The Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 Inversion Therapy Table is an outstanding piece of equipment and one of the company’s most popular products on the market today.

ep-550 inversionFounded in 1981, Teeter Hang Ups, the industry leader, has been producing some of the best quality and value inversion equipment, ensuring reliability and user safety.

A good quality, higher end table, the EP 550 is suitable for anyone who wants to buy a table now but who may also want the option of upgrading should they wish to perform more core workout exercises at a later date.

The table can be modified with accessories including gravity boots for additional comfort and added ankle support, a vibration cushion for the head and neck, and EZ Traction Handles for enhanced decompression and stretching.

Assembly

A major benefit of the Teeter EP-550, and indeed all Teeter inversion tables, is the ease with which it can be set up.  The table can be set up in as little as 20 minutes compared to up to over an hour for some competing brands.  

Design

Like all inversion tables made by Teeter Hang Ups, the EP-550 is very easy to use and allows you to adjust to your height and to preset and invert to the exact angle of your choice.

The EP-550 is constructed of a plastic injected mold making it very easy to clean and, at the same time, durable.  The machine is made safe and secure with cam locks and adjustable roller hinges and also has a controlled lockout when the user is fully inverted.

Build Quality

Compared to other inversion tables on the market, you can see the difference in construction of the Teeter EP-550.  It has the standard sturdy Teeter A-frame base constructed out of high quality materials.  It also features a scratch-resistant powder coating and triple-plated chrome finish.

The price of the Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 may seem high when compared to some inversion table models that are currently on the market for as little as $100.   However, you should bear mind that the quality, including the stronger, more durable, construction of the EP-550 will give you many more years of use than the cheaper products.
