Every year according to the World Health Organization (WHO) 15 million people suffer from stroke [1]. This number will continue to increase if no preventive measures are implemented. The effectiveness of the recovery process would be seen and patient is advice to do properly exercise to stimulate muscle movement and brain to function and have reactions perfectly. After doing some research this project used old method in difference ways and difference components to create this device. These tools can be used anywhere because it does not require electricity AC power supply 240 Volt, but it uses 12 volt D/C, where the battery is easy to carry and fits alongside the tool. This device work when there is force applied to the sensor and the sensor will detect the force and continue to send signals to the microprocessor. The strength of the force will be identified either strong or weak by using the voltage divider formula where the stronger the force applied the low resistance value. While if the force applied is lower then, the resistance will be high. There, patients can know if they improved in recovery process or otherwise. The resulting value will be compared with previous result to be analyzed by a doctor to determine appropriate exercise according to his stage of development. These tools are also using chip PIC16F877 as the brains to control all the functions of the components involved. Lastly, the best technique in rehabilitation process for stroke patient is repetitive movement. This device will assist patient in easy way to show improvement and display data so that patient know their current condition either in good improvement or not.
