0-Watt start-up system

Lowest possible startup power

The 0-Watt Start-up System gives the opportunity to start the ergometer without load at a preset pedal speed (rpm). You can choose any pedal speed between 30 and 60 rpm. The number of revolutions is increased from 0 to the required rpm by means of a motor drive. With this option there is no energy-loss due to the start-up phase. The test subject can start the exercise with the target rpm and the lowest load of the ergometer, which is 7 watt. To be able to operate this option the ergometer needs to be executed with a 7" control unit with touch screen.


NB: this option cannot be combined with the optional Electric adjustable saddle height (#960810)


Reliable and reproducible stress tests

The experience of professionals who calibrate many ergometers showed that the Lode ergometers are the most reliable across the complete workload and rpm range and still within specifications even after many years of intensive use.


The ergometer can be used in various ergometry settings, enabling a multifunctional deployment.

High standards

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.
