Design

Teeter Hang Ups have some of the best designed and built inversion tables in the industry and are the only inversion brand with certified quality.

Assembly

Very easy to assemble and set up.  The table is dispatched 90% pre-assembled and comes with full instructions.  Although the company state that it takes 13 minutes to assemble the EP-560, we reckon that it would take the average person about 15 – 25 minutes to initially set up the table, including easily adjusting the settings for their own weight and height.

Build Quality

The EP-560 is solidly built out of heat-treated carbon steel, has auto-locking hinges and special squeak-free pivot bearings. It will therefore last a very long time with normal use.

Instructions

To show you how to use the table correctly for both decompression and core workouts, the product comes shipped with:

  • a laminated owner’s manual
  • an instruction DVD of five 10 to 20 minutes stretching and strengthening exercises created by Dr. Shawn.

This inversion table is great for both beginners and more experienced users alike.

Ankle Support

These are curved to fit snugly around your ankles and so reduce the pressure on your ankles when you invert.

The Teeter EP-560 will give you far less discomfort than other brands.

Capacity

The machine accommodates people between 4 foot, 8 inches and 6 foot, 6 inches high. The maximum user’s weight is 300 Pounds.

Inverting

The Teeter Hang Ups EP-560 has to be one of the easiest devices to use, from initial setup right through to folding it up and putting away.

You will certainly notice during the inversion process, how smooth, comfortable and easy it is both inverting and returning to the starting position.

As well as the flexible table that flexes with your body, the EP-560 also allows air circulation for the back. When you compare this to your body sinking into the cheap foam cushions of rival tables, there is no competition.

This means that you can invert without having to worry about anything and thus concentrate on stretching and reducing your back pain.

This is something that you won’t experience with other cheaper inversion tables.

Storage

Because the EP-560 is solidly built out of quality materials, it is quite heavy, about 67 pounds when packaged, and care should be taken when moving it.

Safety

teeter EP-560 exercisesThis Teeter Hang Ups EP-560 review believes that safety is a major concern when choosing an inversion table. Teeter makes the only inversion tables that are tested and certified to by UL®, an independent product safety certification organization.

Only Teeter Hang Ups is listed to the UL 1647 testing standard which guarantees key safety requirements, effectively testing inversion tables to ensure strength and endurance  for “real world” use.  Teeter inversion tables stand apart from others in the marketplace.

Teeter also work with engineers, doctors, chiropractors, athletes and everyday users to provide upgrades to their table design and to ensure consumer protection.

When you’re entrusting your back and neck to a piece of equipment while hanging upside down, you want to be able to know that you can really count on it.

The EP-560 combines this engineering with Flex Technology™, thus creating one of the best-selling and most popular inversion tables on the market today.

Additional Features

  • ComfortTrak™ Bed. The bed now comes with a small adjustable head “pillow” for additional comfort, particularly for when you’re not inverting to the full 90 degrees. This innovative bed design can also accommodate the optional Acupressure Nodes and Lumbar Bridge Accessories.
  • To make your stretching easier and much more effective, the flexible plastic bed surface has the ability to flex with your movements and also comes with easy to reach built-in Stretch Grips.
  • Adjustable strap system – Teeter uses a strap system as it is simple, safe and effective.  The table doesn’t have a huge number of preset angles, but the ones provided are more than sufficient for the needs of anyone.
