Default Re: Paralyzed dog rear wheels motor assist?

Maybe leather elbow pads would help. I've heard of cordless drill friction drives for very low gearing. Different diameter drive wheels in the chuck and trigger position equals varied speeds. Could be activated with a sensitive switch triggered by one of her regular movements when she wants to travel and stop. I don't think it would take long to learn what makes it move or not. Hate to see a naturally active pet/friend/family member immobilized when we have all these great tools and fab skills available.
