Self opening-closing drawer Answered

I'm hoping someone can help.

I have a handicap that makes opening drawers and cupboards impossible via touch. Aside from foot. I've been trying to come up with a solution for this for a while now. 

I need something that takes up little, if any drawer space. Is relatively cheap (since it needs to be replicated across multiple locations). Can be opened/stopped/closed via a single foot pedal. And that will stop if it encounters some sort of obstruction.

Actuators that are able to open drawers to the size needed are very expensive, and I'm unsure if they have the stop function in case of blockage.

Anyone have any suggestions/

What do you consider expensive?

Can you illustrate your ideal solution?
