Lode is a socially and environmentally responsible company. All Lode products are RoHS/WEE compliant and Lode is ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 13485:2016 certified. All medical products comply to MDD 93/42/EEC, incl. IEC 60601-1.
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.
Various test modes
Besides the hyperbolic (rpm-independent) mode that is used most of the time, the standard control unit offers several other test modes, like the fixed torque mode and the linear mode.These modes can be used in both manual and terminal mode.
The ergometer can be used in various ergometry settings, enabling a multifunctional deployment.
Easy to clean
The design of the ergometer and the housing material make it very easy to clean.
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.
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.
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.
RS232 ports enable connectivity to most ECG and ergospirometry devices as well as PC’s.
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
This product can be used with Lode Cardiac Rehabilitation Manager software (LCRM)
Additional features with PCU
Besides the possibility to program 24 protocols easily, this control unit offers the following features:
– better monitoring because of the additional and larger display
– a perfect combination with BPM
– possibility to measure SpO2
Various interface protocols guarantee perfect communication with all commonly known stress ECG and spirometry equipment

Frequently asked questions
Is it possible to request RPM and Load data through the RS232 port while cycling in Manual mode.
Yes you can request the actual pedalling speed and power when you are cycling in Manual, Analogue or Terminal mode.
The load will only be returned when the pedalling speed is 30 RPM or more. For technical details see the Lode RS232 protocol
To which size instrument rail can an Angio with fixation set be fixed?
The typical size for an instrument rail is 25 * 10 mm. The fixation set will fit that size.
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.
Can I loop Lode rehab products easily?
Yes! It is very easy to create a comfortable rehab setting with Lode rehab products by looping the ergometers:
The first Lode rehab ergometer can be connected to the PC with LCRM with a Lode proprietary network to PC cable (#930930).
The second product up till the last product can be connected to the previous one, a bus network configuration.
The last product always needs a termination plug to avoid interference and loss of data. All Lode rehab products come standard with such a termination plug.
– Flawless data connection
– High bandwidth
– No interference of COM ports
– Full access of all data in the product to LCRM
