    Hello sford
    I have a friend who is blind and he has several alarms in his home
    One of them alarms him when the fridge door is left open
    he got it from the RNIB
    you may find this website handy

    Best of luck

    It would also probably help to tilt the fridge back a bit more, so the door has a greater tendency to close by itself. Most fridges have adjustable front feet, or you could insert a strip of wood or some other spacer.

    Probably a 2 person job to make sure you don't flatten your fingers!

    very interesting. I've seen products that have this function at the hospital. It would be great to implement something similar at someone's home refrigerator.
