Abstract

Diabetic foot ulcer is one of serious complications in diabetic patients which can lead to amputation.
Active Leg range of motion (ROM) exercise is one of physical activities which can improve blood
circulation in lower extremities. The objective of this research was to analyze the effect of active leg
ROM on the risk of diabetic foot ulcer. This research employed non randomized control group pretest
postest design. The sampling technique was purposive sampling involving 30 repondents which
were divided into 15 respondents as intervention group and 15 respondents as control group. The
data were analyzed using dependent t test and independent t test with significant level of 0.05. The
result revealed a significant difference between pretest and posttest in the intervention group (p =
0.000) but no significant difference in the control group (p = 0.582). Furthemore, independent t test
showed a significant difference between intervention group and control group (p = 0.000). This result
indicates that there is a significant effect of active leg ROM on the risk of diabetic foot ulcer in client
with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Nurse is expected to apply range of motion as one of intervention to
prevent diabetic foot ulcer in diabetes mellitus patients.
Keywords: type 2 diabetes mellitus, active leg range of motion, risk of diabetic foot ulcer
