I seek a wall mounted wheelchair door access device similar to this shown here: http://www.power-access.com/door-opener-wall-switches.html
The device I seek is both a door opener wall switch activated by pressure (touching) and/or activated by waving a hand in front (touch free).
Does such a device exist?

AccessNSM door openers can be activated with a variety of door opener control wall-mount switches, designed to trigger with push-button pressure, or when the unit senses it has been touched.
Other options from Disability Systems

Are these suitable?

Thank you for tackling this question. I quickly browsed through all the links you provided. I could have easily missed the solution. I did not see a switch that worked both as a touch free and by pressure. Did one link in particular show a switch that did both?

Sorry, I misunderstood that the switch should be touch free and by pressure. I will check again.

I have not come across a hands free sensor that can be pressed as well. Perhaps another researcher will have better luck.

Good evening Bobbie- Thank you for looking around again. This will be quite a challenge if you haven't located the device I seek. I appreciate the effort.
