Maura Horton, CEO of MagnaReady, and who is also the wife of former NC State Football Coach Don Horton, said it was his desire for independence while suffering from Parkinson's disease that inspired her to come up with this unique solution, Fox News reported.

The disease had affected Don's hand's mobility so much that after one of the games he had to ask one of his players to button up his shirt.

Maura used her skills as a former kid's clothing designer to develop the shirts with buttons, and button holes, which were purely decorative.

She said that buttoning the shirts, which she created is as simple as lining up the magnets and hearing them click.
