Brachumera sport with Pedal Force Measurement

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. Pedal Force Measurement allows for analysis of force balance and stroke efficiency. The arm ergometer for sports can deliver a load up till 2500 Watt. It can be connected to Lode Ergometry Software for data management, protocol creation and execution. This ergometer has built-in modified strain gauge technology that measures forces exerted on the pedals during exercise and is supplied with angle detection. Independent measurements of forces in both left and right crank are possible. Wireless transmission of the measured forces to the PC by blue tooth. Note: this setting comes standard with LEM and LEM PFM software, a computer (we recommend to use this PC only for the LEM software) and an interface cable ergometer - PC (part no. 930911). Various LEM extension modules are optional available.


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.

Left & right independent measurements

The PFM is not only the summation of left and right, but real left and right independent measurements. Differences between the left and right pedal movement, before and after surgery or at different workload can be detected. A real diagnostic tool!

Special Analysis and Polar Graphs

Analysis and Polar graphs are specifically designed for pedal force measurement

LEM PFM included

The LEM software with PFM module is standard included

Measurement every 2 degrees

The accuracy of the PFM during the total revolution is obtained by the placement of highly specific strain gauges in the crank axis making it possible to measure the pedal force every 2 degrees during each revolution during the exercise test.


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 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.

Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.
