FARGO – Casey McCarty constantly rides the hoverboard he won last month from a dorm raffle at North Dakota State University.
He got the hang of it right away and hasn't fallen off the self-balancing, two-wheeled device. But he's seen friends and even his mother take a tumble attempting to use the small board that scoots and spins around.
"I definitely could understand how people would be hurt on it," the 18-year-old said.
Sanford Health in Fargo hasn't logged any hoverboard injuries, a fact that surprised pediatric surgeon Dr. Scott Engum considering the device's popularity as a Christmas gift. He checked with emergency room doctors and the trauma registry to verify this.
But that could be a product of our climate - the devices aren't designed for snow and ice.
Engum worries it's just a matter of time before the wrist fractures, back injuries and blows to the head that have been reported across the country start to become an issue here.
Popular present
Epic Technologies in south Fargo started carrying two models of hoverboards just in time for the holiday season. Owner James Beck estimates he sold a few dozen - at $479 or $579 apiece - between his stores in Fargo and Bismarck.
He doesn't like the popular name of the devices, hoverboards, because they don't hover and instead roll around on two motorized wheels. It's more like a personal Segway without the handlebar, he said, and he prefers to call them "smart balance wheels."

Yes, floting or 2 tyers hoverboard may cause you injury if you do not play it with safety so in that case I would suggest you to go with https://hoverboardsguide.com/ [hoverboardsguide.com] which is a compact scooter and with a good motified handle to give you a proper handling support though
