According to the Brazilian Association of Endocrinology and Metabolism, diabetes, or Diabetes Mellitus, is a chronic, autoimmune disease, characterized by the deficiency of insulin production by the body. The problem involves the metabolism of glucose in the blood and can be presented in several ways. The best known types of diabetes are 1 and 2. Beta-cell failure in the pancreas characterizes the first, which affects children and adolescents more often. Type 2 diabetes, whose genetic load is

The other forms of diabetes can be manifested by anatomical lesions in the pancreas, due to several toxic aggressions, by infections, chemical compounds, among others. A very common consequence of diabetes it's a formation of skin wounds due to metallic disorders, these wounds can be very aggressive and diminish the quality of life of the patients. Anequipment based on phototherapy associated with a latex blade was developed as an alternative treatment for skin wounds, the equipment works directly on the neoformation of the wounded tissue, accelerating the scarring process at a low cost.
