Just like a regular inversion table, an inversion chair such as the Health Mark Pro is designed to decompress the spine, increase blood circulation and reduce muscle stress.
The chair set-up is also multi-functional since you can use it in a variety of different ways. In addition to traction, users can similarly perform all sorts of core building exercises as they would hanging completely upside down.
What are the Differences of an Inversion Chair VS Table?
The unique chair-like design, however, enables users to get the maximum gravity-assisted traction without having to hang upside down 100%. This means that there is less stress on the hips, knees and ankles plus less pressure on the head and eyes.
Although this may not matter to some people, to others this can be the deciding factor as to whether or not they can use inversion therapy.
You can’t find many inversion chairs available on the market as compared to traditional inversion tables. Plus, the Health Mark Pro is known for its ease of use.
If you want to use inversion to relieve back pain, you already understand that having a piece of equipment that is easy to get on and off of is one of the most important factors. Not to mention, this works as an important for safety.
Note: Instead of laying flat on your back, the chair enables you to invert in an ergonomically correct position with your knees above the hip flexors. This can actually give you a more relaxing and less stressful position for the body.
