Objective This study aims to evaluate the effect of electrolyzed water effect on bacterial colonization on diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) patients. Method This is an in vitro study. Eight bacteria are incubated into 5 types of electrolyzed water (ESAW), electrolyzed weak acid water (EWAW), electrolyzed neutral water (ENAW), electrolyzed weak alkaline water (EWAlW), and electrolyzed strong alkaline water (ESAlW). Evaluations were performed 2, 24, 48 and 72 h after incubation. Data were analyzed using repeated ANOVA test used to compare the difference of electrolyzed water effect on bacterial colonization of DFU patients. Results ESAW (pH 2.5) significantly (p = 0.001) had a better bactericidal effect than EWAW, ENAW, EWAlW and ESAlW. Conclusion Current study confirmed the positive effect ESAW on bacterial colonization in DFU patients.
