Default Wheelchair user shooting HFT

I am slightly different to the majority who shoot HFT as I am a full time wheelchair user.
I live and shoot in Scotland and will do my very best to shoot all courses that I can.
Balance is an issue as I have a spinal cord injury and have lost the use of some of my abdominal muscles although I am reasonably strong in my arms.

My wheelchair is what is termed as energy efficient and doesn’t have arm rest on it. When I shoot, obviously all of my shots are from a sitting position. Depending on the terrain and the angle the chair is at I can sometimes rest my elbow on my tyre (for supported shots)

I was wondering if I would be able to adapt something to put on my chair so that I could use when others are taking prone shots.

The last thing I want to do is cheat so I thought I would ask the question before trying to develop anything.

What I was thinking about was trying to attach a mono-pod or something similar if allowed.

Any information or guidance would really be appreciated.
