Why?

The handles look a little low like you will be leaning back a the whole ride.

Are you pulling it or being pulled?

You should build one where the seat spins around a la 'redneck joyrides'

 I  have a loved one who had foot Surgery,  4 weeks no walking, 6 months to recover.  Not much else I can do.  maybe It will cheer her up..

The car seat lets me balance the passenger perfect,adjust lumbar and back angle.
I need to add a foot rest
Yes,  the angle of the pull sticks needs some engineering,  it pulls easy even at the angle.  might be fun at bugapulooza.  SC
