Severe fractures while driving a Segway personal transporter
We present two cases of patients who sustained severe fractures while driving a Segway in an amusement park. The first, a 59-year-old man, had a displaced femoral neck fracture operated with three screws. After two and a half months he had a total hip replacement. After three weeks he had another replacement due to infection. The second, a 26-year-old male, had a displaced femoral neck fracture operated with three screws. The fracture healed uneventfully. The Segway’s legal position, in Denmark, is like bicycles. For statistics, we have specific codes for trauma with a Segway.
