    I do think the three wheel design would be better/best. I am wondering about the stability, I would imagine if the back wheels were wide enough in combination with a shorter wheel base it would be rock solid.? What about tipping over?

    I'll try to post a pic, but remember mine is a rebuild and not from scratch. It is not tippy unless you reach for the floor at a forward angle, but in normal use, it's pretty darn stable. I thought there would be more room for a footrest, and maybe there is, instead I use a chair with one when I need it. Click image for larger version

    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.
