Presuming that by paraplegic you mean that your impairment is focused on the lower extremities, virtually all of the interfaces for music technology depend on the hands/fingers:

eg mouse, trackpad, QWERTY keyboard, MIDI keyboard, APC40, Launchpad, iPad Apps (TouchAble etc).

If you you have difficulty using your hand/fingers too, then this may be more of a challenge...

iPad with TouchAble?

Or a Laptop?

Otherwise, APC on lap with some sort of wireless USB to your computer? Sure it exists, try a search - APC is USB 'B' to USB 'A' connection on computer.

if you can afford an iPad then that's the way to go. Completely wireless and accessible with TouchAble. check out this video to see how it works. There's drum pads, keyboard, and control of effects and session view. http://touch-able.com/Site/touchable.html
