Knowledge of rehabilitation of stroke seeks to be important source of promoting recovery and independence of activity of daily living in stroke survivor. This study has the purpose to utilize the motor relearning program by means of task oriented approach. It is a novel approach towards the cortical reorganization in the sensorimotor cortex, where the sensation of normal movement pattern is achieved through variety of task practice. The major relearning of functional activity can be enhanced by

Subjects with cerebro vascular accident referred by their primary care physician to a physical therapist were recruited from the inpatient and outpatient department of Saveetha Medical Hospital based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria and informed consent obtained and was screened for the eligibility. The collected data was tabulated and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results of pre-test and post-test within group analysis showed extremely statistically significant with p-test values (P=0.0001 and P <0.0001). It is concluded from this study that both the variety of tasks and number of repetition improves upper limb function following hemiplegia. Further intervention with more number of repetition resulted in a better recovery than intervention with more number of tasks.
