You will also notice that every inversion table from these two brands is always highly rated.

Whether you are are beginner or a more seasoned inversion therapy practitioner, an inversion table from the Teeter or Ironman range is one of the best choices you can opt for!

Teeter EP-960 Ltd Inversion Table

The EP-960 inversion table from Teeter is in our opinion the best ‘all rounder’ from the Teeter range.

While the EP-560 and EP-970 from Teeter are also excellent inversion table table models, the features and price of the EP-960 make it the stand out choice!

We will explain the differences between the 3 Teeter inversion table models shortly after looking at the main highlights of the 960.

Specifications and Features:

  • Max weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • User height adjustment: 4’8″ – 6’6″
  • Folded dimensions: 20 x 28.8 x 66″

When tested against inversion tables from other brands Teeter inversion tables exceeded in endurance, rotation control and they were found to be the easiest to assemble!

Teeter inversion tables are also FDA registered as a 510 (k) medical device.

Teeter EP-960 LTD Inversion TableThe EP-960 Teeter inversion table features Teeters ComforTrak bed rest, as do the EP-560 and 970 models.

The main benefit of this style of plastic backrest is that it allows for more effective spinal decompression.

Where as padded and fabric inversion table beds allow the body to sink into them creating friction, the smooth surface of Teeter backrests enhances the stretch of the whole body and makes it less effort to slide down the backrest and decompress the spine.

This plastic style backrest also provides more stretching options than other inversion table beds, providing stretch grips on either side of the small black padded headrest, as well as one above at the top of the bed.

The numerous ridges on the backrest also allow for a range of accessories to be added to the backrest such as the lumbar bridge and acupressure nodes (included with the LTD models of the Teeter EP range of tables). You can find out more about some of the additional Teeter accessories here, all of which are available separately.

Other features on the EP-960 include extra long side handles for additional help when inverting and reverting and a raised rear floor bar (pictured right) for stretching and stability while inverted.

On the EP-960 inversion table you also have the EZ reach extended ankle lock lever for strain free ankle locking and additional traction handles for further stretching options and oscillated decompression movement. *Both of these features are not available on the Ep-560 model. 

The only difference between the EP-960 and the EP-970 is that the ankle lock lever is a little longer on the 970 model and has a different design.

What makes the Teeter EP-960 Inversion table a better option than others?

It is clear to see that Teeter really know what they are doing when creating excellent inversion table products.

It is often due to the high quality that many opt for a Teeter table over lesser known brands.

Also the full 5 year warranty that is available with both the EP-560 and EP-960, make Teeter a very trustworthy and safe brand to consider.

The EP-960 is packed with very useful features that are rarely found on other models and the option to add further accessories to the backrest, makes the Teeter inversion experience far more expandable than if you were to opt for a table from another brand.

You can read more about the features found on the EP-960 inversion table from Teeter here. We would also recommend taking a look at the buyer reviews on the product page to see how positive they all are!

You may also wish to take a look at the slightly cheaper EP-560 here, however in our opinion the 960 is a better more feature packed option overall.

It is no wonder many consider the Teeter EP-960 inversion table to be one of the best inversion tables around.

The precise rotational movement of the table and ease of assembly are certainly massive positives, as is the comfort provided.

In addition to this the Teeter range allow for lots of additional stretching and allow for very easy and efficient spinal decompression.

Overall, the Teeter EP-960 is a very functional, high quality and comfortable inversion table that the vast majority absolutely love. A near perfect inversion table that is ideal for beginners and for those who are more experienced with inversion therapy.

Ironman Gravity 4000 Inversion table

The Ironman 4000 inversion table is listed as the highest weight capacity inversion table available and is able to hold a maximum weight limit of 350 lbs.

However, as you will see in our post the best inversion tables for larger people there are a couple of inversion tables available that feature larger weight capacities.

Despite this the Ironman gravity 4000 is still an excellent inversion table that is feature packed, functional and very comfortable.

Specifications and Features:

  • Max weight capacity: 350 lbs
  • User height adjustment: 4’9″ – 6’6″
  • Open Dimensions: 49 x 26 x 65″ (L x W x H)
  • Folded dimensions: 26 x 17 x 80″ (L x W x H)
  • Item Weight: 76 lbs
  • Folding design
  • Ergonomic ankle supports
  • Patented ankle lock lever (easy to reach)
  • Thick padded memory foam backrest
  • Lumbar pillow included
  • Tether strap inversion angle limiter
  • Extra long side safety handles
  • 1 year warranty for frame, 90 days all other components

Ironman Fitness Gravity 4000 Inversion TableMany consider the Ironman Gravity 4000 to be one of the best padded inversion tables currently available. It is also one of the most popular choices.

The thick vinyl covered memory foam padded backrest is clearly the main highlight of this large and sturdy inversion table.

You simply have to view a couple of the product images to see how high quality and comfortable it looks, especially when compared to some other padded inversion tables on the market.

Also included is a padded lumbar support pillow, a feature rarely found on other inversion tables that can provide some nice lower back relief while the table is in use.

The other main highlight is the above average weight capacity of 350 lbs. Since the majority of inversion table tend to have average weight capacities of 300 lbs, the Ironman 4000 is a great choice if you are in need of a slightly more sturdy inversion table model.

Ironman Fitness Gravity 4000 Inversion TableOther features of this durable inversion table include the fairly standard long side bars to assist in inverting and returning to the upright position.

The inversion table also has a tether strap angle limitation system, a fabric strap that can be set to a certain length to limit the angle at which the backrest inverts.

One last great feature is the extra long ankle lock lever, a feature that makes securing your ankles into the dual molded ankle cup holders an easy and effortless task. You can securely lock your ankles in place without placing any strain upon your back or spine by simply pressing the palm activated lever.

On visiting the retailer there is an option to add a waterproof PVC equipment mat to the inversion table package.

The 79 x 35.4″ mat may be a good option if you need to reduce noise and protect floors while using the inversion table.

However, since the table already features plastic floor stabilizers this mat may not really be too necessary.

Also in our experience, using an inversion table doesn’t cause much wear on floors or create much noise, so the mat may not be of too much use for some users.

Why opt for the Ironman Gravity 4000 inversion table?

Ironman Fitness Gravity 4000 Inversion TableThe Ironman Gravity 4000 is a very high quality inversion table that is a good choice for a range of users regardless of their body type.

The extra weight capacity makes this table a nice choice for anyone on the heavier side or for anyone looking for a little more stability and durability from an inversion table.

As has been mentioned there are a couple of other inversion tables with higher weight capacities, however these options are significantly more expensive than the Gravity 4000 from Ironman.

The comfort provided by the memory foam backrest is also something many buyers are very quick to mention.

While it is true that the Gravity 4000 inversion table does not have quite as many stand out features as an inversion table from Teeter, it is a very solid and no nonsense inversion table.

Some individuals have even compared this Ironman inversion table to the Teeter range of tables and stated this is a better option overall. Others however, are likely to disagree.

If you are looking for a highly customizable inversion table that offers a range of extra stretching options, you may be better off with a Teeter inversion table.

On the other hand if you are after a strong and high quality inversion table that is fairly low in cost, the Ironman 4000 is one of the best padded inversion tables on the market.

Overall this inversion table is very good value for money and as you will see in the buyer reviews on the product page, there is nothing but positivity from the large majority of users and reviewers.

Exerpeutic 975 SL Inversion table

The Exerpeutic 975SL is an inversion table with a lot going for it!

The high 350 lbs weight capacity combined with the 2.3 inch thick memory foam backrest really make this good looking inversion table stand out from the crowd.

In addition to this, the 975SL inversion table features an excellent inversion angle limitation device that can be adjusted effortlessly while the table is in use!

Exerpeutic 975SL Inversion Table - 350 lbs, 4'9" - 6'6"In many respects the Exerpeutic 975SL is a fairly similar inversion table to the Ironman 4000 (featured just above).

The strong and sturdy design makes it a great choice for heavier users thanks to the 350 lbs weight capacity.

While the 2.3 inch memory foam padded backrest and lumbar support pillow provide exceptional comfort while using the inversion table.

Just like many other high end inversion tables the Exerpeutic 975SL inversion table features an extra long palm activated ankle lock lever. A great design feature that reduces the need to bend while positioning your ankles into the table.

The table also features a dual ratchet lock mechanism, this holds the ankles in place in a far more secure fashion making it a safer option over some other inversion tables.

The main highlight of this particular inversion table has to be the Exerpeutic patented iControl disk brake system, allowing for complete control over the angle of inversion.

Unlike inversion angle limitation devices on other inversion tables, the iControl brake system can be used while inverting, allowing the user to adjust the inversion angle within seconds without leaving the table.

Exerpeutic 975SL Inversion Table - 350 lbs, 4'9" - 6'6"This really is a great feature, especially if you like to gradually build up to full inversion during a session and prevent a overwhelming rush of blood to the head.

The brake lever can be locked and unlocked to hold and release the backrest position at infinite angles from upright through to full inversion.

This Exerpeutic inversion table also features Airsoft ankle holders.

One complaint many have when using an inversion table with molded plastic ankle holders is how uncomfortable they can be on certain models.

With the Airsoft ankle holders however the holders fit more comfortably to the shape and contours of your legs and ankles and provide additional cushioning.

The last thing to mention is the lower stretch handles at the rear of the table.

These feature on the majority of tables from the Exerpeutic range and are a nice addition that provide additional stability while inverting and more leverage when stretching out the full length of the body.

Why choose the Exerpeutic 975 SL inversion table?

Exerpeutic 975SL Inversion Table - 350 lbs, 4'9" - 6'6"The Exerpeutic SL is an excellent choice for the larger user, much like the Ironman 4000!

The comfort provided is great and the addition of the lumbar support cushion is a very nice touch.

However, the main reason to opt for the 975 SL over other models has to be due to the features.

The disk brake system is perfect for beginners to inversion therapy and is also perfect for more experienced users who like to vary the angle of inversion.

The fact the brake system can be used on the go, makes this angle limitation system far superior to other systems such as the tether strap (where you need to dismount the table in order to adjust).

The comfortable Airsoft ankle holders are also a good reason to consider this table over other inversion tables.

The Exerpeutic 975SL has been designed really well in order to provide excellent comfort, safety and convenience to the user.

Another bonus is that the Exerpeutic 975SL inversion table is very straightforward to assemble, with many users praising how easy the assembly instructions are to follow.

Overall this Exerpeutic inversion table is certainly one of the better options available if you are looking for a high quality and well built inversion table.

The Best Cheap Inversion Table if on a budget (less than $150)

If you are not completely sold on inversion therapy at present. You may wish to opt for a more basic inversion table for a lower price to see if inversion is a good choice for you.

Due to the difference in price the inversion table options below are not as feature packed as the high end tables above.

However, they are all still very well rated by buyers and certainly effective if you require a simple and straightforward inversion table to use for inversion therapy.

Innova ITX9600 Inversion table

Innova make a wide variety of inversion tables and every table from them often has nice added touches and features.

Out of all the Innova tables the ITX9600 inversion table is clearly the most popular choice and it is also one of the cheapest and well rated.

If you are looking to save a bit of cash, many agree this is one of the best low priced inversion tables available.

Innova ITX9600 Inversion TableConsidering how low in price the Innova ITX 9600 inversion table is, it has a lot of very nice features.

Firstly the padded backrest, which is always a good addition for providing a little extra comfort.

The Innova ITX9600 also features an adjustable padded headrest. This feature not only provides user comfort but also allow the user to adjust the table to suit there body length and proportions better.

You can also adjust the length of the footrest to further suit your body proportions.

Rather than opting for the commonly found tether strap inversion angle limitation system, Innova inversion tables feature a pin limitation system on the frame of the table.

The pin system allows you to accurately choose which angle your inversion session is limited to by simply placing the selector pin in one of the marked angle holes.

Using the pin system you can select angular increments of 15, 30, 45, 60 or 85 degrees. There is also a holder for 90 degrees which allows for full inversion (as you can see in the image above).

Innova ITX9600 Inversion Table reversible ankle holdersDue to its ease of use the pin selection limitation device is a very convenient safety feature which is ideal for those wishing not to invert fully.

The ITX 9600 also features a reversible ankle holding system. The ankle holders on this model consist of molded plastic U-shaped cups and foam rollers.

Depending on the users comfort preference they can choose to have the rollers at the front of the ankles or at the back as seen in the picture to the right.

As is standard with many other inversion tables, this Innova model has dual long side safety handles for assistance and stability while inverting.

Innova ITX9600 Inversion TableIs the Innova ITX9600 the best budget inversion table?

At the time of writing it is safe to say this inversion table is the one of the best in terms of value for money.

Taking into consideration how adjustable this table is and the extra features it possesses, there are not many inversion tables that match it in price or functionality.

The vast amount of positive reviews it has gained from buyers are a true testament to how good this is as an entry level inversion therapy table.

If you like the look of this inversion table, it may also be worth checking out other Innova inversion tables once you visit the retailer.

While we do consider this to be the best all round inversion table from Innova (and the best value). There are other inversion tables in the range that have additional extras such as heat and lumbar pads, they are slightly more expensive however.

Overall this is a very good inversion table (especially for beginners) that is very well rated and well priced!

Exerpeutic Inversion table

This inversion table is the most basic model produced by the excellent Exerpeutic range.

Whereas most other Exerpeutic inversion tables generally have loads of great features, this basic table unfortunately doesn’t have many stand out features.

It is however, one of the lowest priced inversion tables on the market and has loads of great reviews.

Specifications and Features:

  • Max weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • User height adjustment: 4’10” – 6’6″

The Exerpeutic basic inversion table is a fairly standard inversion table.

Aside from the 0.75 inch foam padding featured in the backrest many of the other features are as you would expect.

The tether strap angle limiter is great for building up confidence on this inversion table allowing to user to restrict the inversion angle.

Since the tether strap is freely adjustable you can choose from unlimited inversion angles from horizontal through to full invert.

As with all inversion tables you can adjust the height of the inversion table to match your stature and adjust the ankle holders to fit your legs using spring pin selectors.

The ankle holders on this model are a combination of foam padded rollers for the front of the leg, with molded plastic cups to cushion the rear of the ankles.

The side handles are extra long and allow for additional support and assistance when inverting and returning to the upright position.

Why opt for the Exerpeutic inversion table?

The Exerpeutic inversion table is a very basic model and therefore is a good choice if you are a beginner, who perhaps doesn’t want to invest too much in inversion therapy just yet.

Due to the low price this inversion table is a great entry level inversion table that is fairly good quality.

Since the Exerpeutic inversion table is very well priced it has attracted a great deal of attention from buyers and is quite a popular inversion table.

Many buyers despite being new to inversion therapy have found this inversion table very easy to assemble and very straightforward to use.

Most also complement how comfortable the table is to use thanks to the thin layer of padding.

Overall the reviews and ratings for this inexpensive inversion table are very good.

The only thing for the consumer to decide, is if you would prefer to pay extra to get a model with more features.

Considering how basic this inversion table is, it may be surprising to some how much it exceeds many peoples expectations.

Ironman Gravity 1000 Inversion table

The Ironman Gravity 1000 inversion table is the entry level inversion table from the very high quality Ironman brand.

As is to be expected with many inversion tables in this price range the table is quite basic and lacks many of the features found on newer models.

This style of inversion table has however, been around for quite some time and its classic design and functionality is still very well received by many.

Specifications and Features:

  • Max weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • User height adjustment: 4’9″ – 6’6″
  • Dimensions: 49 x 25 x 62″ (L x W x H)
  • Item Weight: 46 lbs
  • Assembly required
  • Folding design

IRONMAN Gravity 1000 Inversion TableThe Ironman Gravity 1000 inversion table features a nylon fabric bed which provides fairly good comfort considering it is not padded.

Many of the other features on the Ironman Gravity 1000 are standard on most other inversion table models.

You have spring pin devices to set the height of the inversion table and a simple spring pin device to lock your ankles into place.

The ankle holders are dual plastic semi circular cups for cushioning both the front and back of the ankles.

The tether strap angle limitation fabric can be adjusted in length to increase or decrease the inversion angle, or can be removed entirely for full inversion.

The extra long side handle bars are also useful for help easing into inversion and out of it.

IRONMAN Gravity 1000 Inversion TableWhy choose the Ironman Gravity 1000 inversion table?

Although it doesn’t have any real outstanding features, the Gravity 1000 inversion table is a tried and tested design that has been around for years.

The fact it can rely on functionality alone and still receive excellent reviews shows that this basic table is a very worthwhile consideration, especially for those just starting with inversion therapy.

Also this inversion table is made by the reputable Ironman brand, so high quality is guaranteed.

Although this is a good quality and highly rated basic inversion table, we personally feel it is a little overpriced.

Considering some of the newer models from Ironman such as the 3000 and the 4000 (listed higher up this page), only cost around $50 – 70 more and they feature padded backrests and palm activated ankle levers.

Overall this is a very good inversion table for beginners to inversion that is very well rated, however it would be a much better option if it was a bit lower in price.

In our opinion if you are going to opt for an Ironman inversion table, you should probably spend the bit extra and get the Gravity 4000 over this model.

Finding the Best Inversion Table Buyers Guide – things to consider

Although there are not a great many inversion tables to choose from on the market, there are some that will suit some better than others.

So what key points should you consider when looking for the best inversion table to suit your own needs?


cost vectorFor more experienced inversion therapy enthusiasts the cost of an inversion table may not be an issue.

If you already have experience using a more basic inversion table then you are likely to be willing to pay a bit more to get an upgraded table with extra features.

However, those who are new to inversion therapy may be a little apprehensive to spend too much in the event that they find inversion is not a good fit for them.

As with many consumer products, the more you spend on an inversion table the more features it is likely to have, it is also likely to be better in quality.

This however, doesn’t mean that opting for a cheaper inversion table is a bad idea as there are some excellent low priced options available as you can see in our ‘best choice’ list above. Just be sure to opt for an inversion table with relatively high buyer ratings (such as the 3 above) to be sure you are getting one of the better low end tables.

The main thing to consider is if you feel it will be more cost effective in the long run to ‘shell out’ for a higher end inversion table. After all if you do choose a more basic ‘budget’ option for $100 you may feel like upgrading to a better table after a couple of years.

When considering the price of an inversion table, also take into consideration the additional features it has to offer and whether these features are worth the extra cost.


Do you need an inversion table with a comfortable padded backrest? Or would an extra long ankle lever benefit you?

Ultimately the ability to invert is what everyone is looking for from an inversion table, so are additional features really necessary?

For someone who has an issue with bending over too far a extra long ankle lever may be a great addition, however for others it may seem a little pointless.

Having a heated pad on the table backrest is something that is loved by some users, but on the other hand other users find it a real hassle having to wait while the pad heats up and choose not to use the feature.

Overall what features you require comes down to personal preference and if you feel a certain feature is a benefit to you personally.

Newcomers to inversion therapy may find the inversion angle limitation system is something they want to pay more attention to, so they have more control over how much they invert while getting used to the table.

For me personally, I prefer inversion tables with additional stretching bars and handles to get an extra stretch while inverted, a feature that others may overlook.

We would recommend having a quick look at our inversion table features guide to familiarize yourself with some of the additional features on offer, and decide if they may be a nice idea for you.

If you do decide the additional features are not particularly beneficial, then you could probably save a bit of cash and opt for a more simple ‘no thrills’ inversion table.

Weight Capacity and Height Adjust-ability: 

The weight capacity is a very important aspect to consider.

Since you are inverting upside down you want an inversion table that can easily support your full weight without buckling under pressure.

Many inversion tables are able to hold up to 300 lbs in weight, however there are some that can hold greater amounts of weight as you can see here!

Every inversion table listed on our website has the weight capacity clearly shown on the product page and you should never risk using a table if you are heavier than the recommended weight capacity.

Luckily you will find most manufacturers are very honest when it comes to maximum load specifications as the last thing they want is anyone being injured from one of their products.

Much like the weight capacities, the height adjustment specifications for each inversion table are also very easy to find on our website product pages.

On average the majority of inversion tables are suitable for users between the heights of 4 ft 10″ – 6 ft 6″.

If you are over 6 ft 6 in height there are not many options available to you, however the Health Gear ITM 7.5 inversion table can accommodate taller users up to 7 ft in height.

For those under 4 ft 10″, Teeter inversion tables have a minimum height restriction of 4 ft 8″. Other inversion tables from the Exerpeutic and Ironman range also cater for those who are 4 ft 9″ and above.

Space required:

Inversion tables are fairly bulky pieces of equipment so it is a good idea to check the dimensions to ensure you have adequate space.

In general most inversion tables have a width of around 28 – 30 inches. However they do vary so be sure to make note of the dimensions of the table you are considering.

Width wise an area of 35 inches minimum (roughly 3 – 4 ft) should be fine.

The height you set the inversion table bed to, will determine how much space you need length wise overall due to the swinging nature of the backboard and leg bar.

Therefore if you are taller you will also need more space to accommodate the overall length when using the table. If you are shorter side you can get away with a little less space lengthwise.

You will also need to consider the clearance space needed when you rotate the table horizontally and ensure your ceiling is not too low.

At a bare minimum an area of 3 x 7 ft x 7 (W x L x H) should be fine. However a space of 3 x 8 x 8 ft may be less restrictive if you have the table set over the 6 ft range.

Ease of assembly: 

This is a fairly minor point as anyone trying to assemble an inversion table should get there eventually.

However if you are not particularly handy it may be best to read the buyer reviews on some inversion tables to gauge how easy others consider them to be to assemble.

Inversion tables from the Teeter range for example are very easy to assemble. But some of the lesser known brands may be a little more tricky.

Overall this is something that you shouldn’t worry about too much as most inversion tables are fairly straightforward to piece together with a bit of effort.


If you want to be on the safe side when choosing a great inversion table, you cannot go far wrong with the 6 best options listed higher up on the page.

In fact the vast majority of all inversion tables listed in our website shop area are all very well rated by buyers so it really comes down to your own individual preference.

You can read up on the features of each individual table and check out all of the buyer reviews on each of the product pages to ensure you get a high quality, effective inversion table!
