Screen (storm) doors with automatic closures

A quick learner from Lubbock, tx says:
I am disabled and have great difficulty opening a screen(storm) door as it hits my arm. (I use a walker). My arms are always covered with huge bruises. I have been told that's because I take blood thinner. I am looking for something to automatic capabilities like found in stores, etc but for a home.

It sounds like you want a storm door closer that opens the door when activated with a motion sensor. We do not have hardware like that, I'm afraid. I don't believe they make one that opens the storm door automatically. On a commercial door that costs thousands of dollars it makes sense, but on a storm door it is not cost effective. You may want to check with a local contractor, you may need something custom made.
