Handle on door as door closer

A handle on the door makes it possible for a wheelchair user to close the door after entering or leaving room

A 30 cm long grab bar sits on the door. The handle is mounted at an angle.
When the user closes the door behind him he twists backward, grasps the handle and pulls the door toward himself.
