Created in 1995, this universally designed, refrigerator was equipped with back-lit drawers, which made it very convenient for mobility impaired users, like those seated in a wheelchair, to be able to access the drawer contents without having to perform awkward, or difficult body positioning. This appliance had the appearance of kitchen cabinetry. By creating such universally accommodating designs, all users would benefit, which meant those with, as well as those without mobility impairments.
