 They are made by different companies so they are often called different names. GYROSCOPE RIDE is the most common name. I tried typing this into
www.google.com and got loads of
good results. They are quite costly.
I suggest you contact someone with one of these to rent and hopefully they will give you they details of the company that they purchased it from.
Heres a few links.
