Features of the Teeter Hang Ups EP-560
1. Ergo-Embrace Ankle System & Ankle Comfort Dial
Ankle comfort is paramount when inverting. After years-long research, Teeter introduced the patented and very specialised Ergo-Embrace ankle wrap system, which utilises a special pressure-reducing foam for superior support and comfort.
An Ankle Comfort Dial allows you to adjust the foot platform height to customize the grip location for a better, more secure fit. Have bad lower back pain? You may prefer the EP-960 which features a larger, higher handle for clamping your feet so you don’t have to bend over.
2. Rotation Control
Stretch Assist Handles provide a large grip surface and feature an embossed inversion angle guide.
Pre-set Rotation Control allows you to easily pre-determine your maximum angle of inversion. The EP-560 is perfect for starting out with inversion.
Although the handles are smaller and more compact than the EP-960, if you are a beginner or using a Teeter table for exercise rather than severe back pain, the EP-560’s handles will give you more than enough control. Optionally add on the EZ Stretch handles at any point for extra control (shown – available separately).
3. ComforTrak Bed
Teeter’s patented bed design is engineered to maximize decompression, the smooth bed surface reduces friction, and flexes to accommodate body movement and add comfort.
Grip-and-Stretch Handholds built into the ComforTrak Bed and A-frame allow the user to enhance their stretching and decompression.
4. Steel base with easy storage option
The heavy-Duty Steel Base features a raised grip for enhanced stretching, corner feet that increase the width by 20% and protect floors, and a scratch-resistant finish.
Folds for storage in just a few seconds to 20″ x 28.8″ x 66″ (50.8 x 73 x 167.6 cm). Allows you to easily pull the table out from the corner or a cupboard and setup in seconds. The steel base means your table will last many years and is very sturdy to hold your whole body weight.

Adjustable Acupressure Therapy Nodes
Nodes in combinations of two sizes and two densities insert anywhere along the bed tracks, providing healing res sure for the back muscles.
Tension tends to concentrate around the acupressure points along the meridians of your body. The Adjustable Acupressure Nodes are an optional accessory designed to place pressure on muscle trigger points to release tension, increase blood circulation, and relieve muscle discomfort.
Place the different types of nodes along the ComforTrak™ bed to target tense muscles. Read more.
Attaches to the bed tracks, adding a gentle arch to the lower back.
Position the bridge in the small of your back to provide a point of support, focusing extra traction on the lower back.
The overall benefit is deeper decompression and improved alignment benefits. The massage nodes can also be used on the lumbar bridge. Read more.
EZ Stretch Handles
Simply push against the handles while inverting to put pressure on different areas of the back. Twist, oscillate, and decompress in any direction. You’re in complete control.
The EP-560 Sport and EP-960 come with the EZ Stretch Handles as standard, or these can easily be added and removed as needed. Read more.
