Chester Insole Maker Looking For Support

A business based in Chester that makes customised 3D-printed insoles for shoes has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help it take the next steps and roll out its range of pressure-reducing personalised insoles to a wider market.

Chester Standard reported on the campaign set up by Cadscan, which is asking people to pledge £40 to help it reach its target of £50,000. In exchange for their support, each person who donates will receive a pair of personalised insoles from the new range.

Unlike traditional insoles, which are typically made from foam, the products from Cadscan use material that is shaped in “a lattice of different densities matched to the patient’s foot shape, loading profile and peak pressure zones”.

The material is much more durable than foam and doesn’t compress or harden over time, which means they last longer.

Managing director of Cadscan Dr Alastair Buchanan told the newspaper that it’s simple for customers to place an order - all they have to do is complete a simple foot test at home and upload some photos of their feet. The advanced software and algorithms at Cadscan will do the rest.

“It will be the first time that customers can buy such a professional insole for such great value,” Dr Buchanan revealed.

Businesses in Chester, and elsewhere in the UK, will no doubt be watching closely to see the results of the UK’s general election this week.

A survey conducted ahead of the election by the Institute of Directors found that, overall, business leaders support an increase in public spending, although half of those surveyed only want to see a slight increase.
