If two inversion tables look similar, they must be the same...right? In side by side comparisons of inversion tables, consumers may have a diffi cult time identifying the differences between Teeter and competing brands in regards to materials and features that are vital to their security and product longevity. What factors should you consider when making your purchase decision? How can you validate claims of “safety” and “quality” so that you can make the best choice for you and your family? Here are some important considerations for inversion tables and how Teeter stacks up:
» Certification Marks. Teeter makes the only inversion tables certifi ed by Underwriters Laboratories®, an independent product certifi cation organization that has been publishing and testing to safety standards for more than a century. Teeter’s manual inversion tables meet the medical-grade equipment standard, as well as the new inversion table 1647 Listing, the ONLY standard that effectively tests the inversion table to “real world” use, evaluating key safety factors such as cycle minimums, weight load, ankle restraint endurance, and rotation under extreme conditions.
» Top Ratings in Comparison Studies: In independent engineering reviews comparing competing brands of inversion tables, Teeter Hang Ups was rated Number 1 across all categories of evaluation, outperforming in static load and functional endurance trials, ease of assembly (with ¼ the average unassembled parts), performance into full inversion, and noise tests (only Teeter did not creak or squeak after months of use).
» Specialized Features: Looks may be deceiving. What may not be immediately obvious are vital design features for user production and reliable function. Teeter inversion tables offer more specialized features than any other homeuse model including heat-treated steel, auto-locking hinges to prevent accidental separation of the bed from the base during stretching or exercise, special squeak-free roller bearings and the optional accessory upgrades. Teeter products are designed with function in mind – no gimmicky features like memory foam that actually inhibits decompression.
» Built for the Benefits: Teeter inversion tables are designed to achieve results. The patented Flex Technology™ on the EP and Contour-Series moves with you, promoting greater range of motion and stretching to help realign the spine and relax muscles. The smooth surface reduces friction, allowing the body to slide and achieve the fullest decompressive stretch. Precision balancing allows total control with simple arm movements and rotation without overacceleration, enabling smooth oscillation which encourages fl uid exchange in the discs and soft tissue of joints.
» No Skimping: Be wary of lighter weight inversion tables – less weight often equates to less steel. A product that looks fi ne on the surface may actually bear shortcuts that compromise quality and user security like thinner tubing, cheaper materials, and a weak support structure. Heavier tables can also be deceiving – features like padded bed frames weigh more, but an increase in bulk doesn’t always equate a stronger table. Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Tables stand apart from others in the marketplace - Teeter understands the essential engineering needed to make a truly exceptional inversion table and puts extra steel in the key components where it matters!
» Stability: Teeter inversion tables feature a base-to-height stability ratio that averages 20% greater than competing models. The smaller the ratio, the greater the risk of product instability. Teeter’s tapered A-frame design and corner feet not only look good, but provide a reassuring foundation whether you’re doing sit ups, stretching or oscillation.
» Manufacturing Experience: Since 1981, Teeter has designed and manufactured inversion equipment exclusively, building a reputation for incomparable quality standards, testing and marketing efforts. You can put your trust in Teeter Hang Ups, the most enduring brand of home-use inversion products on the market.
» Customer Service: No other inversion equipment manufacturer offers Teeter’s level of service and product support, including live customer service agents available Monday-Friday and a comprehensive website that includes everything from benefits information to warranty registration.
» Warranty: Out of all the inversion equipment manufacturers, Teeter offers one of the longest, most extensive product warranties: 5-years for home-use inversion tables, covering every component.
There are currently no adequate government regulations to effectively oversee the structural integrity or reliable function of inversion tables. Therefore, the market is vulnerable to products that are manufactured with inferior quality standards. With no way to quantify manufacturer claims of “safety,” this term is commonly used without substantiation. What does Teeter mean when we say quality?
» Certification Marks: Teeter makes the only inversion tables certified by Underwriters Laboratories®, an independent product safety certification organization that has been publishing and testing to safety standards for more than a century. Teeter’s manual inversion tables meet the medical-grade equipment standard, as well as UL 1647 featuring the new inversion table testing requirements that evaluate stability, ankleestraint function, rotation control, and other key factors vital to reliable structural integrity.
» Top Ratings in Comparison Studies: In engineering reviews comparing competing brands of inversion tables, Teeter Hang Ups was rated Number 1 across all categories of evaluation, outperforming in static load and functional endurance trials, ease of assembly (with ¼ the average unassembled parts), performance into full inversion, and noise tests (only Teeter did not creak or squeak after months of use). Simulated-Use: Each inversion table was loaded with the manufacturer’s maximum rated user weight and cycled repeatedly from the foot down to head down position. This emulates actual use, producing alternating loads on key structural parts. If not properly designed, the table can fail in fatigue, which is what occurred with the vital components for all four competing brands. All failed within 2.4 years of use or less (one year is equivalent to a household of two rotating twice per day per person). Teeter remained structurally sound for over 27 years without failure (the test was stopped for time). UL 1647 requires a minimum of 30,000 cycles at the rated user weight as its standard of safety - while Teeter surpassed this easily by over 10,000 cycles, each competing brand fell short of this requirement by 26,500 cycles or more! Strength: In the fully inverted position, weight was applied to determine the maximum static load each inversion table could withstand before failure. Unbelievably, one competitor actually failed under a load of only 180 lbs! The strongest competitor failed at only 400 lbs. By comparison, Teeter held a load of 1440 lbs. - that is 4.8 times the rated maximum user weight of 300 lbs. and more than 3 ½ times the strength of the strongest competitor. This incredible difference is possible only because Teeter uses heat-treated carbon steel in key components, which produces a steel 3 times stronger than normal. The low failure load of the competing tables is especially concerning because the inversion table bounces during full inversion with exercise, causing a potential increased load of 2-3 times the user weight. Assembly: An average user built each model by following the instructions provided. Assembly time for the competing products spanned from 54 to 110 minutes (almost two hours!) for an average of 70+ minutes per table in contrast to the 13 minutes required for assembly of the Teeter inversion table.
