Shanghai University of Sport – Valiant 2 Sport

2023

This treadmill has practical functions with high safety and is suitable for a wide range of subjects.

The Lode Valiant 2 Sport treadmill has practical functions with high safety!

The running belt of 190 × 70 cm is bigger than conventional treadmills which makes it suitable for  a wide range of subjects with different body types. In addition, the touch screen is a major highlight of this treadmill, which not only allows for setting protocols on the screen, but also allows for reading of indicators such as slope, speed, distance, time, heart rate, etc., making it very convenient.

Maxima Medisch Centrum (MMC)

2023

Lode is the standard in Ergometry in medicine. We endorse the cooperation with Lode, and fruitful meetings to improve our research in this rare occupational disease.

“Lode is the standard in Ergometry in medicine. We endorse the cooperation with Lode, and fruitful meetings to improve our research in this rare occupational disease.“

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.

National Heart Centre Singapore

2023

The MR Ergometer Pedal fits well with our set-up and we have been using this as an exercise stress modality since 2017. Our radiographers and patients have excellent feedback on the comfort and ease of use.

At the National Heart Centre Singapore, we have developed an exercise stress CMR protocol using the MR ergometer pedal to differentiate patients with exercise induced cardiac remodeling from early dilated cardiomyopathy; and patients presenting with chest pain and suspected ischemic heart disease.

We developed the exercise CMR stress protocol to increase diagnostic confidence of differentiating patients with exercise-induced cardiac remodeling from early dilated cardiomyopathy and diagnose ischemic heart disease in patients presenting with chest pain.

Angio in space

2019

Special application of the Angio ergometer in space testing.

“A special application of the Lode Angio ergometer to enable test persons to perform exercise testing while spinning in a centrifuge.“

The Angio ergometer is mounted in a special centrifuge of ESA which is used at Medes. This is a device with 4 arms with a total diameter of 6 meters. Horizontal beds are mounted on the arms in which test persons can be placed. Due to the centrifugal force generated during rotation, the test person experiences a force similar to standing up. We call this artificial gravity.

It is crucial that the ergometer can be checked and controlled from the control room.
