When my kids would crash on a bike, I'd ask if they had a bone sticking out. No? OK. Let's try again.

I'm thinking if the thread starter can't balance on a bike yet, then take the "balance bike" approach that little kids are starting with now, instead of training wheels.
Find a local bike shop that might be sympathetic (unlike me! ha!) to remove the crankset and chain and make an adult sized balance bike.
That's how bikes started over 100 years ago..... see number 11.
