This update is specifically targeted to improve the robustness of the sequoia caster-assembly.

The front casters cannot fall of the Sequoia system, since the wheel locking/swivel control rod runs through the caster shaft. If the bolt comes out, the caster may have functional issues, but will not fall out of the system base, and therefore, not tip over towards the customer. If a bolt comes out of a rear caster, and somehow the caster falls out, it will very likely not tip the system. Most of the weight of the Sequoia (chassis, circuit boards, up/down module & control panel, display monitor) are on the front side of the system, keeping most of the weight on the front two casters. The loss of one wheel in the back, the system will still have most of its weight on the three remaining wheels.
