My parents have a player piano that is around 40 years old. I can't remember the brand name, but it seems like it was "Harman" or Karman" or something like that.

Anyway, being 70 years old, my mother wears herself out after about half a song and would love to get the piano converted so that either a motor could drive the pedals or perhaps it supplied it's own compressed air. Is this possible? An email reply would be great! Thank you.
