I received information on MagnaReady and wanted to share it with my readers. No compensation was received. I think this is a neat idea and wish there were also MagnaReady pants. I have a family member who deals with limited mobility and is wheelchair bound.
Aging can be a difficult process. First off, none of us want it to happen. But more importantly, as we grow older daily wear and tear takes a toll as our health and bodies deteriorate and simple tasks like getting dressed in the morning become difficult to accomplish.
When her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease before the age of 50 and his loss of mobility made it impossible for him to button his dress shirts, Maura Horton realized a need for a fashionable clothing line people with limited mobility from Parkinson’s, MS, arthritis and those recovering from surgery could use to dress independently. She created MagnaReady, the first fashionable dress shirts infused with a magnetic closure system, solves the problem of difficult to navigate buttons making dressing independently a possibility again.
Hidden inside the placket of a MagnaReady shirt are powerful magnets that link together for a secure closure. Decorative buttons grace the exterior of MagnaReady shirts for a crisp and professional appearance without the hassle of manipulating tiny buttons into buttonholes.
“When my husband was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s, the news was astonishing, and we thought that it would take some time for the disease to take a toll. He was in good physical shape and worked out for hours every day,” said MagnaReady CEO Maura Horton. “But, when he came home from being on the road with the college football team he coached and told me he was unable to button his dress shirt without help, I knew I had to use my background in the fashion industry to find a solution for him.
After several rounds of development, the MagnaReady Stress-Free Shirting solution was born. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to create a shirt that not only gives my husband his independence back, but that can change the lives of millions of people. MagnaReady allows people with limited mobility to regain a skill most of us take for granted every day, the ability to simply get dressed in the morning.”
