The 2Toms Story
Rooted in science and the love of sport, 2Toms mission has always been to provide the best comfort and care to athletes by offering the most technologically advanced products available anywhere.
Foot motion during sports or other intense activity often causes annoying or even disabling friction wounds. Over the years, medical and scientific professionals have attempted to solve the problem. A ground-breaking solution was developed with the successful partnership of a research scientist with a Ph.D. in surface chemistry from M.I.T. and a seasoned marketing and entrepreneurial professional.
Tom Lewis has a doctorate degree from MIT, is an extreme athlete, and the author of several hiking manuals. For years Tom suffered with serious hiking blisters and pain. After extensive development and trials, Tom was ready to take his miracle blister cure product to market, but he lacked the business background and finances. Through a friend, he was introduced to Tom Judd, a successful entrepreneur and also a serious hiker. Their first meeting was a hike up Mount Monadnock in southwestern New Hampshire. Tom Judd used this innovative product for the first time and became an immediate convert.
In 2002 the 2Toms’ team came together to introduce BlisterShield, a blister prevention product that effectively controls blisters, excess heat and pressure irritation. The product was an immediate success with both professional and amateur athletes. After the success of BlisterShield, 2Toms introduced another product, SportShield, a roll-on liquid designed to prevent chafing that occurs anywhere on the body.
In 2010 and 2011, 2Toms addressed the issue of odor with StinkFree Spray and StinkFree Detergent and 2012 brought the addition of ButtShield.
In October 2013, 2Toms joined the Medi-Dyne family of brands. Medi-Dyne is a leading producer of innovative pain relief, prevention and healing products. The acquisition of 2Toms rounds out Medi-Dyne’s comprehensive selection of products and is consistent with the company’s strategy of ‘providing pain relief and protection combined with long term healing solutions along the entire length of the body’s interconnective chain of muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
With the addition of 2Toms’ blister prevention, chafing, skin guard and odor eliminator products to Medi-Dyne’s array of cushioning, support, stretching, strengthening and massage products, Medi-Dyne provides a compelling selection of products that offer not just immediate pain relief but also the long term solutions that eliminate the actual cause of the pain.
Medi-Dyne Healthcare Products is a global company dedicated to providing innovations in pain relief and prevention. Medi-Dyne’s contributions include over sixty patented foot care, knee, blister care, stretching and strengthening innovations.
2Toms products and Medi-Dyne products are made in the USA.
