If you can't find a wheelchair. I've been told you can use skate board wheels and plastic tubing. I'm not exactly sure of the specs. but it might be cheaper and easier to find.

Skateboard dolly plans can be found on my site. http://members.aol.com/mrpher/
I suggest however using a wheelchair. Its so much easier. You dont have to lay any dolly track.

I am thinking about buying a glidecam 1000 instead... it costs about 500$ in europe but that way you can have more dynamic shots and still get smooth motion. I don't see how these people are putting a tripod on a wheelchair... maybe they do without tripod but I am not making a horror movie the camera needs to be at eye-level...

DO NOT BUY A GLIDECAM!!! Go here: www.vfx.co.nz/build.html
there are a bunch of plans for all types of equipment, even a homemade glidecam. save $- do it yourself!!!
