The Teeter Hang Ups EP-960 has been upgraded to include optional accessories to elevate your inversion experience to the next level.
Ideal for back pain sufferers, the EZ-Reach Ankle System with extended handle reduces bending when securing the ankle supports. With the included Acupressure Nodes and Lumbar Bridge, you can modify your stretch by adding healing pressure and increased decompression. EZ-Stretch Traction Handles add stretching and decompression options and the large Stretch Max Handles provide support and assistance.
The whole concept of inversion is a simple one. While inverted, your body weight creates traction that lengthens the spine by inceasing the space between the vertebrae. This pressure relief on the nerve roots and discs, means less pressure and therefore less pain.
The Teeter Hang Ups EP-960 can be easily adjusted for your body type, comfortable to use and a simple to fold and store.
- 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
- Smooth, durable and easy-to-clean bed surface
- Acupressure Nodes come in two sizes, adding healing pressure for the supporting muscles of the spine
- Lumbar Bridge designed to enhance the decompression and alignment benefits of inversion
- EZ-Reach Ankle System with triple-lock security
- Adjustable head pillow
- Stretch Max Handles with embossed inversion angle guide
- Folds for Storage to 20" x 28.8" x 66" (50.8 x 73 x 167.6 cm)
So how does inversion really help ?
Realign: The back is supported by hundreds of ligaments and muscles that stabilize the spine but also hold it in compression. When the back moves out of alignment from bad posture, too much sitting, or rotational activities, this support structure holds the body in misalignment. Even while lying down, your spine maintains 25% of standing pressure. In order to decompress, the spine needs a traction force of at least 60% of your body weight, roughly equivalent to inverting at an angle of 60° on a Teeter. This type of progressive decompression naturally re-aligns the weight-bearing skeleton, promoting good posture.
Re-hydrate discs: Damaged discs can take a long time to repair since they don’t have a direct blood supply. Inverted decompression takes pressure off the discs, allowing them to widen and hydrate with nutrients that help expedite repair. The added cushion helps increase shock absorption and flexibility.
Reduce nerve pressure: Inverting on a Teeter has been clinically proven to increase intervertebral separation, helping to open up the passageway for nerve roots. Less pressure means less pain.
Strengthens ligaments: Loading ligaments naturally increases the collagen content for better joint support and injury prevention.
Increases joint lubrication: Decompression aids in joint lubrication by altering the pressure and suction forces within the joint, helping to stimulate the synovial fluid that nourishes cartilage.
Improves joint flexibility & range of motion: The restored moisture in the soft tissue promotes the longevity of joint performance. Encourages proper posture and body symmetry.
Relax tense muscles: Inverting to as little as 25° for a few minutes can help relax muscles and speed lymph flow. A study has shown that EMG activity (an indicator of muscle pain) was reduced 35% after only 10 seconds of inversion. (Nosse, L.: Inverted Spinal Traction. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 59: 367-370, Aug 78)
Decompression facilitates rapid re-hydration and the exchange of nutrients. Lost moisture in discs results in lost height and flexibility as you age.

Not all inversion tables are created equal
Teeter inversion tables are voluntarily tested to satisfy USA UL Classification 60601-1, a medical-grade standard. Additionally, an independent engineering evaluation rated the Teeter Hang Ups EP model with the highest 'factor of safety' of any model tested and it was the only inversion table that cycled without failure.
