The purpose of this study was to use associated breathing exercises the incentive inspiratory of load lineal pressoric, Threshold® IMT, or of load pressoric alinear, Voldyne®, in institutionalized elderly, comparing the effect of the same ones in the training of the breathing musculature, for the increment of the muscular strength, expressed by the maximum breathing pressures (MIP and MEP).
From the total number of admitted people (n = 52), 12 individuals were excluded: one by appearance of cognitive deficit, one by death (stroke), one by visual deficit (glaucoma) and twelve by failure to continue the training. After selecting the sample, the 37 participants were randomly divided into three different groups: the Threshold Group (TG; n = 13, age = 70. 93 ± 8.41 years old, BMI = 24.06 ± 3.69 kg/m²), the Voldyne Group (VG; n = 12, age = 70.54 ± 7. 73 years-old, BMI = 27.17 ± 5.66 kg/m²) and the Control Group (CG; n= 12, age = 73. 92 ± 7.28 years-old, BMI = 24.80 ± 5.42 kg/m²). The TG and VG received treatment with respiratory exercises and Threshold and Voldyne muscular training, respectively. The CG received only respiratory exercises.

- Other: Comparison of different breathing muscular training
Three times per week for ten weeks, thirty minutes.Other Name: Aged, Breathing Muscles, Strength Muscles.
- Maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) in cmH2O [ Time Frame: One minute ]
- Before and after the respiratory muscle training, inspiratory and expiratory strength were evaluated and analysed through the maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP), respectively. [ Time Frame: Ten weeks ]
