Having a Segway can be essential for those who need new and creative ways to get themselves around. These single person moves are used both recreationally as well as for emergency medical services such as paramedics and police. These new and used Segways are available in different types and sizes, and eBay makes it easy to browse them all in one place.

Uses for a Segway

This scooter could be used by those with mobility issues, as well as by those who are disabled. At its core, it is a self-balancing standing wheelchair. It is also commonly used for jobs that would require an excessive amount of walking, such as a street policeman or other on ground security measures. Electric scooters have been recommended for those who have mobility issues, even though they cannot be officially marketed for medical uses yet. Another common use for this electric scooter could be as a personal vehicle in cities with high walkability scores. Riding on a Segway is intuitive with a quick learning curve, allowing them to be used for sightseeing tours that are too long to walk.

How does this product safely work and stay upright?

The "inverted pendulum" is the basis of the scooter's design. As there is an unbalanced weight (the human) at the top of the pendulum, the scooter uses its technology to balance this pendulum to keep itself, along with the rider, upright. The technology used includes gyroscopes and tilt sensors that move the wheels forward or backward to balance the weight automatically.
