Brief Summary:
Hypothesis:benefits of inspiratory muscle strenght training with Respifit S decreases symptoms, disability or handicap of patients affected by COPD. The inspiratory fraction (inspiratory capacity IC/ total lung capacity TLC)may be functionally more representative than other traditional indices.
