As rural docs we can't always travel to a sim-lab each month. Yet it's a well known fact that humans learn and retain more if we review complex concepts and practice regularly and on an ongoing basis.

Prior to moving the Double, check segway location in the ground-cam for obstacles.
Double may be parked in its charging dock. (Be sure to drive straight out to clear, before turning.)
As an observer, in order to mute yourself you will need to use your computer's system preferences.
For MacOS users: System Preferences -> Sound. On Input tab reduce your microphone's Input Volume to zero (see sample image).
Keep your sound control window handy as during debrief etc, you may wish to be able to speak.
