The Difference between Teeter inversion table and competitors
On the company site is linked to many different studies that have been done, to compare teeter to other inversion tables. That was a really big surprise to me. Must be a reason they have such a strong track record of success.
You’re probably wondering, how this can be any different from any other. In all honesty, all will accomplish the same. Meaning, all are designed the same way to support someone to incline back safely and securely.
The differences claimed by TEETER backed by studies, Rated number one in the following:
- Static Load Test – How much weight the inversion table holds.
- Functional Endurance Test – How many times the table cycles from upright to inverted and returning upright again.
- Ease of Assembly – Time from opening the box to the product being operational.
- Ease of Rotation – Required effort to balance and cycle the inversion table.
- Ease of Lockout In Full Inversion – Required effort to invert fully and have the table lock into that position.
Furthermore if you are about to buy a product that has such an effect on your health. That even claims to heal back pain!
You are going to want to make sure it lasts.
Another thing teeter really takes pride in is the quality of the table. They use more steel rather than cheaper material, in the right places.
As well as a 30 day money back guarantee, so Teeter is very confident in the product.

In order to accomplish this Teeter states they include unique features, such as a ComforTrak Bed that gives you a greater range of motion, while its “track” design allows customizable placement of the Acupressure Nodes and Lumbar Bridge based on your specific needs.

What others say
You don’t get 2 Million customers by luck. Just a simple search online will show that Teeter Inversion tables have tons of positive reviews, and almost no negative feedback.
That being said there are always people that won’t like something. The ying and yang of life! (Good and bad)
Most complaints are:
- Ankle Discomfort (Can easily be solved by wearing socks that cover ankles while inverted)
- Takes time to get used to device.. ( That would be with any device that inclines you up to 180 degrees. Which is a main benefit of inversion table vs gravity boots. Be sure to listen to your body and go easy when beginning inversion therapy )
I personally own the “Teeter EP-560 Ltd” inversion table and can say I love it! I recently bought my dad one for his lower back pain; and he uses it everyday. He says it really helped him with knee pain.
At first the biggest obstacle was my stomach was not used to being upside down, at all. I would feel nauseous so i started small with Five minutes each time. Now I can easily spend 15 minutes fully inverted. After having bad scoliosis my goal was to maintain a healthy spine before becoming painful and inversion has really helped.
Inversion therapy is not for everyone. But if you are faced with back pain Teeter Hang ups offers many different options, of course there is not one set end all be all.
Inversion tables have personally helped multiple people in my life that have back pain or joint discomfort. I hope you found this review helpful in your journey to a healthier back.
That being said I am very happy to stand behind this company. Teeter Hangups has a successful track record. They continuously are trying new things and always testing to give the highest quality product.
However if you find it isn’t for you, you can always take advantage of the company’s 30 day return policy.
