TEETER Hang Ups EP-950

If you've never heard of inversion therapy, you're not alone! Many people have never heard of this natural, alternative therapy before. Basically, inversion therapy is hanging upside down, or almost upside down, and, hopefully, improving your health as a result. The idea is that the reduction of pressure on various parts of the body will help you get some relief from issues such as back pain, hip pain and other ailments.

But that's not all the inversion table is used for -- it can increase flexibility, improve posture, and assist with circulation. Of course, inversion therapy is not necessarily a healthy or wise endeavor for everyone, and if you've already got issues with your blood pressure, diseases of the eye, or are already pregnant, you should consult with a physician before attempting inversion therapy on your own. Inversion therapy is also said to aid with other issues of a psychological nature.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-950

Teeter is one of the best known, best selling and highest rated Inversion Therapy tables available. This particular model, the Hang Ups EP 950, has a ratchet ankle lock feature and you can easily pre-set your angles at twenty, forty or sixty degrees. This Teeter supports weights up to 300 lbs, heights between 4'8 and 6'6, measures 48 x 61 x 27 inches and comes with a five yr. warranty. The inversion table itself weighs 74 lbs.


Ironman Gravity 1000

This is the Ironman Gravity 1000 inversion table, another highly popular model for inversion therapy. This model is quite a bit less expensive than the previous model, as you can see. Maximum inversion capability is 90 degrees and the device can hold up to 300 lbs. It only weighs 46 lbs and you can fold it easily to store it when it's not in use. It measures 25 x 62 x 49 inchesand features extra long safety handles so you can get upright in a hurry if feel the need.

Teeter Hang Ups EP 550

Another popular Teeter model which looks similar to the first model listed, but this one costs a bit less. The maximum weight capacity is still 300 lbs and it measures 48 x 27 x 61 inches and weighs 68 lbs. It's also similar in that you can adjust it to twenty, forty and sixty degrees. Also, tall folk need not worry, as it can support people of heights up to 6 foot 6. Same 5 year warranty, too.

Body Champ IT8070

Body Champ makes a good inversion table as well, and the Body Champ IT8070 model is well-liked and popular. The height range is 4'7 to 6'8, so if you're really up there in height and can't fit on one of the other models, this may be what you're looking for. However, you'll need to weigh less than you might with the previous inversion tables, because this one only supports up to 250 lbs of weight. It measures 55.5 by 29.5 by 57.8 inches and it weighs about 50 lbs. Folds up for easy storage.

FitPro 2010 Deluxe

The price on this is greatly reduced! This is the FitPro 2010 Deluxe inversion therapy table. It can support people between the heights of 4'10 and 6'6 as long as their weight does not exceed 300 lbs. When the (included) safety strap is in use this inversion table can invert to 160 degrees, or 180 degrees if the safety strap is not in use.
