The only bad thing about this table is the price. Other than that, we love the Teeter Hang Ups EP-960.
All Teeter hang ups tables are made with high quality materials and this is no different. The ankle holders have a triple lock system to ensure your secure, and they are designed ergonomically to fit you comfortably.
The rest is also ergonomically designed so it will flex with you as you use it. Great for comfort and for resting on the exact area that is giving you grief. If your aim is to stretch and work out on this table, it is great for added comfort and security.
Well – Designed
The 960 has the added benefit of traction handles by the side of you where your arms can reach. Useful, as they enable you to stretch in a variety of ways that you cannot on other inversion tables. Furthermore, the handles come with a push button release from full inversion. This is the sort of feature people pay $800 more for when buying a motorized table.
Another added benefit the 960 has is that it has an easy reach system to unlock your ankles. If you’re using the table because you have a bad back, you may find this feature invaluable. You can set the table to 20, 40 or 60 degrees maximum if you’re worried about fully inverting by accident.
As you may expect from Teeter, the table is also extremely well balanced. Most Teeter models will guarantee you a smooth, rattle-free inversion after years of use, and this model uses the same design.
Teeter hang ups tables are always durable – you feel extremely secure and safe when you’re lying on your table or when you are inverting. And if it doesn’t, you’re covered – all Teeter tables come with a five year warranty.
The Teeter Hang ups EP-960 has a weight and height capacity of 300 pounds and 6 foot 6 respectively. This is generally a standard.
Teeter provide more add-on’s for their inversion table’s than any other brand. The 960, like the 560, is especially designed to cater for acupressure nodes, a lumbar bridge, and a vibrating infrared heated cushion. The acupressure nodes aren’t very good, but the two other accessories work well.
The 960 also comes with bonus material from “Dr.Shawn,” It’s a pretty good add-on, but nothing you can’t find online for free anyway.
Teeter tables aren’t that difficult to set up, but the 13 minutes advertised is inaccurate. We always advise using your own tools, having help setting up, and buying a table you like the look of and have space for (as most people find it is too much effort to fold their table away after each use).
Teeter tables also include an instructional DVD with their product, and we advise watching that before you proceed.
This table comes highly recommended. When you buy with Teeter there is an added satisfaction and assurance of quality. You get durability, a warranty and a well-designed table. Obviously the issue is the price. The EP-560 is about 60 dollars cheaper, minus the easy release ankle system and traction handles, so think about how important these are to you. Furthermore, you can get an Ironman IFT 4000 for cheaper, and we believe that’s a brilliant table – so be sure to check it out before going ahead and buying. This is a brilliant table – we’re just not sure the added features justify such a price.
