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.

High Standards

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.

Lode Excalibur Sport – The dependable Ergometer

The Lode Excalibur Sport has an adjustable workload of 10 to 3000 watts. This offers an enormous working range for test subjects of all strengths and abilities. The communication and network module built into the Lode Excalibur Sport PFM will easily connect with our range of Cortex Metabolic devices or ECG devices and Lode’s own Ergometry Manager Software (LEM).

The ergometer is supplied with a 7″ colour touchscreen.

Get the perfect fit with electric adjustment of the saddle and handlebar

The saddle and handlebar position of the Lode Excalibur Sport can be adjusted in height, length and angle to suit all users requirements.

The saddle of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 252 mm and the saddle height in a range of 388 mm and the handlebar of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 169mm and vertically in a range of 390mm using the Control Unit or LEM.

The Test Subject can be seated whilst adjustments are made. The 7″ colour touchscreen will read out all riding position parameters to get your subject positioned perfectly every time they get onto the ergometer.

Superbly Accurate

Workload below 100w – Accurate within 2W

Workload between 100w – 1500w – Accurate within 2%

Workload between 1500w – 3000w – Accurate within 5%

Designed to be sweat-proof

The housing of the ergometer is designed in such way that sweat cannot drip into the mechanical parts and cables are protected. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction. That being said, all surfaces on the Lode Excalibur Sport 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.

Calibration and 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.

Software options for the Lode Excalibur Sport include:

Versatile data and ergometer management with – LEM 10

The Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) is a software package used for controlling Lode ergometers and is available as an optional extra for the Lode Excalibur Sport.

Easily create and edit protocols

The software enables the operator to program protocols, control ergometers, visualise, save and analyse ergometry data and print customised reports in PDF. Commonly used bicycle protocols are pre programmed as standard.

The program also provides a patient database and the possibility to connect to a SQL server or the Hospital Information System (HIS) with HL7. LEM 10 is also backwards compatible with previous versions, allowing you import and use your existing database easily.

Expand LEM 10 to suit your needs

LEM 10 can be extended with various modules, each with its specific functions and visualisations. The Lode Ergometry Manager can be used for testing and training in several rehabilitation settings, sports medicine, physiotherapy and research environments.

Wingate Test Module – For explosive power assessment

The Wingate test is a 30 seconds enduring sprint test in which the torque is kept at a constant rate depending on the bodyweight of the test subject. With this option we obtain online information about anaerobic capacity and power. The data is corrected for the moment of inertia to give you the realistic information about the power output (depending on the acceleration of the test person).

In LEM 10 it is possible to compare different software versions (algorithms to correct the moment of inertia) with each other. It is also possible to adapt the pre programmed Wingate test to your specific requirements. Create different, multiple Wingate tests to define the optimum settings and save special Wingate views for testing and analysis.

Besides the rpm dependent and rpm independent modes of the ergometer, the Wingate software gives you a constant torque mode.

Åstrand Module – Estimation of VO2 max

The LEM Expansion Module Åstrand Test is a pre programmed test protocol of the well known Åstrand test with specific visualisations, analysis and reports. It is also possible to adapt the pre programmed Åstrand test to your specific requirements.

Architect Module – User specific, decision making – custom protocols


With this expansion module you can create completely versatile protocols, including defining your own outputs and formula’s.

The module is defined in such a way that you can create steps in a graphical way. To show the versatility of Architect, several well known protocols are included, which would not be possible to create without the Architect module because certain decisions and loopings are built-in into the protocols.

In the example to the left, at the start of the protocol stage LEM is asked a question based on HR of the test subject. If HR is below 120 bpm, we add 75 watts additional load, if it is between 120bpm – 134 bpm we add 50 watts additional load, if it is greater than 135 bpm we add 25 watts. Then we wait 180 seconds, after which the load is set to 25 watts, for another 120 seconds.

At this point, we ask LEM what the HR of the test subject is, if it is below 150 bpm they stay at 25 watts load until you decide they exit to protocol. For a HR of higher than 150 bpm, they automatically are removed from the loop and move to the next stage – recovery for example.




Export Module – Export to Excel

With the LEM expansion module Export it is possible to export data of the LEM database to other programs. The data can be exported to MS Excel. Data of one test subject or multiple test subjects can be exported to an Excel sheet for further analysis.

Additional options for the Lode Excalibur Sport:

Adjustable Cranks

Adjustability of the cranks allows for optimal force application of different limb lengths and helps tailor the ergonomics of the ergometer to best fit the test subject. The cranks are adjustable in the range of 80 – 180 mm, in steps of 5 mm. This option will be supplied instead of the standard cranks and allows you to replicate road bike ergonomics.

7″ Programmable Colour Touchscreen

The 7″ Programmable Colour Touchscreen further enhances the capability of the Lode Excalibur Sport 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.

Heart Rate

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. NB this can only be ordered in combination with the (Programmable) 7″ touchscreen.

Blood Pressure

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.

Assistive Start-up

The zero-watt startup option (purchased additionally) allows to you to start the ergometer without load at a preset pedal speed (between 30 – 60 rpm). With this option there is no energy-loss for the Test Subject due to the start-up phase. This is done via an electric motor and can only be used in conjunction with a 7″ touchscreen.


This option gives the SpO2 on the display of the control unit of ergometers and can only be ordered in combination with the Programmable 7″ Colour Touchscreen.
