Default Magnetic shirt buttons

Not sure if this has been posted already, but I just saw it recently on CNN (Battle with Parkinson's inspires winning shirt). It's a line of dress shirts with magnets behind the buttons: the magnets 'stick' and hold the shirt together, while the buttons make it look like a traditional button-front shirt. The shirts were created by the wife of a man with Parkinsons, but it seems like this innovation would be useful for PALS, too.

Great innovation! That can be so useful both for the person needing help as well as the caregivers. Yasmin

It seems that they are only taking US orders at present from their website. As I live in Canada, Iím going to contact them about getting an order sent to Canada. Or, possibly Iíll get a US friend to order it for me and then send it to me.
