My review of the Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table range
At the beginning of the 1980s, Roger Teeter was competing in water skiing events at a national level. Thanks to relentless and crippling back pains, he had no choice but to equip a steel reinforced lace-up brace every single time he hit the slopes.
This suffering would eventually come to a halt, thanks to the invention of the Teeter inversion table.
It was at one particular ski event that Roger was introduced to inversion therapy. He was so impressed by it that he and his wife founded the Teeter company in 1981. By 1982, they had already produced their first pair of Gravity Boots as well as an over easy inversion table.
Thirty years later, and Teeter are now the most widely trusted inversion therapy brand in the world. The U.S. Army Physical Fitness School has even been using Teeter products since 1999 to help recruits feel healthier and assist in pain relief.
Even Roger himself is still using it at the grand old age of 76, and credits his vitality and active lifestyle to using Teeter Hang Ups on a daily basis (which goes to show that Teeter Hang Ups do work fantastically!).
Beyond inversion tables, Teeter also produce gravity boots, stress-relieving pillow sets, back stretchers, and other useful products for relieving pain and discomfort. Today, we’re going to take a look at three Teeter inversion tables and we’ll provide a brief introduction to each of them.
Teeter Hang Ups EP-950 Inversion Table With Healthy Back DVD
A prime example of inversion technology at its best, the EP-950 is used for relieving pain in the back and spine, assisting in improved posture, and treating other health ailments. It also uses the Patented Flex Technology system, which provides amazing versatility in how you use the table thanks to an expanded area of movement.
There’s also a comfortable surface which you can rely on to encourage stretching without having to experience burning sensations or other discomfort. A ratchet ankle lock system provides enhanced support, which over time will allow you to feel more confident in using the table and getting the maximum benefit out of it.
The EP-950 has a 300-pound weight limit, and comes with a 5 year warranty, too. On Amazon, 304 users have written reviews with an average rating of 4.5 stars. This consistent customer satisfaction can simply be put down to the care Teeter put into developing it, as well as the affordable price-tag.
One user reviewing the table wrote that he had experienced intense pain in his upper back. Ultimately, he experienced pinched nerves and found that his arm and forearm movement was significantly impaired. After using this particular table for just 2 nights, he reported fantastic pain relief. He now swears by the Teeter EP-950, and manages to enjoy entire days without any pain at all!
Teeter Hang Ups EP-560 Ltd Inversion Table w/ bonus Acupressure Nodes & Lumbar Bridge
This slightly more affordable inversion table has been advertised on TV thanks to the fantastic therapeutic benefits reported by users. With over 235 reviews, it has an average score of 4.5/5, which is testament to the incredible products Teeter have been producing since their inception.
Using the pioneering ComforTrak bed design, the EP-560 is provided with complimentary additional acupressure nodes and a lumbar bridge. You can attach these anywhere along the ComforTrak to experience inversion sessions with even greater results than before!
Also present are the ergo-embrace ankle cups and the grip-and-stretch handles, which allow for more stretching and decompression. You’ll also find the table extremely easy to control thanks to the Precision Balancing System, which comes complete with secure lock-out to prevent any nasty accidents.
In competitive tests, it’s consistently out-rated its competitors thanks to a fantastic design. Not only that, it arrives 90% partially assembled, meaning that you can have it up and running in minutes after opening the box. Anyone up to 300 lbs can use the table with complete confidence, and Teeter also provide a 5-year warranty with it to put your mind at ease when purchasing.
After using the EP-560, one user got in touch to explain that he and his wife had been experiencing back problems for a while. After just 10 minutes of trying it out, he swears his wife cried with relief as she was enjoyed her first pain-free moment in years!
Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 Inversion Therapy Table
In trial use, it has been shown to lengthen the spine to allow for pressure relief on the discs, muscles, and tendons. It also features Flex technology, which again will allow for a fantastic area of motion and creative use of the table to treat a huge list of health issues.
An adjustable foot platform comes with the EZ Angle tether strap, as well as a flexible pillow. An Instructional DVD provides all the info you need to get started using the table, and the sturdy frame allows for users up to 300 lbs to use it with maximum confidence. It’s also provided with a 5-year warranty, courtesy of Teeter.
In terms of actual use, we heard from someone who had purchased the EP-550 to help him with periodic back pains he had been experiencing for quite a while. After some experimentation, he concluded that using it 2-3 times a week worked best for him. Best of all? He hasn’t experienced significant back problems in over 4 months!
