Brachumera Sport
The worlds highest load accurate arm ergometer

The Brachumera Sport is a modern and reliable arm ergometer that can be controlled both manually and by external equipment. Brachumera Sport is currently used in Olympic and professional sports where the muscles in the arms and shoulders play a mayor role, e.g. kayaking and swimming. The arm ergometer for sports can deliver a load up till 2500 Watt. The function of this product can be enhanced by using it in combination with our Lode Ergometry Manager software.


Extreme workload range of 8 - 2500 watt
The extraordinary workload range of 8-2500 watt is unique in the world! It makes this ergometer extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes in the world on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity.
Heavy Duty Design Arm Ergometer
The Brachumera Sport is designed for heavy duty sports medicine ergometry, without doing any concession on the esthetic, modern and robust design.
Easy to operate
For Lode products this means:
- easy to connect
- easy to move around
- easy user interface
Reliable and reproducible stress tests
The experience of professionals who calibrate many ergometers has learned that the Lode ergometers are the most reliable over the complete workload and rpm range and still within specifications even after many years of intensive use.
High standards
Lode is a social and environmental responsible company.
All Lode products are RoHS/WEE compliant.
Furthermore, Lode is ISO 9001:2003, ISO 13485:2008 and FDA 510K certified. All products comply the MDD 93/42/EEC standard, including IEC 60601-1.
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.
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.
Designed to be sweat-proof
The housing of the ergometer is designed in such way that sweat does not have the chance to drip into the mechanical parts. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction.
Custom View
Customer specific display setting
Display settings are adjustable according to your specific requirements: each individual has its specific wishes about the parameters to be displayed. This can easily be adjusted with the Lode ergometers.
LEM compatible
This product can be used with Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) software to manage data and to apply specific protocols when a Communication card or Network card is present
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.
RS232 connectivity
RS232 ports enable connectivity to most ECG and ergospirometry devices as well as PC's
