The purpose of this study is provided to useful data to establish the Constraint Induced Movement Therapy(CIMT) in clinical plan to more specific for stroke patients. Also It is provided way for further study about CIMT. Methods used a systematic review. Systematic review is a research method that can be presented to the scientific evidence. Data were organized by PICO(Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome). Research using the database Embase and Medline, It was searched for CIMT and Stroke. We selected for a total of 42 studies that meet the purpose of the present study. We was selected for a total of 42 studies that meet the purpose of the present study. Results was that the quality of the study is a systematic review, meta-analyzes, randomized controlled. CIMT studies was based on a high quality level of 50% of the total. The difference between the study period was 42.8%, more research was conducted prior to 2010. CIMT has been used more than mCIMT by to differ 40.5%. It is effective in over 75% of study, regardless of the CIMT intervention. In conclusion, CIMT has an effect on the upper limbs of stroke patients damaged, results will be used as a useful material to develop a CIMT in the clinical treatment plan. In future studies will need to validate studies on the effectiveness of the mCIMT, It will require a review of the effectiveness of validation studies.
