I had looked at several models of tables before selecting this model. For the price, brand and durability, this product seemed to offer me the most. The product is well made with quality stiching, welding, and craftmanship. I was surprised at just how heavily made the appliance was when it arrived. The assembly was rather easy and fast with clear instructions and organized part labels and bags. Some reviews pointed out how this product was comfortable to use on your ankles when hanging upside down. I think a key to the comfort is relaxing your ankles when inverted and trusting the machine to do what it was designed to do. The ankle pads are quite comfortable, if you remember to relax your ankles and point your toes to the sky when hanging upside down. My chiropractor had told me that the machine would serve well to release the locking discs that I have in my lower back. Since using the machine, the pain in my back and the irritation of the nerves, which would become numb or pinched from the locking discs, has virtually gone away for me. I notice I even sleep better. Naturally you would consult your doctor before using such a product to assure it is meant for you as well.
The main red flag for 2 stars on safety for this product was the box used for shipping. The box was marked as a heavy item for lifting, but one still has to move the box to the location appropriate for assembly. The highly cumbersome, 90 some pound box had no handles built into it and the slippery, heavy cardboard was a challenge considering I live alone. Perhaps I could have opened the box at the delivery point and carried in the pieces a few at a time. If the delivery would have happened on a rainy day, I would have had a large, heavy mess to deal with...There were a few holes in the cardboard from the box being dragged, dropped or thrown during transit.... luckily no parts were lost. Overall, the product is awesome, but keep in mind the size of the unit is large to do the job it needs to do. A heavy and sturdy appliance mean quality, just plan for the box when it arrives. A solid and great buy for the average or bigger guy.... I wouldnt give mine up for anything... :)
I was amazed at how much relief I got after just a few days.The only problem I had was somehow during shipment the backrest had a tear in it.so I called the company where it was made and no problem they said they would send out a new backrest the next day.
I bought this to help me get rid of a chronic
sinus infection. "Going batty" for 20 minutes
a day has done the trick in just a few days.
It is also a great way to stretch the spine
and relax. I would recommend this product
to anyone for health maintenance. One needs
good comfortable shoes to keep the feet
from losing circulation. I find it helps to just
jiggle the feet once in a while.
My wife and I both use this device. She has to adjust the bench for her shorter height and this is easily done. We both find that a gentle stretch does provide some relief of back tension. The overall effect is similar to an inversion table without having to hang upside down.
I have been using this product for three weeks, about three times a day for 2 minute sessions. I've been suffering from extreme sciatica for 4 months. Since I've been 'inverting' I have felt an improvement from day to day. I like the fact that I 'invert' FORWARD on this apparatus, and hang by the thighs, not the feet. (Less stress put on legs.)
I had 'researched' for an inversion apparatus. Overstock sells this item for about $100 less than the EXACT item sold at any other website, plus the other sites add a shipping charge on top of their already higher prices.
I'm very pleased with my purchase from Overstock!!
Easy to assemble, very sturdy and well designed. Adjustments are a snap. Provided relief from back pain and tightness from the first use. Foot holders very comfortable. Don't spend more $ as this unit does the job at a rock bottom price.
At 67 - I'm not getting any younger chronologically speaking. Although I am still in good physical and mental shape - gravity has taken it's share of "liberties" with my body - especially my lower back. Being in the Medical Field for many years - I shy away from medications of ANY kind. I would rather seek out alternative means to help with time related ailments - like the common Osteoarthritis and its associated inconveniences like lower back pain.
I have wanted to try inversion therapy for some time now - but never really did much about it until now. After seeing that "old guy" and his brand of Inversion bed on TV one day - I decided to give it a try and go shopping for one of these "contraptions" on OVERSTOCK.COM. I'm glad I finally did!!
To begin with - it arrived in less than a week. 3 days to my location - to be exact!! The box arrived at my door weighing 85 pounds. Nice flat sturdy box that was easy to unpack and put together. The instructions are detailed and very explicit - with pictures as well as written instructions. Everything you need is in the box - including the few tools (wrenches - Phillips Screwdriver etc) - that you need. Only takes about 15 to 30 minutes and you have it done and ready to use!
I must admit that first time in it I was hesitant to use - simply because standing on your head is not natural. I visioned having to call 911 with - "Help - I am upside down and I can't get up!!!!" - LOL
But after getting on and feeling how sturdy it was - I immediately felt safe and secure. It does NOT even wiggle the least bit. The frame is very heavy gauge - as is the rest of the machine. It is EXTREMELY well built and Solid as a rock. The materials used are TOP Notch. It is also well balanced once your body is in it. There is NO "give" or wobble of any kind to the machine itself. This is a professional GYM quality piece of equipment.
The padded ankle supports are firm, secure and easy to adjust. The same hold true for the foam padded section that you lay on. It is really comfortable to lay on. The entire bed itself can also be adjusted precisely to your height with an easily accessible lever that locks firmly into place. The Hand grasp bar is large and easily accessible in any position or angle - so there is no worry that once you get into a position - you would not be able to get out. So forget 911.
The angle limiting strap is a nice feature, and it the entire machine traverses through it's many angles in a liquid smooth - non jerky motion - like a bed that is precisely balanced - and rocks gently. At NO time do you feel unsafe at all. I started at a 30 degree angle just to be safe - then progressed quickly to full upside down once I got used to feel of the equipment. That is a breeze.
Once you are relaxed - you can almost feel your back start to straighten re-align - and the pressure of many years of normal gravity ease and disappear. It doesn't take long before you can see the difference this equipment makes. The heated back pad is just icing on the cake - and is heavenly!! And once you are done - and upright again - you can feel the effects for hours and days. I use this 15 minutes twice a day right now - and the difference it has made in my life is amazing!
The only pain medication I ever used was Excedrin - but I don't even need that anymore. Even my knee joints feel better! My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner!! Personally - I HIGHLY recommend!!
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,
Received my table in the normal fast & reliable delivery timing, that I have grown accustomed to from O. I just wish there was a way to waive the signature on delivery when ordering. Really didn't need the instructions to put it together, after some of the furniture pieces that I have gotten. Within a couple of days I felt more flexibility. Also learned NOT to over do it & reattached the restraining strap. The unit is very sturdy & the balance is impressive. Table tilts just by raising my arms over my head. Just working my abs (sit-ups) gets me back to the upright position, without having to use the handles. The ankle/foot padding is comfortable while in use. Changing height adjustment is a snap too. Very satisfied....
We ordered the teeter hang up and gravity boots at the same time. Love the teeter hang up! We've not used the gravity boots much yet because they are really most necessary for full inversion, and we've not moved up to "full inversion" yet. They can be used at less than full inversion too, and really do help relieve stress on ankles. They also put a slight bend in knees, which also reduces stress.
For 60 degree inversion, we've not used them much, only because they take a little more time to get on than simply slipping into the regular ankle grips. I do recommend them though, for the most comfort.
The rack was a good purchase but I did not like having to buy it seperately from the gravity boots. I wish it all came as a package. Due to this I would probably recommend to buy the all in one tilting table.
Die Teeter Gravity Boots gab es zu meiner Bestellzeit leider nicht in Deutschland zu kaufen, deswegen habe ich die Teeter Gravity Boots hier über diesen Shop gekauft..., alles lief super perfekt ab, kann diese Firma nur empfehlen..., weiter so :-), habe genau 11 Tage gewartet, was will man mehr :-)
Zu den Teeter Gravity Boots, kann ich nur schreiben, dass ich schon andere Boots in Stahlausführung getestet habe und nur diese (Teeter Gravity Boots ) sind in meinen Augen die Besten , ich kann die Teeter Gravity Boots mit bestem Gewissen weiterempfehlen :-)
Received this product in a timely manner. From the moment I placed the order was a few short days and able to use immediately. Inversion table is of quality very sturdy I myself am 5'11" weigh 240lbs. I have only great things to say and would absolutly recommend this product
