Stroke was one of main cause of death and neurologic spoilage. The basic problem of stroke was disturbance of flood flow in the brain area, because suddenly or gradually the brain didn’t get the flood flow or the artery gave the blood discontinuously or hampered, so that that brain area couldn’t be functioned anymore. This regional blue caused dysfunction at partly of the body. Generally, that dysfunction was in the form of hemiparilisis or hemyparesis that accompanied with sensory deficit with or without disturbance of body function. This dysfunction caused disturbance of client’s live balance. Mobilization was ability to mobile the body components freely and normally as the energy result of humans basic needs. Early mobilisation that was done was the change of sleep position in order to prevent decubitus. Nurses could do mobilisation and changed the pasients’ position who were only able to be in bed each 2-3 hours. If this mobilisation was not done, it could cause tirah of long lying that called Decubitus. Patients’ position must be changed each 2-3 hours in the position of recumbent, inclined to the health side and to the pain side. When the patients inclined to the pain side, manage it not more than 20 minutes. The aim of this research was to know the influence of mobilization toward decubitus incident at the stroke patients who experienced with disturbance of motorist function. The design of this research was quasi experiment design with pre - post test control group. The sampling technique was by using purposive sampling. The sample were 40 persons that consisted of 20 persons for intervention group and 20 persons for control group. The data collecting was using observation sheet of decubitus grade. The result showed that there was any influence of mobilization toward decubitus incidents at the stroke patients with disturbance of motorist function. Recommendation of this research result could be used as one alternative of nursing intervention in the effort to decrease the decubitus grade of stroke patients with disturbance of motorist disturbance. Key words: Mobilisation, Decubitus, Stroke Patients.
