Wing chun with modifications. But honestly you won't be able to do much against serious attack without weapons. I have a friend who has been in wheelchair his whole life and we have discussed some of these things a bit.

If your in a chair or on crutches you would most likely be knocked to the ground early.

I would suggest highly trained BIG dog plus multiple guns and knifes. The dog doesn't need to be more than a companion dog as long as it is big. A personal protection dog might be an option also.

A very sharp neck knife and a little training would be good, maybe some groundfighting.
Mindset is important, physical disabilities need not interfere with the ability to go ballistic with everything you have in a defensive situation.
