The increase in DM patients, the diabetic ulcer complications have also increased, which is about 15% suffer from ulcers in the legs, and 12-14% including foot ulcers require amputation. The results of field studies showed that treatment of diabetic ulcers in hospitals prior to this innovation is to drape the foot side of the bed; stuck in bed with the coated; placed on crooked, and there are propped up with plastic basin. This causes the treatment time becomes longer, discomfort, fatigue and problems during treatment of diabetic ulcers. Creating a tool that can be used for the treatment of diabetic ulcers to more effectively and efficiently, that is SIFOEDT (Simple Foot Elevator for Diabetic Ulcer Treatment).

Technique sampling is consecutive sampling. Results: Mean of ulcer treatment before use SIFOEDT 18.09 minutes, and after using SIFOEDT be 12.62 minutes. Comfort patients before using SIFOEDT majority (80%) say less comfortable, while after using SIFOEDT majority (90%) say comfortable. The level of fatigue patients before using SIFOEDT majority (86.7 %%) said fatigue, while after using SIFOEDT majority (93.3%) said no fatigue. Conclusions: There are significant differences of diabetic ulcer treatment time before and after using SIFOEDT (p = 0.000).
