Inversion Table Reviews 2014
Who Produces the Best Inversion Table on the Market Today?
To try to simplify the process, I have separated out the major manufacturers, so you will find the following sections:
Each will contain only the best inversion tables with the highest feedback scores.
I'm sure you want to purchase one of the best inversion tables for your money, but how do you know which is the best inversion table for you. Obviously finding inversion table reviews online is a way to go, however this isn't always as easy as it sounds. Let's face it, the people who are selling inversion tables are probably going to say anything to get you to purchase their model.
It therefore makes sense to listen to people who have parted with their own cash to own what they believe is the best inversion table for them. Any review they provide for the inversion table they have used will reflect the experience they have had.
Using this principle that the best people to provide inversion table reviews are owners, I have come up with the list below. The criterion for inclusion is that the average inversion table rating must be at LEAST 4 out of 5. Each model will be displayed with their rating and a copy of a customer's review.
With these unbiased inversion table reviews, I'm sure you will be able to find the best inversion table for you.
Below you will find the very best inversion tables displayed in rating order (but remember even the lowest score is still at least a 4 out of 5)!
But first a bit of the science behind why inversion tables are so effective.
Exactly How Inversion Tables Can Help You.
This short video goes into the science of why inversion tables can be so helpful especially if you are suffering with your back.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-960 - A Rating of 5 out of 5!!
"This table is well built and easy to put together. I have been suffering with sciatica for twenty years and hanging does seem to help. I have tried every traction device on the market and this is the only one that actually works. Give it a try." - Jamie K.
Teeter Hang Ups EP 560 - A Rating of 5 out of 5
"I have a lumbar herniated disc (L3-4) and something else going on with my L-5/S-1 area. I experience horribly painful sciatica as well as leg numbness on a regular basis. My lower back feels locked up when I spend too much time sitting or too much time in exertion mode. I finally went to see a pain management doctor who said his patients report a lot of relief with use of an inversion table. He told me not to buy the cheapest one, but don't go out and spend $1,000 either. I had seen commercials for this model and my husband found it at Sports Chalet where we were able to get 10% off the $299 price (and purchase the already assembled floor model that hadn't been used, another plus!).
I've used it for 3 days and the relief I've experienced is amazing! I slowly invert to about 45 or 50 degrees and with some stretching I am able to self-adjust my lower back and hips. It produces immediate relief!
I recommend watching the CD that comes with it before just jumping right into it like I did! It's no fun swinging like a pendulum, fully inverted. The video explains how to set the height, responsiveness and foot height within the ankle supports. It truly works just like in the commercial through control by raising and lowering your arms. I love this thing!!! I'm here again to look for accessories." - Nancy L.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-950 - A Rating of 4.7 out of 5
"WOW! Talk about a satisfied customer. The EP-950 is a high quality product. I have suffered with a herniated disc and endured chronic back pain for years. I experienced relief after my first use of the inversion table and slept better that night than I had in years. For now, I invert on a daily basis for a few minutes and am close to being free of back pain. I sleep better and begin each morning with little or no back pain. Absolutely amazing! I told my family this really has been the best purchase I recall ever making! No buyer's remorse here." - Kevin D.M.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 - A Rating of 4.7 out of 5
"Let me start by saying that I am a waiter by trade. I work on my feet 8 to 13 hours a day. For a long time I thought about getting gravity boots. When I started to look for them I found more information on the inversion tables. However only one table had top reviews everywhere I looked. At almost 38 years old I have little time to purchase equipment that will simply waste my time and money, for that reason I dropped the top dollar for the Teeter Inversion Table. I LOVE IT. I've had it for about 5 or 6 months and I no longer have aching feet, my posture has improved 100% and my brain feels like its got the juice it needs.
Even with working out to stay in good shape my job takes a lot out of me, when you stand and walk for 10 hours straight for 12 years it catches up to you. With the TEETER it took about a month of hanging on the table after every shift and the pain is GONE! I now get on the table about twice a week or more if necessary but I LOVE IT. IF THERE EVER WAS A FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH HERE IT IS. If you cant walk you cant run and sometimes even lifting weights can be cumbersome. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AS PART OF A MORE COMPLETE HEALTH AND WORKOUT SYSTEM! " - David C.

Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 Sport - A Rating og 4.6 out of 5
"If, like me, you are reading reviews wondering if this is the path you want to take, STOP RIGHT HERE! I suffered from a pinched nerve in my spine. Agonizing. When the pain hits, your whole world compresses down to a ball of unspeakable pain. Your eyes clamp shut, your knees fold, all you know is the pain! I researched for hours, looking for the magic to end the pain! No offence to 'mechanical adjustment' doctors, they have their place, but this, THIS, fixed everything! I purchased the Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 Sport, and the very first use bought relief! When you go to the chiropactor right-as-rain, and you leave in pain, it's time for another answer! After two weeks on my Teeter I'm all better! No more pain! No more Dr. bills! Imagine the money I saved by shopping at Amazon! Do yourself a favor, and look into this. The Sport includes the optional 'ski boots', and man, am I glad I purchased the outfit I did! Now for the disclaimer: This review wasn't underwritten by anyone. The Teeter rocks! Best thing I ever did for myself. (Sorry about all of the exlamation points, but the relief is prieless!)" - Danedanex

Ironman Gravity 4000 - A Rating of 4.7 out of 5
"I did quite a bit of research on inversion tables in this price range. I chose this one because it has a solid back, molded ankle holders, and it folds up. So, I made the purchase and crossed my fingers. Now that I have been using it for a few weeks I am certain that I made the best choice. It was not hard to assemble like many other reviews who bought other brands have mentioned. The solid back is very comfortable, and I use the lumbar pillow for added comfort. It does not fold up very much, and is not easy to move on carpet, but that is a matter of friction and has nothing to do with this well made machine. It is a very solid device, and I have no worries of malfunction or getting hurt. The recommendations for use that comes with the manual are conservative and make sense. The molded ankle holders are very comfortable. Many reviewers of other tables talk about the discomfort of the rollers, and the need to wear boots or to buy additional gravity boots to use in place of the rollers. Not the case here. In fact, I often use it without shoes, and I find that I don't have to tighten the ankle holders to a point of discomfort. The release is very easy to opperate as well. I can't think of one complaint, and I highly recommend this product, " - K.Darling
Ironman LX300 - A Rating of 4.5 out of 5
"After much research,I opted for the Ironman LX300(1)Because of the name (I have an elliptical that I have been using for 5 days a week for years & (2) The price.I wasn't dissapointed the structure is sound.Assembly was extremely simple,between 20-30 minutes on my own.Not much more to say really.It did the job better than I could have dreamed.I had used an inversion table once at a friends.The ankle straps really hurt me.Not with the Ironman.A pleasure,very comfortable. " - Len C.
Ironman Gravity 1000 - A Rating of 4.5 out of 5
"My wife and I recently purchased the Ironman 1000 from Amazon and received it in less than a week. Assembly was easy and the machine is very solidly built. My wife and I had experienced lower back pain, before getting the Ironman, and had been to the chiropractor a few times for adjustments. I have also had a pinched nerve in my left leg for about 3-4 months. I am 51 years old and have noticed after using the Ironman for less than a week have gained 3/8 of an inch in height. Our backs feel great and no longer have the pinched nerve problem. We now feel that we have more freedom of movement without pain and our backs are getting back to normal. Thanks Ironman for a wonderful product!" - Thomas F.
Ironman Gravity 2000 - A Rating of 4.6 out of 5
"There were so many inversion tables to choose from, it took me several weeks to decide which one to purchase. Finally, I selected the Ironman Gravity 2000. I was worried that the low price would be an indicator of lesser quality, but that was not the case. It took approximately 45 minutes for my husband and me to assemble. The ankle supports and padded back are extremely comfortable and after using the table twice a day for 2 weeks my back is feeling quite better. I'm glad I made the right choice. " - Julie M.P.
Ironman ATIS 1000 AB Training System - A Rating of 4.4 out of 5
"I purchased this inversion table 6 months ago. All my research lead me to this table because of the reviews I read about it's durability, and I found it to be the fairest price as well. It has been a wonderful tool in helping to strengthen my back. The product is fabulously designed, and very durable. I also love that I can actually strength train with it as well. Very easy to do low impact sit-ups while still making you have to do the sit-up. Great product great price highly recommend to someone searching for a great priced inversion table. Only downfall is the lack of instruction for first time users of an inversion table. " - Cravesno

Body Power Deluxe Seated Inversion System - A Rating of 4.9 out of 5
"I have had back pain since I was 13 years old. I am now 27 and have tried everything that doctors have ever recommended....I have been on more medication than I can count, gone to physical therapy more times than I can remember and recently I had to have an epidural injection of steroids to help with the pain. The doctor that preformed this procedure also recommended that I find an inversion table. So the very first thing I did following the procedure was find one online, which was not easy considering how much pain medication I was on at the time. After reading reviews with one eye open I chose this one even though it was twice what I really wanted to spend. I got it less than a week later and after taking an hour to assemble it I finally felt a real difference after using it for just 5 minutes. I couldn't be happier and every member of my family is dying to use it. I really like that it starts in a seated position and I wouldn't be able to use it if it wasn't. It's so easy to lye back and just as easy to sit back up, all it takes is a swing of your arms to do either one. I don't like shopping online because I can't see the product first but this is the best purchase I have ever made online or in a store. I recommend if you have any kind of back issue that an inversion table would help, buy this one, it is worth every penny! " - A.C.Clark
Body Max Gravity Inversion System - A Rating of 4.4 out of 5
"I did a lot of research on the web before ordering this one. I was a bit worried since there were at the time only two reviews, but it encompassed everything I was looking for. I liked the canvas back and the foot holder. It wasn't too hard to set up, I enlisted a helper and had it done in less than an hour. The packaging was great! Very neat and organized. Nothing was missing, the directions were easy enough to follow and in English only... :) I would deffinately recommend this Inversion table. I would suggest when you get it out of the box to tighten any loose screws on the A-frame before you put it all together. It is very sturdy and holds me quite well, I weigh 185 pounds and am 5'8". You really can't beat the price either. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!" - CLou
Body Champ IT8070 - A Rating of 4.3 out of 5
"I bought this product 2 months ago,it arrived on time, it was easy to assemble. I ride a motorcycle and have had lower back pain for years after using the Body Champ the pain has all but disappeared. I checked out many inversion tables on the net and Amazon I chose the Body Champ because of the price and design. I use it twice daily for 4 minutes at a time, I highly recommend this product.... " - Larry I.M.
Body Max IT6000 - A Rating of 4.3 out of 5
"This inversion table really works wonders for me. As soon as I received the box - which is very very heavy - I read the instructions, layed out the pieces on the floor, and put it together myself. As a single, 60-year old woman, it was really quite easy. I did need 2 wrenches - one to hold the nuts and the other to tighten the screws. I generally visit my chiropractor for sciatic pain, but since stretching on the table 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night, I feel great and haven't had to go back. You can actually feel your vertebrae separating and realigning itself and your stomach muscles and internal organs stretch out as you are inverted from your ankles. It's also great for tall people - I'm 6' tall. I actually hang in my stocking feet and a long t-shirt -- the ankle padding is adequate where I feel so comfortable and relaxed -- I swear I could almost fall asleep. The price can't be beat - all the other tables I have tried are simply overpriced -- they have absolutely nothing extra to offer. BTW: this is my very first review for Amazon after many years of purchasing stuff online - the free shipping can't be beat." - B.B
Body Power ABI1600 Ab and Back Machine - A Rating of 4.1 out of 5
"I spent alot of time researching & reading reviews on different types of Inversion Tables, including the "Teeter". For the money I saved and the quality of the product, I can't say enough positive things about the Body Power AB & Back machine! It does exactly what it says it will do. The stretch relieves all that compression, and I use it faithfully every day for 10 minutes. My husband was very impressed by the workmanship that went into the product, and the easy of assembly. I have chronic lower back pain, and I love to walk every day, but my back just ain't what it used to be, so as soon as I make it back in from my 2-1/2 mile hike, I head right for the Inversion Table. It is relaxing and gives me total and immediate relief. I am amazed! I weigh 160 lbs., and my ankles are quite comfortable in the cushioned restraints. The Table itself gives support & comfort, as well. It's so easy to manuever, and just as easy to fold in half for compact wall storage.
I have not used the AB's part as much, because I am focusing on my lower back and don't want to put any strain on my back, than is necessary right now. But I will say that I love it so much, I told my Daughter about it, because she is suffering from a ruptured disc, and her Worker's Comp. Doctor was very enthusiatic about her use of this machine, so I ordered her one as well. She is very glad I did!" - Marty K.
