If you are a larger size person, these heavy duty Inversion Tables with high weight capacities are sure to be of some health benefit. While Inversion Tables are popular for lower back pain and massaging, as a heavy person an Inversion Table could prove to be more of a health benefit than pain relief. Because of the upside down nature of using an Inversion table it’s very important to check with your Doctor as to whether it’s a good idea or not. As the highest weight rating Inversion table we could find is up to 350 lbs. it’s pretty clear that obese people should not being hanging upside down.
Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic
While shopping for a solution for my chronic lower back pain, I came across inversion tables. Doing all kinds of online research, I quickly learned how these tables can be a wonderful tool for ridding people of neck and back pain, stiffness, problems with their posture, and more. However, like all things in the world, no two seemed alike.
Though I found a lot of similar products,… it was when I found the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table that I knew I had discovered the perfect solution. While a lot of great tables exist, this one grabbed my attention because it had several features that I had not even thought of until reading the product description. A heat and vibration feature and the use of a pin system instead of tether straps.
A lot of inversion tables use a simple and reliable tether strap system to stop the table and hold it in the right spot. While this is good, it doesn’t give the kind of control that the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table’s four-position side inversion pin offers.
Innova ITX9600 Heavy Duty
In this review we take a closer look at the frame design, safety features, cushioning, and customer reviews, as well as making some important comparisons between other inversion therapy tables in the Innova Fitness collection.
Weight capacity provides a good… indication of the frame strength, which is an area Innova have improved upon since the ITX9300 with a 50 lb increase (now 300 lbs).
Although you do have the locking pin for limiting the maximum inversion angle to one of four settings (20, 40, 60, 80 degrees beyond parallel), you’re only able to go to a maximum of 170 degrees.
Exerpeutic Inversion Table with Comfort Foam Backrest
Just when you thought that you had to live with your back pain forever, think again. The Exerpeutic Comfort Foam Inversion Table is here to help you get rid of that annoying back pain, and give you other benefits as well.
This product has a lot of features in… spite of its low price. Even with its simple frame, it can support weight up to 300 pounds. It also has an adjustable height that makes its versatile. So whatever height you have, you can now use an inversion table comfortably, as long as you are within its allowable height range.
You also won’t have to worry about the quality of the product, since the manufacturer Paradigm Health and Wellness Inc., makes it a point to make products that are not only sturdy but affordable as well.
Innova ITX9700 Memory Foam Inversion Table
To maintain the same high 300 lb weight capacity as the ITX9600, the frame has been constructed from 1.5-inch square steel tubing, with a double U-frame design creating a stable base.
The range of height settings… for the back support makes the ITX9700 well suited to a variety of user heights, from 4ft-10in all the way up to 6ft-6in.
Unfortunately you still have the pull=pin design for the ankle holder positioning, which does require more bending down than the patented ‘palm-activated’ ratchet system of some Ironman Gravity tables.
Ironman iControl 600 Weight Extended
Whether you’re looking at a $100 inversion table from Confidence Fitness or a high-end $400 package from Teeter Hang Ups, most inversion tables tend to rely on a safety tether strap to control the inversion.
Secondly, you can make adjustments… midway through your inversion therapy session without having to dismount. If you have more than one person using the table and you’re at different experience levels, this also cuts down on the time you would otherwise need to spend adjusting the length of the strap.
A stretch bar has been fitted to the rear frame for deeper stretching of the back, core, and shoulder muscles, with a storage area fitted to one side for glasses, cell phones, and other small items. One final feature we have to mention is the patented ankle ratchet system with the extended handle.
Ironman iControl 400 Disk Brake System
Most users of this inversion table have enjoyed many health benefits. From muscle relief through to spinal and back relief, it’s a great product and one that’s well worth the money. Some users note there are problems with poorly made components such as the disc brake, but the general consensus is that it’s a well made machine. It can cost more than several other inversion table brands but it comes with a lifetime frame warranty and a 1 year components warranty as peace of mind.
Inversion Table Deluxe Fitness Chiropractic
Back pain is a difficult part of daily life for many people. Some people use pills, yoga or exercise to help relieve their pain. Others turn to a holistic and more energy efficient solution, inverting their bodies on an inversion table. Inversion helps many people by elongating the back, which takes the pressure off of your spine and also helps your blood circulate better.
This one, by far, won’t squeeze too… much out of your budget, which also helps to cut down on stress. The frame is made of heavy duty steel, and the maximum weight that should be on this machine is 300 pounds.
Some clients used the pictures on the cover to help them figure out what is supposed to go where. It does come with cheap tools for assembly, but many people say to use your own tools, as they work better. It also folds up nicely for easy storage. There is also a one year manufacturer’s warranty just in case anything breaks.
Ironman Essex 990 Inversion Table
If you’ve got a bad back and suffer from chronic pain, it is possible that certain forms of exercise like Yoga can help. The problem is that doing exercises like this require a certain amount of back strength in order to be able to hold the poses and positions that the exercises require.
Quite unlike most other tables,… whose frames are made of tubular steel, the frame of the Ironman LX300 is made of a heavy-duty square steel with a 1.5” cross-section. There are no foldable arms here to limit the opening of the A-Frame. To securely lock the A-Frame, you need to use one ring pin provided.
The foot platform is not adjustable at all, so it’s likely that you will end up sliding down a few inches when upside down, till your insteps rest against the foam rollers. It shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re a rather tall person, in which case your head might fall off the backrest, causing you some discomfort.
