Just a quick note to "recycling occupational therapist": The Segway was never intended to replace walking. It replaces driving. And at an energy equivalency of 450 miles to the gallon, it IS a clean, green, eco-friendly machine. It's also a lot of fun and can go 24 miles on a single charge...further than most "therapists" walk for exercise.
