Diabetes Mellitus (DM) or Diabetes is a disease characterized by a high sugar level in the blood. The foot is con-sidered as a distinct entity where most of the complication arises that often leads to lower extremity amputa-tion. Recently, the Pulse Magnetic Field (PMF) devices that use magnetic field intensity as stimulants are being used to improve blood circulation among patients with peripheral vascular diseases (PVD). This study pro-motes the use of Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) devices in diagnosing and monitoring DM after the use of PMF devices by providing a piece of biomedical evidence through a simulation approach on how to recon-struct a 3-dimensional biological tissue shape models. The result showed that this simulation approach could be of use in the actual reconstruction of a diabetic foot showing the absorption coefficient. NIRS device and the biomedical images could be of use in places where radiographic imaging modalities are not accessible.
