What is a Lode ergometer?

What is a Lode ergometer?

Lode Ergometers are known worldwide for their accuracy and reliability. The Lode Excalibur Sport is the Gold Standard in Ergometry and is available with Wingate Test option. The newly designed and improved Excalibur sport ergometer meets the latest requirements of modern sports medicine and research.

What is cycle ergometer exercise?

A cycle ergometer is a type of stationary exercise bicycle equipped with an ergometer instrument that measures the amount of work done by the individual peddling the bike. Cycle ergometers are one of a number of different types of ergometers that may be used as part of fitness tests.

What do ergometers provide?

An ergometer is an exercise machine that tests the exertion exhibited by certain muscles or that keeps track of how much of a particular exercise has been done. It can also refer to certain exercise machines that allow someone to perform cardio exercises using the arms and legs while remaining in a stationary position.

How is a VO2 max test done?

To measure VO2 max, you wear a mask and heart rate monitor hooked up to a treadmill or stationary bike. The mask is connected to a machine that collects and measures the volume of oxygen you inhale, and the amount of air you exhale.

What is a good VO2 max for female?

Most female athletes have a score between 60-85 ml and male athletes between 70-85. Some athletes even record a score greater than 90.

What is the feedback loop of the lode ergometer?

Electrical braking and the feedback loop of the Lode ergometers, which adjusts load inversely to pedal rate, is the most accurate method of determining external power output The Lode bicycle ergometers and treadmills are not only used in the cardiopulmonary, research and sports medical environments.

Can a lode bicycle ergometer be used as a treadmill?

With the Lode bicycle ergometers, arm-ergometers, imaging-ergometers and treadmills the operator, physician or researcher can rely on the accuracy of the workload produced.The exercise devices should be calibrated regularly to keep this accuracy and to make sure the chosen workload is indeed the workload on the device.

How is the workload of an ergometer controlled?

The workload is controlled with an electronic braking principle especially designed for use in a MR environment. The MRI ergometer with ankle flexion function is a special ergometer for use during MR studies. The workload is controlled with an electronic braking principle especially designed for use in a MR environment.

How big is the range of an ergometer?

With the stand for the Angio, the ergometer can move up and down over a range of 140cm. With the stand it is easier to move your arm Ergometry setting to another room, because it can stand free.
