Hand function plays a major role in the performance of the activity of daily living. The purpose of the study is to improve the hand function of hemiplegic stroke patients. This study was aimed to compare the effects of Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy and functional task-oriented training to improve the hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. A comparative study was done for 30 hemiplegic patients who were picked using a convenient sampling method from Isari Mission Hospital, Thalambur were chosen based on inclusion criteria and Exclusion Criteria They were then divided into two groups Group A – Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy. Group B – Functional Task-Oriented Training and followed up for 12 weeks. The pre-test and post-test values were assessed for Handheld dynamometer and Pinch gauge. The paired t-test revealed that there was a significant increase in hand function in GROUP A (constraint-induced movement therapy) when compared to GROUP B (functional task-oriented training). 12 weeks of treatment in improving hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. The conclusion of the study is that the palmar pinch, lateral pinch, power grip shows significant improvement in hand function by using constraint-induced movement therapy (Group A) than functional task-related training (Group B) in hemiplegic stroke patient
