Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Handgrip strength assessed witn hydraulic dynamometer - the subject is driven to perform three manouvers of manual pressure in dynamometer and researcher registrate only the two higher values. The subject rest for one minute between the manouvers. The subject perform this test once a time.

Maximal inspiratory and expiratory pressure assessed with manovacuometry - the subject is driven to perform an maximal expiratory force in manovacuometer. This is performed to inspiratorry muscles too. The subject perform this teste thee times ande the researcher researcher registrate only the two higher values. The subject rest for one minute between the manouvers. The subject perform this test once a time.

Summary
Brief summary
Asthma is a chronic disease characterized by airway involvement and lead limitations on the patient's daily life, interfering with leisure, work and daily activities. The handgrip strength has been used as an indicator of functional integration and total body strength. Some chronic diseases lead to impairment in muscle strenght. The hypothesis of this study is that asmathic women have in ther impairment in muscle strenght, and that can be assesseb by the hangrip Objective: Compare the performance of handgrip strength in the test group of participants and non-asthmatic and asthmatic determine whether the severity of asthma influences that extent
