  • Aging reduces rib cage contribution and increase abdominal contribution.

  • Aging increases end-inspiratory and end-expiratory chest wall volumes.

  • Sitting position might benefit patients who present reduced tidal volume.

  • Posture influences all variables of breathing pattern and chest wall motion, except respiratory rate and duty cycle.
