Background. Stroke is a disease caused by the death of tissues in the brain. Clinical problems arise such as motor, sensory, cognitive, language, and emotional disorders. Motor disorders experienced by stroke patients are a decrease in functional ability. Virtual reality training is one of the physiotherapy exercises in handling stroke cases and is estimated to be able to modulate neuroplasticity so as to improve the functional capabilities of the extremities of stroke patients.

Know how effective virtual reality exercises against improving the functional ability of the upper extremities in case of stroke. Result. The provision of virtual reality exercises is proven to improve the functional capabilities of the upper extremities in stroke patients. Virtual reality exercises for stroke provide audio and visual stimulation that triggers neuro-rehabilitation resulting in cortical re-mapping. And also provide motivation that triggers stroke patients to do exercises with a lot of reps so that neuroplasticity occurs. with various parameters such as Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity Scale (FMA-UE), Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT), and Box and Block Test (BBT). Conclusion. The administration of physiotherapy exercises using virtual reality can be an interventional solution to rehabilitate and improve the function of the upper extremities if paying attention to several things, such as virtual reality methods, dosages, and the availability of therapeutic tools.
