Putting on clothes can sometimes already seem like an arduous day-to-day task. Adding on limited dexterity and mobility for those with disabilities, it then becomes stressful and can drive a person to lose their dignified independence by asking for help with this daily task.
Don Horton, a college football coach, found himself struggling to button his shirt one day because of Parkinson’s disease at an early age. Limited mobility is one of the side effects associated with Parkinson’s, and as someone who traveled regularly for business, his inability to dress himself up made him anxious. This is when Maura Horton, his wife, came up with a way to help him with his daily challenge. By adding magnets to the shirt, she created a product that brought back independence in his daily routine.That’s how Magnaready, the adaptive clothing line, was born in 2013.
