722-4273 provides on-site repair and maintenance of LIDO isokinetic
equipment.

My thanks to those who replied: Jeff Houck, Jody Jensen, Brian Fay, and
especially, Tim Wrigley. Tim provided the following information that may be
helpful to all who own a LIDO machine or desire to purchase an isokinetic
machine.


The main players at Loredan were Malcolm Bond and Stephen Westing. I don't
know what happened to either of them. Bond's original patent for the Lido is
here:
http://www.delphion.com/details?pn10=US04601468 It has some technical
detail, but probably out of date. Medline doesn't show up any publications
for Stephen Westing after the early 1990's, after he finished his PhD at
Karolinska and then moved to Loredan.

This company sells second-hand dynamometers, including Lidos:

This company looks after Kincom spare parts and service (since Kincom was
sold to Biodex and shelved):
http://www.kincom.com/

This company sells reconditioned Cybex's, Biodex's, and Kincoms (but not
Lidos ?) and sells software for Cybex's too:
http://www.csmisolutions.com/

I left this company off my list of possible leads:
http://www.medneeds.com/products.cfm
They sell reconditioned Lidos,
Kincoms, Cybex's and Biodex's.

Regards,

Michael
