Inversion Therapy has become popular as a way to relieve some of the back problems that are caused by decompression of the spine. Using an inversion table like the EP-960 can also help to give the back a greater flexibility and relaxation.
Teeter Hang Ups has been making inversion tables since 1981, with the aim of producing the best inversion table available. By using a Teeter Hang Ups table for just a few minutes each day it could be possible to find a temporary relief from back pain, achieve better posture, improve circulation and reduce stress.
So you’re left in no doubt about how the Teeter Hang Ups EP-960 inversion table works, the manufacturers have included a DVD with full instructions to get you started.

Features of the Teeter Hang Ups EP-960
1. EZ-Reach Ankle System With Triple-Lock Security
EZ-Reach Ankle System with triple-lock security and an extended handle that reduces the need to bend when securing the ankles.
Ankle comfort is paramount when inverting. After years-long research, Teeter introduced the patented and very specialized Ergo-Embrace ankle wrap system, which utilizes 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? The EP-960 helps so you don’t have to bend over to lock in your feet.
2. Traction handles
EZ Stretch Traction Handles included as standard on the EP-960 offer three uses in one, including added stretching and decompression options, easy oscillation assistance and a simple release option from full inversion.

The EP-960 has these larger handles for more control over your rotation than the EP-560. You can go more slowly, or increase and relieve pressure at different angles with each hand.
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. The innovative tracks on the bed accommodate accessories for a customizable experience that adds pressure-point massage or lower back support (Acupressure Nodes and Lumbar Bridge sold separately).
Grip-and-Stretch Handholds built into the ComforTrak Bed and A-frame allow the user to enhance their stretching and decompression.
4. Rotation Control
Stretch Max Handles with embossed inversion angle guide provide an extra-long grip surface to assist new users and enhanced stretching options for more experienced inverters.
Pre-set Rotation Control with the adjustable tether allows you to easily pre-determine your maximum angle of inversion or remove for full inversion.
The extra control is especially useful when inverting for back pain.
5. 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 inch x 28.8 inch x 66 inch (50.8 x 73 x 167.6 centimetre). 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 pressure 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.
