What Features to Compare

Inversion table therapy strengthens muscular frame of the back and stimulates nervous system. While exercising on inversion tables, your blood gets saturated with oxygen, and your brain functions about 7% faster and about 14% more accurate. Exercising on an inversion therapy table or on an inversion chair stimulates circulation of blood and forces joint fluid. Choosing an inversion machine can be a challenging task, so let's see what to pay attention to.

Construction and the material of inversion tables are top important things to consider. Inversion tables can be of stationary or portable design. Stationary inversion tables have strong metal frame, intended for large weight and continuous use. Such inversion tables are mostly used in gyms and medical centers. Portable inversion tables suit well for home use, they won't take much space when folded and are as functional as stationary inversion tables. Inversion tables have metal frame, which makes the whole construction durable and robust. Backrest of inversion tables should preferably be made of ventilated plastic, yet most inversion tables have a wooden backrest with soft padding.

Safety and comfort are essential to pay attention to when you look for the best inversion tables. Inversion means hanging the body upside down, therefore important elements of inversion tables are fixing footrests and hand rails which ensure your safety and proper exercising. Ankles are fixed on inversion tables with special holders or a padded rod. In this position, joints of your back begin to stretch and it happens without any effort on your part. Body's weight is suspended from the lower body, and you feel relief. Joints get decompress, with the result that has a significant positive effect. The best inversion tables have wide quality leg fasteners making hanging more comfortable and you can hang longer without any discomfort, as the load is better distributed. With uncomfortable leg fasteners, you might feel pain and discomfort. Reliable fasteners enable you to train your abs by lifting the upper body. Handrails of inversion tables should be durable and made of non-slip material. And, of course, inversion tables should be stable and not slip, so look out for anti-skid pads on inversion board base.

Custom settings of inversion tables are also worth paying attention to. Setting inversion tables up for different body height should be simple, fast and reliable. The inclination angle is fixed a safety belt — the longer is the strap, the greater the inclination angle of the inversion table. So check the quality of a strap and its hooks. Inversion tables must withstand the declared maximum load weight, which influences their stability.
