  1. Legend: Ventilation parameters for all subjects expressed as mean and standard deviation(±SD) in seated and supine posture. The resting posture was compared to gentle jogger (GJ) in the same posture. There was a statistically significant increase from resting tidal volume and minute ventilation in both posture during use of GJ (*p ˂ 0.001 GJ vs resting; **p ˂ 0.01, †p ˂ 0.05)
