A glitch in the device's software means the machines, which cost up to $5,500 may unexpectedly change direction, causing riders to fall off.All 23,500 personal transporters - formerly known as human transporters - are being recalled.
Segway has had reports of six accidents causing head and wrist injuries. The repairs will be carried out at service centres around the world.

George W Bush once fell off a Segway, while Tony Blair was given one by the King of Jordan.
