Lode Corival Eccentric
Lode Corival Eccentric – Negative Cycle Ergometry
The Lode Corival is one of the most popular ergometers worldwide. With it’s Ultra-low step through design, quiet operation and low start-up load of 7 Watts, it isn’t hard to see why.
Save time with easy ergonomics
The new designed lever for the Lode Corival Eccentric makes it even easier to adjust the handlebar, rotating 360 degrees to find the optimum handlebar position at any saddle height. Adjusting the saddle can be done with one hand using a small lever or via the display when purchased with the electric saddle option.
The Corival Eccentric is standard supplied with a 7″ programmable touch screen control unit and a 3.5″ display, allowing you to read out important parameters such as, workload, rpm, time. The program function enables testing and training on Lode devices with a controlled change in workload during exercise.
Protocols manage the load during exercise in steps, ramps or even a heart rate controlled function without having to change this manually. Defining the protocols beforehand not only provides a controlled workload but also gives room to focus on the test subjects during exercise. Up to 50 protocols can be programmed.
What makes a Lode Ergometer?
The eddy current electro-magnetic braking mechanism is synonymous to all Lode Ergometers. Eddy current braking systems offer quiet, smooth, precise and adjustable control. Through design, this allows control of the workload without the need for physical contact between brake pads and the flywheel, reducing wear and tear.
Lode is a socially and environmentally responsible company. All Lode products are RoHS/WEE compliant and Lode is ISO 9001:2003, ISO 13485:2008 and FDA 510K certified. All medical products comply to MDD 93/42/EEC, incl. IEC 60601-1.
Train severe cardiac and pulmonary patients with eccentric exercise
Eccentric ergometry or “negative ergometry” is done by using an electric motor. This motor acts on the crank axle of the Lode Corival Eccentric by pushing back in the opposite direction to rotation. The test subject has to resist this workload and keep the pedal frequency at a selected number to get the desired training effect.
The maximal eccentric workload is 250 watts. The range of target rpm (30-100 rpm) can be customised and adjusted during the training session. The Lode Corival Eccentric ergometer has safety protections built in, but should not be used without supervision.
Besides Eccentric ergometry, the ergometer can be used for normal ergometry as well. In this case, the Lode Corival Eccentric workload is adjustable in 1 watt increments in the range of 7 to 1000 watts. This offers a wide working range for test subjects of all strengths and abilities.
The communication module built into the Lode Corival Eccentric will easily connect with our range of Cortex Metabolic devices or ECG devices.
The ultralow step-through enables easy access to the ergometer and combined with the easily adjusted handlebar it guarantees a perfect ergonomic position. The saddle height can be read out via the scale on the saddle shaft or digitally, via the optional 7″ touchscreen if purchased with the electric saddle option.
The Lode Corival Eccentric has a maximum user weight of 180 kg.
Workload below 100w – Accurate within 3W
Workload between 100w – 500w – Accurate within 3%
Workload between 500w – 1000w – Accurate within 5%
Easy to Clean
All surfaces on the Lode Corival Eccentric are easily wipeable thanks to their gloss finish. Use a lightly moistened cloth with a non-abrasive, soap or disinfectant. Cleaning agents containing alcohol or caustic components may damage and/or discolour surfaces.
All cables and connections are underneath the ergometer, reducing the risk of wires accidentally being knocked or pulled out and give a cleaner look.
Calibration & Maintenance
The ergometer should be calibrated and serviced once per year. Our team of experienced engineers, use our dedicated Lode calibrator to check the ergometers power output at a variety of power increments and cadences. Giving you peace of mind that the ergometer is fully functional and as accurate as the day it left the factory.
Further Options include:
This option gives the heart rate in beats per minute on the touchscreen display and offers the possibility of heart rate controlled testing. The test person wears a belt with a sensor.
Electric adjustable saddle
With this option, the saddle of the Lode Corival Rehab can be adjusted in a range of 30 cm using the 7″ colour touchscreen. The patient can be seated on the saddle while adjusting the height. The saddle height can also be adjusted with the Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) or Lode Cardiac Rehab Manager (LCRM) software if you have these.
NB: this option cannot be combined with the:
– optional shortened saddle shaft
– optional 0-Watt start-up system
The blood pressure monitor is designed for blood pressure measurements during physical activity. Thanks to mechanical and electrical filtering, the BP readings remain reliable even during high load exercise tests. For both stress and resting BP reading, the original auscultatory Korotkov / Riva-Rocci method is used.
Thanks to a built-in speaker, original Korotkoff sounds are clearly reproduced. An ECG trigger is not needed for reliable BP readings, although it is available if desired. Measurement time is very short (usually within 30 seconds) thanks to the rapid cuff inflation.
The blood pressure monitor can be used in 2 ways: Fully integrated control by all common ECG or CPET devices or as a stand alone device with automatic interval measurements.
Various Cuff sizes are available. The cuff is completely washable, thanks to the removeable microphone and inflation bag.
Shortened Saddle Shaft
With the shortened saddle shaft option the saddle of the ergometer can be adjusted to the lowest position possible. The saddle is adjustable in a range of 452 – 775 mm. The minimum leg length (with standard pedals) is 622 mm and with adjustable cranks 532 mm. The minimum saddle height is 452 mm.
NB: this option cannot be combined with the electric adjustable saddle height
