Lode Ergometry Manager - LEM 10

Versatile data and ergometer management

The Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) is a software package used for controlling Lode ergometers and monitoring test subject ergometric parameters. The software enables the operator to program protocols, control ergometers, visualize, save and analyze ergometry data and print customized reports in PDF. Worldwide commonly used bicycle and treadmill protocols are standard preprogrammed. The program also provides a patient database and the possibility to connect to a SQL server or the Hospital Information System (HIS) with HL7. LEM 10 is also backwards compatible with previous versions, allowing you import and use your existing database easily. The software has been developed and tested according to the Lode principles of accuracy, durability and reliability. The Lode Ergometry Manager can be extended with various modules, each with its specific functions and visualizations. The Lode Ergometry Manager can be used for testing and training in several rehabilitation settings, sports medicine, physiotherapy and research environments.


For connection to our Lode ergometers, you will need to order a Network Connection Cable (#930930).


Before upgrading to LEM 10 also make sure that your ergometer has the latest firmware installed. Your distributor can assist you.


Easy installation

- Simple step by step installer
- Automatic detection of exercise devices
- Easy setup of subjects

Multifunctional software for Lode ergometers

Software for all Lode ergometers, incl. options like BPM, HR, SpO2 etc. Worldwide commonly used bicycle and treadmill protocols are preprogrammed. Load, BPM and Borg notation triggers can be set remotely. Time trials can be implemented.

Complete Ergometry setting

The modular structure of the software combined with the accurate and reliable Lode ergometers offers a complete and modern ergometry setting.

Complete control

Easy set up of Subject data with photo
Create protocols quickly and efficiently
Overview of progress during test
Customized pdf reports

Additional functionality available in Modules

Functionality of the software can be enhanced using the modules, like Wingate sprint tests, Åstrand sub maximal tests and the possibility to program protocols with multiple decisions targets and formulas.


Patient Database

An extensive patient database is available, which can work as a stand alone database or linked to a SQL server. HL7 connection to the Hospital Information System (HIS) is possible.

Isokinetic mode Excalibur and Brachumera

Isokinetic stages can be programmed for the Excalibur and Brachumera.

Visualisation of seating position Excalibur Sport

The seating position for the Excalibur Sport can be saved and compared with the actual or former positions

Sophisticated analysis menu

Possibility to zoom into the results and synchronize with other graphs. To have a better look with the use of the x/y coordinate functionality. Compare several test results from a Test subject in a clear overview, or compare different test subject performing the same exercise test. Define your own print report.

Customizable dashboard

The dashboard on the monitor can be customized and saved for several applications. Test views and Analysis can easily be adjusted, completed and saved.

User friendly protocol templates

Protocol templates for creating standard protocols for the bicycle and treadmill ergometers are available. An efficient manner to define the amount, duration and type of stages, in interval- step- or bodyweight controlled- protocols. Adjusting those protocols can be done at any time.

Advanced protocol editor

Exercise Protocols with target energy and target distance stages are created with the protocol editor. Special body weight depended stages, linear stages, ramping stages or Heart rate controlled protocols are easily programmed and customized. Default protocols are available.

Backwards compatible with previous LEM versions

LEM 10 is compatible with LEM 6, 7, 8 and 9. This means that the database of these versions can be imported and used in LEM 10.

Yes the Valiant Treadmill can be controlled by the LEM. The treadmill is supplied with a RS232 port and can be controlled by a seperate communicationport
LEM 10 has been redesigned from the ground up.
A complete redesign of the workflow makes your activities more efficient
Automatic detection of connected devices allows for easy connection and detection.

For Excalibur:
- visualisation of saddle and handlebar adjustment.

For PFM (Pedal Force Measurement):
- new visualisation of PFM data in a polar diagram (Force, Torque, Load) for single, combined and added sides.
- easy zoom in on Area's of Interest
- easy link to other data
- easy zeroing with feedback.

For Wingate
- PP5
Yes you can. Make sure the chipset used in the converter is from FTDI to have good data acquisition.
Not sure what this means? Contact us and we will help you to get the right converter.
It is important to update the firmware of your existing ergometer to the latest version. This guarantees correct communication between the software and your product and the most optimal userexperience.

Also check if your Windows version is 7 or higher.
A: Secure the files of the old PC

Open an explorer window on the OLD PC

Type %localappdata%\Lode\Lode Ergometry Manager 10 in the searchbox

Copy the following files to a USB memory stick or a network directory


B: Install LEM 10 on the NEW PC

Install LEM10 on the NEW PC

Close LEM10 on the new PC

After installation is complete

C: Place the files from the OLD PC on the NEW PC

Open an explorer window on the NEW PC

Type %localappdata%\Lode\Lode Ergometry Manager 10 in the searchbox

Copy the three files from the USB memory stick in that directory

Start LEM and it should look like it was on the old PC.

Yes, time trials are possible from LEM 10.11.0. To create a time trial protocol you have to use linear protocol stages. Besides the linear alpha (similar to the gear) and time you are also able to change the drag resistance, rolling resistance and air density, so you can make stretches of your time trial.

In a future the time trial variables will be extended with wind speed and elevation.
