to measure independent forces in both left and right cranks. The Pedal Force Measurement (or PFM) measured forces are wirelessly transmitted to a PC.

Integration with LEM

The standard integration of Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) with the Brachumera Sport with Pedal Force Measurement can revolutionize athletes’ training experiences. By combining the precision and data management capabilities of LEM with the targeted upper-body training features of the Brachumera, athletes gain a comprehensive solution for monitoring and optimizing their performance. LEM’s advanced analytics can provide real-time feedback on power output, endurance levels, and muscle engagement during Brachumera workouts. Athletes and trainers can leverage this integrated system to tailor training programs, track progress, and make data-driven adjustments, fostering more effective and personalized training regimens. This synergy between Lode Ergometry Manager and Brachumera not only enhances the training process but also contributes to a more complete approach to athletic development.

Why the Brachumera sport with Pedal Force Measurement

Extreme workload range of 10 - 3000 watt

This extraordinary peak workload is extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity. Combined with the low start workload of 10 Watt this ergometer will fit everybody.

Suitable for all types of tests

Multiple tests can be performed with the Brachumera Sport for your clients as a (sport)medical professional such as; wingate, isokinetic, high-intensity, time trials and cardiopulmonary excercise testing.

Pedal Force Measurement

Equipped with modified strain gauge technology, the Brachumera Sport measures the forces exerted on the pedals during exercise with angle detection. This technology allows for independent measurements of forces in both left and right cranks, ensuring precise and accurate readings.

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.

Features

Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices

The Lode ergometers have 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.

Customer specific display setting

Display settings are adjustable according to your specific requirements: each individual has its specific wishes about the parameters to be displayed. This can easily be adjusted with the Lode ergometers.

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 and cables are protected. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction.

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 is present.

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.

High peak workload

This extraordinary peak workload of 3000 Watt is extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity. Combined with the low start workload of 10 Watt this ergometer will fit everybody.

Frequently asked questions

Which languages are present in the North and South version of firmware for Corival, Angio, Brachumera and Excalibur?

North: English, Dutch, German, Finnish

South: English, Spanish, Italian, French

Can I change the contrast of the display on my Lode bicycle ergometer?

Your Lode ergometer is standard supplied with one display. The contrast of this display is factory set and can adjusted by qualified service personal only. If your ergometer is supplied with a programmable option the contrast of this display can be set as follows: go to SYSTEM PARAMETERS select SETTINGS go to CONTRAST. Change the visability according your wishes and save the changes.

Can the contrast of a single display bicycle ergometer be changed?

Yes, on the backside of the display there is a potentiometer. To have access to this potentiometer you have to remove the upper part of the control unit by removing the screws on the bottom side of the controlunit. ( see service manual for instructions) now you can access the potentiometer and adjust it according you wishes.

Can I mount Brachumera Sport to the wall.

Yes you can. There is even an accessory available that allows for easy height adjustment and an electric chair to adjust seating position.

Can I use a RS232 to USB converter to connect an ergometer?

Yes you can. Make sure the chipset used in the converter is from FTDI to have good data acquisition.
Not sure what this means? Contact us and we will help you to get the right converter.

Is Lode recommending special disinfection procedures for the Lode products due to COVID-19?

Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.
