Lode Cardiac Rehab Manager

Turn-key Solution for Cardiac Rehabilitation

Lode offers a turn-key solution for cardiac rehabilitation. The complete solution consists of our intuitive and user-friendly LCRM software, a very compact wearable ECG streamer and is completed with our reliable Lode rehab ergometers.

The LCRM software (#950902) is unique and control the Lode rehab devices. It helps the test operator to prepare cardiac rehabilitation sessions by the possibility to predefine protocols and test groups. The software also documents all relevant data (e.g. ECG, BPM, SpO2, Speed, Inclination, RPM, Load, etc) for later analysis and provides individual reports and continuous ECG control. The test operator can rely on the quality of the software and thus focus on the patients. The extensive patient database can work as a stand-alone database or linked to a SQL server. Of course HL7 connection to the Hospital Information System (HIS) is possible.

The compact 2-channel ECG streamer (#950920) is wearable and wireless. This makes it possible for the test subject to move around the ergometer and perform all kind of exercises while the ECG data are still monitored. The batteries of multiple ECG streamers can be charged using a USB cord or simultaneously in a docking station.

Each Cardiac Rehabilitation Solution is custom made, based on the requirements of the user. You can use part number #950902 for ordering the LCRM software for a setting with 2 stress test devices. For each additional device, you can order an additional license (#950906). For a complete setup, please check the accessories and related products or contact your local Lode distributor.

Yes the Valiant Treadmill can be controlled by LCRM. The treadmill is supplied with a RS232 port and can be controlled by a seperate com port.
Yes the SpO2 results are visible during the rehab session.
Yes! It is very easy to create a comfortable rehab setting with Lode rehab products by looping the ergometers:

The first Lode rehab ergometer can be connected to the PC with LCRM with a Lode proprietary network to PC cable (#930930).
The second product up till the last product can be connected to the previous one, a bus network configuration.

The last product always needs a termination plug to avoid interference and loss of data. All Lode rehab products come standard with such a termination plug.

- Flawless data connection
- High bandwidth
- No interference of COM ports
- Looping
- Full access of all data in the product to LCRM
Yes you can upgrade to a newer LCRM version without any influence on the total LCRM installation, The Lode Streamers, ergometers and treadmills will work as usual.
A press longer than 3 seconds of the blue start/stop button starts the measuring of the device. A green light indicates that the device is switched on with a slow blink. A blue light indicates the connection state. A fast blink of the blue light indicates the device
is waiting for a connection. A slow blink of the blue light indicates the device is connected and sending data.
To switch the ECG streamer OFF, press and hold the blue button for about 3 seconds. The green light will blink 3 times and the product is OFF.
Besides charging the device with the USB charge cable (950792), there is a docking station (950840, optional) to charge four streamers at the same time. The red light indicates the state of the battery charging. This light is on during charging and off when charging finished.
Placement of the electrodes: Red: right arm, 1st intercostal space, avoiding thick muscle Yellow: left arm, 1st intercostal space, avoiding thick muscle Green: left leg, 6th intercostal space Black: right leg ground electrode, 6th intercostal space Lead I: Red Electrode (right arm) and Yellow Electrode (left arm) Lead II: Red Electrode (right arm) and Green Electrode (left leg) See manual m950920 chapter 7 for a picture of the electrode placement.
It's essential to use ECG electrodes which are suitable for stress testing. These electrodes have extra-strong adhesion and therefore stick better during exercise and/or testing. Use always 4 electrodes of the same brand, type and expiration date. The cheaper quality ECG electrodes for taking an ECG during rest will not stick enough when the patient starts to sweat.
SpO2 can be used to control the load of the ergometer. In the tab "SpO2 " you can choose to use SpO2 for automatic load adjustment and you can edit the settings (see manual LCRM 950902)
LCRM is not compatible with bicycle ergometers and treadmills of another brand, the workload, speed or slope can not be crontrolled. It is possible however to select the "ECG-only protocol" and use the non-Lode device as a stand-alone system.
When the automatic Blood Pressure option is available on the Lode ergometer, this module is compatible with LCRM. You can program the blood pressure interval in the exercise protocols.
The stage "Heart Rate Controlled" gives you the opportunity to create a protocol to train with a certain heart rate. You can set the training duration and the target heart rate. The intensity (load or speed and inclination) will be controlled by the software in order to come to this certain heart rate as well as to keep the heart rate stable around the target. To set "The Target Heart Rate" you can choose between absolute heart rate, relative to max heart rate or Karvonen.
During a training it is possible the adjust the workload (in Watt, speed slope and target HR). You can switch from workload controlled towards HR controlled and vice versa as well.
LCRM allows for data interchange with Hospital Information Systems (HIS) via the HL7 standard. Since there are many HIS that use different interpretations and versions of HL7 connectivity may not work out of the box. For some HIS special adaptations need to be made. In the General Settings, tab HL7 you can connect to your HL7 server if you have one. Please contact your systems administrator for the settings. Lode can provide support to implement your specific communication requests. You may contact Lode if this is required.
The LCRM software is not meant to be a diagnostic tool, the ECG signal can be used for monitoring up to 16 patients simultaneously. For a maximal (CPET) exercise test, always use a diagnostic (12-lead) exercise ECG device.
Since LCRM software version 3.0, deactivate, reactivate and remove actions are logged on username, action and id number of the operator; because of privacy and GPDR regulations names and date of births are not logged. The logfiles can be found in %appdata%/lode/lcrm as AuditLod.csv.
When there is no ergometer connected to the slot, you can create "ECG Only" Protocols. These protocols are meant to monitor ECG while the participant is doing exercises without ergometer, like ball games, squats, lunges or jumps. Keep in mind the streamer needs to be in the range of the system and extreme muscle activity of the upper body will influence the ECG quality.
A Physical Work Capacity (PWC) Protocol can be programmed for the bicycle ergometers. During a PWC protocol the workload will increase every 2 seconds with 1 watt untill the set heart rate is reached. The Workload belonging to the target heart rate is the PWC result which is dependent on the physical condition of the patient.
A Karvonen protocol can be selected. In the Karvonen protocol the formula based on maximum heart rate and resting heart rate is implemented: HR (Karvonen) = HRrest + (HRmax - HRrest) * x%. The percentage is defined by the physician depending on the physical improvement of the participant. The resting heart rate and maximum heart rate should be defined in the participant characteristics.
the LCRM database can be connected to a MS SQL Server. Data stored on the MS SQL server can be reached from another PC with installed LCRM software which is connected to this MS SQL server.
Data locally stored can't be shared, but data stored on a MS SQL server can be shared. Please note that the raw ECG data is stored on the PC on which the trainings are performed. Only marked ECG data is stored in the database and accessible from other locations.
Yes you will need a new license to upgrade LCRM. This license can be supplied by the Lode service support. You may need to order this via your distributor

An upgrade to a newer version of software will give you more functionality, it's not for free.
An update will give you small improvements and bug fixes, this is for free.
The Lode ECG streamer is a compact 2-channel system with integrated rechargeable batteries. It can be supplied with an optional custom pack (#950824) for triggering the TTL pulse (needed for blood pressure measurement).

Fully charged the streamer can be used for approximately 8 hours. The integrated battery of the ECG streamer can be recharged with the USB charge cable (950792), or 4 simultaneously in the optional docking station (950840).
