Stroke is the second leading cause of death and the third disability in the world. Basic health research in Indonesia in the last 12 years shows that the prevalence of stroke is still high. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked or bursts, so that part of the brain does not get a blood supply and leads to cell death. A patient can avoid death but can still have the risk of experiencing a permanent or temporary disability that affects their productivity. One of the signs of disability in stroke patients is a change in muscle tone. The socioeconomic impact of stroke on a country is so enormous that it needs serious attention both in prevention and treatment. This review aimed to find out and review the development of research related to stroke, especially regarding risk factors, clinical manifestations, and muscle spasticity in post-stroke patients. Article writing was done by summarizing and analyzing the muscle tone of post-stroke patients. The sources of literature were from national and international journal providers by using the keywords “stroke risk factor, “stroke clinical feature”, and “muscle tone related to post-stroke spasticity”. This review concluded that there is an increase in muscle tone in post-stroke patients that causes muscle spasticity. This increased muscle tone can also be a sign of suboptimal therapy in stroke patients. It is hoped that there will be a wearable device developed to detect muscle tone that is concise and easy to use by the therapist or the patient’s family.
