Teeter Hang-ups has made back therapy equipment for over 30 years, and they design a variety of different inversion tables. Their equipment is known for being well-made, durable and secure. (Important, especially when you are hanging upside down!).
Teeter Inversion Table Benefits:
Teeter Hang-Ups inversion tables cost more than many basic models. However, this device has multiple upgraded features. Therefore, you can get multiple health benefits at one time using this inversion table.
In other words, this product makes a cost-effective investment. I personally choose the EP-560 over the EP-950, but both versions have excellent designs.
Which Inversion Table Do Customers Like Best?
Most customers prefer the Teeter Hang Ups EP-560 which comes with acupressure nodes. You can adjust the nodes, plus the device comes with a removable lumbar support bridge.
Note: Acupressure nodes work well for people who tend to get tight back muscles. You can position these nodes to dig into your back and activate trigger points while laying in the inverted position.
Don’t invert all the way, and you can use the weight of your body to add more massaging pressure.
People who plan on using their inversion benches daily usually appreciate these upgraded features more. I mean, if you hang upside down frequently, you might as well be as comfortable as possible, right?
The EP-560 Has Lots of Features
The EP-560 does not have the lowest price when it comes to inversion tables, but for good reason. Besides the bonus features mentioned above, you can lock the bed into place for doing inverted exercises.
Yes, you can actually tone muscles in your core, legs and glutes using this device. In other words, it’s like getting 2 pieces of equipment in one.
And don’t worry – the machine comes with a DVD covering healthy back routines that you can perform at home.
Why Athletes Like the Teeter Inversion Table…
For some people, core strengthening plays an important role in recovery, similar to stretching. Therefore, if you can do everything with one machine at one time, you can get faster results, right?
For people who exercise often, participate in high impact sports or do weight training, an inversion table can help with relaxing tense muscles, decompressing the spine and reducing nerve pressure. Regular use >can increase flexibility and performance in sports and other daily activities. This applies not only to the back, but to hips, knees and ankles (ie. improved shock absorption).
Speaking of exercise recovery, a lot of athletes like the PR Soles recovery sandals for their acupressure therapy on the feet.
Teeter Hang-Ups Review of Features:
- To increase stretching and decompression, the device also comes with built-in “Grip-and-Stretch” Handles.
- The ComforTrak bed has flex. Therefore, it provides a greater range of motion. This is ideal when stretching and completing exercises.
- The ankle cups, or “Ergo-Embrace Supports” are super comfortable. As we all know, the more comfortable the equipment, the more often we will use it, right?
Teeter Hang-Ups EP-960
The Teeter Hangups EP-960 is another inversion table that is a hot-seller.
This is a premium table that comes with the Patented Flex Technology that has a smooth, low-friction surface allows you to move and have a greater range of motion.
Why does this matter?
Greater flexibility essentially is better for realignment of the spine as well as relaxing your muscles.
You can also pre-set your rotation angles – you don’t have to invert to 100%. Some users want to begin inversion therapy gradually, and other people prefer a less intense recline because it puts less strain on their joints. In any case, this table give you multiple options.
Besides using the EP-960 to minimize back pain, it can be a great stress-reliever as well as a means of improving your posture. (Sit at your desk a lot? You know what I mean). Athletes like runners, cyclists, weightlifters, snowboarders and golf enthusiasts can benefit simply by reducing the pressure and stress they put on their body.
Like the EP-560 above, the EP-960 also comes with the Ergo-Embrace Ankle System, for maximum foot comfort and fit while inverted.
If all of these cool features aren’t enough, there’s the Teeter Hang Ups Vibration Cushion accessory that you can use while you are inverted. This vibrating cushion also provides heat too through infrared technology.
Save money on massage sessions and get a relaxing spa treatment at home for less! Studies demonstrate that pulse and vibration technology can minimize muscle pain, boost blood circulation and promote relaxation.
It’s very easy to use – as it conveniently attaches to the inversion table and comes with a remote control.
