Abstract: In this chapter, we present the results of a study on factors that contribute to the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers using natural latex biomaterials made from Hevea brasiliensis, in the form of biomaterials applied to humans (in this case, in direct contact with the human skin). The chapter is organized in the following way: in section 2, it is defined what a diabetic foot is, to provide the context for addressing the problem. The use of natural latex biomaterials made from Hevea brasiliensis is discussed in the context of biotechnology, wherein Hevea brasiliensis is used as a raw material in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot. In section 3, the diabetic foot is described by a mathematical model and it is presented how the use of biomaterial latex acts as modifier of the dynamics of the system to believe this application as a minor theory and/or auxiliary hypothesis in the biotechnological process as it applies to humans. In section 4 and 5 the chapter closes with a presentation of a "natural latex insole" prototype capable of preventing and treating diabetic foot ulcers.
