The EP-560 Ltd and EP-970 Ltd is rated for users between 4’8″-6’6″ and up to 300 lb.

Currently, Teeter is not carrying inversion products that exceed a 300 lb/6’6″ rating. Please contact Teeter customer service for alternative options.

Does the Teeter Inversion Table fold for storage? 2016-12-28T12:19:28+00:00

Yes, no disassembly required! Storage dimensions are 20″ x 29″ x 66″.

How much space will I need? 2016-12-28T12:19:36+00:00

The fully assembled dimensions are 60” x 29” x 59”. The largest footprint (set at the tallest height setting of 6’6”) is 87” x 29” x 85”. You will need to ensure adequate clearance for the ceiling, furniture and bystanders.

How much does the inversion table weigh? 2016-12-28T12:20:27+00:00

The EP-560 Ltd. is a sturdy, well-built piece of equipment constructed of heavy-duty steel, weighing about 67 lb. You may need some help with the box initially, but once the equipment is assembled and folded for storage, the inversion table is easier to transport.

How come this website won’t accept my credit card? 2016-12-28T12:20:34+00:00

If you have selected the trial or multiple payment option, it may be that your credit card expires before the end of the payment period OR that you are attempting to use a prepaid credit card. You can either try a different credit card or select the full payment option.

Is the inversion table covered by insurance? 2016-12-28T12:20:38+00:00

Some insurance companies do cover inversion equipment and some do not. Unfortunately, Teeter is unable to assist with the insurance billing process. You will need to communicate directly with your health care provider and insurance company.

Have questions about the use of your inversion table? 2016-12-28T12:21:57+00:00

1. Be sure you read the Owner’s Manual that comes attached to your Teeter, which offers very helpful and important instructions on how to adjust and use the inversion table properly.

2. Watch the Instructional DVD, which not only walks you through adjusting and using the inversion table, but also demonstrates what you can do while inverted.

3. Check out the answers to our most frequently asked questions about inversion under “Product Use” along the top of this page.

4. Call Teeter customer service or click “Let’s Chat” on the lower right of your screen (during business hours) we’re happy to help! 800.847.0143 (8am-4pm, M-F).

When will I feel benefits? 2016-12-28T12:20:59+00:00

Some may feel the benefits right away, some over a period of 2-3 weeks of routine use. The key is getting your body to relax and release, which may take some time until you become comfortable with inverting.

Will I get dizzy? 2016-12-28T12:21:06+00:00

The sensation of blood rushing to your head will ease as you get used to inverting. You can prevent dizziness upon rotating upright if you pause just above horizontal to allow your body to re-adjust.

Do I have to invert to a full 90 degrees to get the full benefits? 2016-12-28T12:22:42+00:00

No! Benefits start at a mild angle of 20 degrees. To fully decompress the spine, work up to 60 degrees (the angle of the rear legs). The Angle Tether allows the user to easily pre-set the angle of inversion so you never go farther than you want. It’s interesting to note, however, that over half of all Teeter customers do routinely fully invert (“lock-out” at 90 degrees) because they like the way it feels and enjoy the added freedom of movement for stretching and exercise.

What do I do upside down? 2016-12-28T12:21:21+00:00

Many people simply kick back and relax. Others incorporate movement and stretching to maximize the benefits. Some even exercise to strengthen the core and legs. The Instructional DVD and Healthy Back Routines will show you how!

How often should I invert? 2016-12-28T12:21:37+00:00

Frequency is more important than duration. We recommend inverting several times a day. Inversion is great for waking-up, recovering after a workout, or de-stressing before bed.

How long should I invert? 2016-12-28T12:21:42+00:00

Several minutes is all most people need to fully decompress. Listen to your body.

Are there health issues that would prevent me from inverting? 2016-12-28T12:22:03+00:00

Practically anyone can benefit from using a Teeter on a regular basis. Most normally healthy individuals are able to invert. Be sure to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. Learn about contraindications.

How does it work? 2016-12-28T12:23:36+00:00

Inverting with a Teeter allows you to target back pain at the source naturally, using your body weight and gravity to elongate and relax tense muscles while decompressing your spine and weight-bearing joints.

Who is Roger Teeter? 2016-12-28T12:26:00+00:00

Teeter was founded in 1981 by Roger Teeter and his wife Jennifer, who have invested much of their lives educating people around the world about the benefits of inversion therapy.Roger first heard about inversion at a water ski tournament. At the time, he was suffering from severe back problems resulting from an auto accident and the toll of water skiing professionally. On worst mornings, Roger would have to crawl to the bathroom to run hot water over his back so that he could function throughout the day. He also wore a large brace with metal rods to support his back every time he skied for 5 years! Roger finally discovered that by inverting, he was able to relieve his back pain and begin the road to recovery.

Roger benefited so much from inversion therapy that he decided to start a company dedicated to manufacturing high quality inversion products. Sky’s the Limit (STL) entered the inversion market in 1981 with Hang Ups brand gravity boots and inversion tables, now widely known as Teeter. For over 35 years, Teeter has been widely recognized as the leader, innovator and quality pioneer within the inversion equipment market.

Roger Teeter is a graduate engineer of the University of Wisconsin. He has over 50 years of experience in the development of fitness and sports equipment. In addition to inversion products, he has led the company in over 200 projects to develop new products for other companies including many medical and dental items. Roger was recently recognized by the American Water Ski Education Foundation for his pioneering design contributions.

What should I know about your company? 2016-12-28T12:26:02+00:00

Teeter is the only company to continuously manufacture inversion equipment since 1981. Teeter is the inversion market leader, the premier brand of quality inversion products for home, clinical and commercial fitness use.

Teeter is a family run business. Roger and Jennifer Teeter grew the business for nearly three decades before turning over day-to-day operations to their daughter, Rylie Teeter Leier, who has honored their work ethic and tenacity by making Teeter a household name and continuing to instill the highest of quality standards on the production line.

Teeter corporate offices are located in Puyallup in Washington State, about 20 minutes east of Tacoma and 40 minutes south of Seattle. An amazing view of Mount Rainier right outside our windows reminds us how lucky we are to live in the Northwest.
