Retractable tripod wheels

Hi all,
I recently injured my hand and have found I need an easier way of moving my visual setup.
I've considered scoperoller, but don't really want the tripod permanently on wheels, particularly when viewing.
I've also looked at JMI dollies, but they seem a bit bulky and unsightly.
Just wondering if anyone has used or is aware of retractable castors attached to a tripod? I have them on a table saw and like simply using my foot to engage/disengage the wheels e.g. To work on a tripod the castors would have to be angled to offset the tripod leg angle, and fixed to the leg somehow.
Do you think this could be done?
