Sense insoles

Sense Modular, semi-bespoke insoles from Buchanan Orthotics

Sense insoles have been designed using a high quality Schein base which can then be constructed to the practitioner’s specification, enabling you to stipulate any additional components to suit their patient’s needs.

Construction from three layers of reinforcing material which are laminated together to create a durable sole, a strong yet adaptable medial longitudinal arch and flexible heel cup allows the insole to form to the pitch of most shoes.

For added comfort, the underneath of the full-length insole has a unique non-slip coating to prevent movement inside the shoe. These features of our Sense insoles are achieved without compromising the support, correction and comfort of the patient, all at an affordable price.

Sense Insoles are suitable for the treatment of:

The modular nature of the Sense range allows them to be talyered to each individual condition and person. 


For full details of options, we have an order form to help you select the most appropriate clinical features.

The standard Sense shell is designed to provide arch support through its laminated reinforcements. As with all the sense insoles there is a shallow heel cup with slimline base.
