ClipDifferent is the parent company to a product currently advertised under the brand name of “ClipDifferent Pro Nail Clipper.”
It’s founded by Thomas “TJ” McMullen III and geared towards individuals with disabilities, such as Arthritis, MS or Parkinsons — though anyone could use it.
“The market is real and it’s significant. These neglected markets provided the motivation for creating ClipDifferent,” reads the company marketing materials.
“Unlike using a metal nail clipper which snaps nails or an electric grinder to file down nails, the Pro employs surgical-grade stainless steel blades to cut nails which gives user a safe, effortless and smooth nail trimming experience, no matter your physical ability. It also allows a user with one hand to both operate and trim the nails on that one hand. The Pro catches fingernails in a drawer so there is no mess and will last a lifetime.
The company was founded in 2017 according to the disclosure and is a semifinalist in this years Minnesota Cup Business plan competition.
