How difficult is it to install a Glidesaddle?
Mounting a GlideSaddle Frame takes about 10 minutes with the right tools. Please Note that 4 and a 5 mm Allen wrenchs that are requied to install the GlideSaddle seat are included with the seat when purchased in Europe together with the 4 mounting screws. All rider adjustments on the SegSaddle can be made with the 4 mm Allen wrench. The seat can be removed with both the 4mm and 5mm Allen wrenches.Limitations on who can ride the GlideSaddle
You must be able to get on and off the GlideSaddle equipped Segway.
You must be prepared to deal with a safety shutdown. A safety shutdown gives you 10 seconds to get off the Segway before it falls over.
You must be able to control the LeanSteer Frame (handlebar) and shift it from side to side to control the steering or turning of the Segway.
You must be able to stay in the “saddle”. You need the core strength to hold your position on the GlideSaddle. If you slip off the Seat, you will fall.
To control the Segway you must be able to move your center of gravity by leaning forward and back. A rapid stop can require leaning backward aggressively. If you can’t control yourself while leaning forward and back, you will not be able to control the Segway.
If you can’t survive a fall, you have no business getting on a Segway. There are too many ways to fall on a Segway. (We’ve found a few, curbs, walls, mud...)
- Neither the Segway nor the GlideSaddle is approved for use as a medical device by any United States or European Union regulatory agency.
Segway's cannot be marketed in the US or European Union as medical devices. Johnson & Johnson claims exclusive rights to the medical uses of the balancing technology found in the iBOT and Segway PT. Dean Kamen the inventor of the electric, self-balancing human transporter sold the medical rights to the technology of the IBOT, a very stable and mobile powered wheelchair, to Johnson & Johnson
