Does anybody have any experience with or recommendations for camera tripods/mounts for individuals in wheelchairs?

I teach a digital media class that has a strong focus on photography and video.
This semester I have two students who are in motorized wheelchairs. They have very limited hand and arm strength/movement.
I would like to devise a system whereby I can quickly mount a camera on an adjustable arm directly to their chair.
The shutter button is no problem, I'll pick up a cable release. We'll be using SLRs with live view so the viewfinder is not necessary either.
I'd love input from anyone who is in a chair or has worked with individuals in wheelchairs - or even from gear junkies who know just what I need.
I have access to a complete welding/machine shop and I'm not adverse to minor fabrication, however time is money so I'd prefer to buy off the shelf.
