    Replace caster wheels with omnidirectional ball wheels

    You know those spheres, kind of like ball bearings, that can roll in any direction?

    Is there any way to replace the caster wheels in a wheelchair with such ball-wheels? Where would you get ones of appropriate size?

    Google omniwheel, click on "Images"
    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.

      They would have to only be used on clean, smooth surfaces, in my opinion. Any dirt, grime, sticky substance, etc. You know, everything us wheelchair users are constantly encountering, would prevent them from working properly.
