Do you want to do inversion therapy at home, but need a machine that can support tall or heavy people? This Ironman High Capacity Inversion Table is ultra-sturdy and can hold up to 350 lbs.
Advantages of the Ironman Gravity Inversion Table:
First, you can adjust the height to accommodate users up to 6 feet 6 inches tall. (Although shorter people can also invert on this bench too.)
Second, the frame itself has a wider design, so it feels very sturdy and safe. Plus, the steel tubes feature rubber stabilizing feet on the base to prevent any unexpected movement or slipping.
Not only is the thick backrest and wider frame designed to support greater weight, this Gravity table has specially-designed ankle cuffs as well. They provide a custom fit with extra cushioning, so they prevent pressure from building up around your ankles.
(When ankle brackets pinch your legs or put pressure on your feet, inversion gets uncomfortable. Thus, people will cut their sessions short, which doesn’t achieve great results.)
Furthermore, the backrest features 2.5″ thick memory foam with a removable lumbar support pad. Therefore, the cushioning conforms better to the shape of your back and spine.
And, the ankle cuffs feature a Surelock ankle ratchet system that you can control with the palm of your hand. In other words, it’s easy to reach, adjust and secure without having to contort your body.

Ironman Gravity 5000 VS the 4000, 3000, 2000 and 1000:
Ironman Gravity inversion tables come in different models, from 1000 through 5000. So, what are the differences?
First of all, the high capacity Gravity 4000 can support as much weight as the 5000 (350 lbs). However, it does not come with the patented AIRSOFT ankle holders.
Note: Although these custom-cushioned ankle holders add an extra $50 to the price on the 5000, they are well worth the money spent.
When you feel pressure on your ankles, it can make the inversion experience very uncomfortable. And the more weight you put on your ankles, the greater pressure you incur.
The earlier model Gravity 3000 is no longer available. Although it could hold up to 350 lbs, it didn’t come with the AIRSOFT ankle holders or the lumbar support pillow.
You may still be able to find the Gravity 2000 inversion table. However, it has a lower weight capacity of 330 lbs and can accommodate people up to 6’3″ tall.
The 2000 doesn’t come with the upgrades of the 5000 model, like the cushioned ankle holders and extra thick backrest cushioning. That said, the bench does include an added safety belt and a back support pillow.
The Ironman 1000 is no longer available. However, this version could only support up to 300 lbs and was 2 inches shorter in width.
