Esseda Wheelchair ergometer
Realistic and accurate testing with unique wheelchair propulsion

This product and its specific use protocols are being developed with support of the European Fund for Regional Development of the European Union. The objective is to realize improved usability of wheelchairs for wheelchair users


The Lode Esseda is a wheelchair ergometer developed together with input of rehabilitation centers and universities. The request of the rehab market for wheelchair patients and the sports market was the ability to test and train  patients and sporters as realistic and at the same time as accurate as possible.


The Esseda is a wheelchair ergometer working according to the principles of inertia in order to simulate realistic wheelchair propulsion. The resistance of the ergometer can be adjusted to simulate surfaces with different friction or to create different test and training protocols. The ergometer is developed for easy access for all kind of wheelchairs, allowing athletes to use their own complete wheelchair. There is a very easy and flexible fixation system  and the ergometer also has a tool to outline the wheelchair to ensure that the wheelchair is positioned well regarding to the ergometer. The calibration is done well the athlete is in the wheelchair, so the weight of the person is also counted in order to provide the best inertia simulation. Positioning can be done with the saved position data of previous test.


The individual propulsion of the left en right wheels makes it possible to measure the force separately on both sides. Together with the high measurement frequency it is possible to detect small differences between left and right or propulsion technique. Furthermore, small changes in propulsion can be detected and the effect on various outcome measurements will be visible. This is ideal for sports medical purposes.The ergometer is controlled by the Lode Ergometry Manager Software (#955900), so multiple testing and training protocols can be cr..

Overview

Highlights
Left / right independent speed and torque
The ergometer measures is not only the summation of left and right, but real left and right independent speed and torque. Differences between the left and right speed can be shown.
Force Measurement
The ergometer allows for measuring applied force on each hoop, provided that the correct diameter of the hoop is entered in Lode Ergometry Manager
Inertia Simulation
The ergometer can simulate inertia, independend of weight of the subject and the wheelchair. Through individual calibration each subject experiences real life wheeling circumstances. Surface resistance can be set!
Positioning Aid
Through an easy lever operated positioning system the wheels can be set correctly on the drive/brake rolls to ensure reproducible and reliable measurements
Fixation with Bruns Protectors
The subjects own wheelchair needs to be fixated on the ergometer. Therefore easy fixation with 4 Bruns Protectors is available standard with the product. Easy lock and easy release creates a safe test setup
Features
