Tandem seat project

Looking for a recumbent seat for a tandem project for a friend. He is in wheelchair and has some limited arm and hand movement. My plan is to put the tandem seat on the back of my tandem and install some foot pegs for his feet. I would also use some kind of seat belt, and he could hold onto the bars. Thanks.

Have you looked at the Bilenky Viewpoint? Also if your "stoker" isn't pedaling you can have it setup with an ordinary single drivetrain.
