Dakon is one of the activities that can be chosen as a hand dexterity exercise. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of dakon playing activities on the hnad dexterity abilities of patients with hnad injuries. Methods: Quantitative research using quasi experimental design. Sampling using purposive sampling technique. Data analysis using statistical tests paired sample t-test. Results: showed a significant increase in hand dexterity with a significant level of ρ <0.05. In the right hand the results were 0.012 <0.05, left hand 0.000 <0.05, right hand + left + second hand 0.001 <0.05 and on assembly subtest 0.014 <0.05. Conclusion: Of the study showed that playing dakon activity can improve the dexterity of the hand injured patient's hand.
