Ever since Freerk Lode manufactured the first electro-magnetic cycle ergometer in 1952, accuracy, reliability and durability have been fundamental for further developments. Having started years ago in the small market of cardiology and pulmonary function, Lode BV has become a specialist in the complete spectrum of medical ergometry. Lode is world renowned as a manufacturer of high quality ergometers and the Lode brand stands for accuracy, durability and ergonomic design. The Lode product range varies from bicycle ergometers and treadmills to recumbent, arm and supine ergometers and ergometry software.
Long-term experience in manufacturing medical equipment and continuous development to meet the changing requirements of the market, make Lode a flexible and reliable partner. Together we can transform your specific ideas and wishes into custom-made products.
Before leaving the factory all Lode ergometers are dynamically calibrated and, of course, all units are produced under the strictest quality control conditions. Lode is ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2003 and FDA certified and fulfils the EU Medical Device Directive MDD 93/42/EEC. Over years of use, service costs are almost negligible.
The department of Human Movement Sciences performs research covering a broad spectrum of fundamental and applied work in human movement. The research is multidisciplinary; we combine physiology, psychology, mathematics and (bio) mechanics, and have an integrative and translational approach. Our research is mainly experimental, and focuses on the movement of man in relation to his surroundings and to the musculoskeletal system. This is to examine both the normal and the pathological functioning. In addition to the fundamental research we do research that focuses on the application of the knowledge we obtained, with the aim of optimizing mobility in for example sport and rehabilitation. Our research is largely funded by parties outside the university, such as NWO, STW, EU, and charities.
