I'll try and put it in a clearer form later on - I think it will be a worthwhile discussion from both ends

Some little old lady with a sociopath streak might very well take it out horribly on patients in a nursing home environment, but you would never think of her that way.

Yes, self defense is not a fair fight. You can go poke eyes and bite the groin, but remember that your opponent is also able to do that. He might have even better mentality to maim someone since he's the one who is attacking in the first place. Also muggers and such are usually living a life where actual violence is daily. They might not be trained martial artists, but they sure know how to fight on streets. Thinking that they would fight like little zombie girls is not a good starting point to create a SD-system for anyone. Also try to keep in mind that in fights people tend to be scared or exited, meaning their senses are acting in different way and they don't feel pain so well.
You seem to be quite negative to receive any critique to your system. Please open your mind and try to realize what these people are trying to tell you. I'm pretty sure that this is the far best wheelchair defense system that people here have seen. Hopefully you can develop it even better.
Well, if these forums have an expert on the matter he's already spoken....

What am I?:
I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.
I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.
That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:
JohnnyCache's "retort" proving how much he knows about medicine and geography and First World countries:
Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.
I am happy to get constructive input and suggestions on my ideas which are detailed on the www.not-me.org website.
