Data was analyzed using wilcoxon test. The results of this study was indicate that there have differences between muscle strength before and after ROM intervention, the right upper extremity with p = 0.01, upper left extremity with p = 0.03, lower right extremity with p = 0.02, left extremity below the value of  p = 0.01.  This study demonstrated  effectively of active ROM intervention in increasing limb muscle strength in the elderly people.
