Tom ivascanin, vice chairman
Starting out with selling just a few units at a card table covered in a cloth with an old banner inside of a shopping centre, Tom, an Australian native, now has a successful multi-million-dollar global operation for pain relief with distributors around the world.
In 2010, Tom founded HiDow Australia. Tom and HiDow have tapped into enormous market growth on helping to ease pain. During a trip to Las Vegas, Tom discovered the PainPod and obtained the distribution rights.
HiDow medical devices are hands-free and known as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve) and EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) technology for non-invasive stimulation intended to relieve pain associated with trauma, surgery, musculoskeletal problems, bursitis, dental problems, labor and more.
HiDow medical devices have been featured on Forbes Magazine, A Current Affair and Today Tonight since its launch in Australia in 2010. HiDow is included on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods as ARTG identifier (176 131. Class IIa Certificate Number: DV).
Tom's passion for helping others from abuse and trauma has compelled him to work with a variety of nonprofits and charities such as Gold Coast Charities, Paradise Kids and Hand of Hope in the USA. Tom is proud that the company’s success has allowed him to give back to the community. A dollar from every unit sold is donated to Gold Coast charities such as Paradise Kids. Tom’s company recently funded a school in one of the poorest areas of China and donated $150,000 to a charity called Hand of Hope. The Hand of Hope charity places children from prostitution rings in Third World countries into orphanages.
Whether he is working within the corporate world or with his friends living on the streets, Tom's goal is to relieve every aspect of pain as much as possible no matter the source. And he will continue to do so, one person at a time.
