The pneumotachometer is currently the most accepted device to measure tidal breathing, however, it requires the use of a mouthpiece and thus alteration of spontaneous ventilation is implied. Respiratory inductive plethysmography (RIP), which includes two belts, one thoracic and one abdominal, is able to determine spontaneous tidal breathing without the use(More)
BACKGROUND Walking is part of obesity management. Assessment of ventilatory impairments and consequences for gait induced by obesity could be clinically helpful. We aimed to develop a method to accurately monitor ventilation with respiratory inductive plethysmography (RIP) in subjects with high body mass indices (BMIs) during a 6-min walk test (6MWT). (More)
We aim to evaluate thoracic respiratory inductive plethysmography (RIP) in high body mass index (BMI) subjects with a pneumotachometer (PT) as a reference. We simultaneously evaluated spontaneous breathing by RIP and PT in 10 low and 10 high BMI subjects at rest and in moderate exercise. We then recorded RIP amplitude with different excursions mimicking(More)
