Abstract: Background: Cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and stroke rank first with an impact on impaired bodily functions. Strokes can cause death and considerable disability caused by a sudden decline in neurological function due to cerebrovasluker disease. Disruption of blood circulation causes oxygen to be carried by the blood decreases, causing nerve cell death. The actions taken to deal with stroke are comprehensive actions that include promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative. One comprehensive action to reduce the impact of stroke is worsened in patients with range of motion exercises range of motion and foot massage. Method: The type of research used is True Experiment using a pre-test-post-test with control group design. This study arranged three groups: the first intervention group who were given treatment Range of Motion (ROM) with foot massage for 15 minutes, the second intervention group treated Range of Motion (ROM) with foot massage for 20 minutes and control group who were given Range of Motion treatment (ROM) without foot massage for 30 minutes. Technique probability sampling with method simple random sampling is used to get 57 respondents were divided into three groups with each group amounted to 19 respondents. Results: The result statistical test One Way Anova showed a p value <0.05 so that it can be concluded that there is an effect intervention of Range of Motion (ROM) with foot massage to improve motor function in non-hemorrhagic stroke patients. Conclusion: The results of the study after being given a nursing action improved motor function improved in patients who received intervention Range of Motion (ROM) with foot massage for 15 and 20 minutes, so that complementary therapy was effectively implemented to patients who experience motor function disorders especially in non-hemorrhagic stroke patients.
