Katana Sport

Introducing the Katana Sport: an advanced and dependable treadmill tailored for the determined medical professional. This treadmill is designed to seamlessly integrate with external ECG and pulmonary devices, enhancing its versatility and utility within medical and professional sport settings.

The Katana Sport sets the standard for smooth acceleration, giving a natural running experience and offers continuous adjustability across a broad range, from 0.5 to 30 km/h (upgradable to 40 km/h), and the possibility of an upgrade to 40 km/h. With a spacious running surface measuring 190 x 70 cm and an elevation range of 0 to 25%, this treadmill is expertly tailored to meet the demands of sports medicine applications. Setting benchmarks in smooth acceleration and giving a natural running experience, the Katana Sport also introduces an XL variant with a running surface of 220 x 70 cm.

The belt extends seamlessly to the end, providing athletes with an unrestricted running experience. For added safety, there’s an emergency stop feature located at the back of the Katana, automatically stopping the belt when the athlete falls to far back on the belt.

Equipped with a 7″ Control Unit featuring a user-friendly touchscreen interface and steadfast fixed side handrails, the Katana Sport prioritizes both ease of use and patient safety. Its distinctive Lode Slat Belt Technology boasts 106 soft grip-covered slats, ensuring an exceptional high-speed experience while maintaining a natural walking and running feel.

What sets the Katana Sport apart is its innovative bearing technology, enabling high speeds to be achieved with low maintenance requirements. To maximize its capabilities, the treadmill seamlessly interfaces with our Lode Ergometry Manager software, further enhancing its functionality and data analysis potential and flexibility and control for preparing and executing a variety of tests and trainings.

Why the Katana Sport?

Unique Walking Experience

The slat-belt technology provides a unique walking experience which approaches the feeling of running on a track.

Smooth acceleration

All treadmills have a smooth acceleration from 0 km/h to the start speed.

Standard max speed of 30 km/h

The standard maximum speed of the treadmill is 30 km/h

Shock absorbing design

The design guarantees shock absorption with preservation of the natural walking feeling.

Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices

The treadmill can be controlled by all external stress test ECG and ergospirometry devices through the RS232 or USB port. This is possible because besides the programmed Lode protocol, all known communication protocols are programmed as well.

Product features

Service friendly slat treadmill

Lode slat treadmills are almost maintenance free. Because of the unique slat technology no bearing-greasing is required. The only annual maintenance that has to be done is checking the running and electrical parts and the velocity calibration of the treadmill.

Downhill walking as an option (-25%)

This treadmill can be executed with 25% negative elevation. This allows for downhill walking which is extremely useful for rehabilitation of certain injuries.

Application specific motor design

Specific motor winding, enabling high current throughput over full motor frequency range, resulting in high torque at low belt speeds and maximum power at high belt speeds.

Closed loop motor control

This way of motor control enables:

  • Full brake at zero speed.
  • Rigid speed control at all speeds, typically at interest when using steep angles, low speeds and/or high Test Subject weight.
  • Load independent speed
  • Angle independent speed

Fully software controlled electronic fans

The electronic fans in the motor compartment are fully software controlled for low noise at low belt speeds and independent forced air cooling of the motor for maximum power output at high belt speeds.

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

Standard Safety Lanyard

The product comes with a standard safety lanyard to enable automatic emergency stop.

Tailoring the Katana Sport to your needs

Enhancing the Katana Sport treadmill’s versatility, healthcare professionals can now finely customize training and testing strategies to suit the unique needs of each athlete and test subject, thanks to an array of supplementary features. Here are some of the key enhancements:

Safety belt and fall stop: Safety remains a top priority in medical contexts. The safety belt and fall stop add-on provides a critical safeguard for the Katana Sport treadmill.  The safety harness can be attached to a safety belt and fall stop that prevents the test subject from falling on the belt. This option is mounted on the side handrails of the treadmill and allowing them to push their limits without fear. The athlete or test subject will be caught in the event of a balance loss or misstep. This system quickly stops the treadmill motion.

Speed upgrade to 40 km/h: Selecting this option increases the maximum speed to 40 km/h, expanding its capabilities for high-performance training and assessments.

Negative elevation: The inclusion of negative elevation introduces a dynamic dimension to the treadmill, simulating downhill training to a maximum of -25%. This feature benefits athletes recovering from injuries or the prevention for injuries by providing controlled exposure to diverse slopes, enhancing the rehabilitation process.

Autospeed: The autospeed feature smartly adapts the treadmill pace according to the patient’s position on the belt. It slows down when you fall behind and speeds up when you’re at the front of the belt. This frees the medical professionals from continuous manual adjustments, allowing them to focus on monitoring and evaluating athletes in how far or quick they can come within a certain timeframe.

Sp02 monitoring and external blood pressure: Real-time monitoring of blood pressure and Sp02 levels during exercise offers valuable insights into cardiovascular responses, aiding well-informed decisions by medical professionals.

Remote control: The remote control add-on empowers medical experts to make treadmill adjustments without having to touch the display and therefore they can stay on the side of the treadmill.

Incorporating these add-ons elevates the Katana Sport treadmill into an exceptionally adaptable device!
