Product Description

Amazon.com

If you're plagued by back pain, stiff joints, or suffer from stress overload, consider the Teeter Hang Ups F5000 inversion table, which helps to counter the effects of too much time spent sitting, standing, or moving repetitively. It's also a great way to add extra crunch to exercises like sit-ups. The F5000 is specially engineered to provide a comfortable and secure inversion experience. The equipment features heat-treated, high quality carbon steel and triple-plated chrome.

The Teeter Hang Ups F5000 rotates on a pivot system. With simple arm movements (rotation is accomplished by shifting the weight of the arms), the table easily rotates to any comfortable angle. The smooth rotation allows for oscillation and intermittent traction. Adjustable roller hinges allow you to pre-select three levels to control the aggressiveness of rotation, and the tether strap allows you to pre-select the maximum angle of inversion. Comfortable ankle clamps hold you securely while inverting. Additional support can be gained by use of the optional Teeter Hang Ups Gravity Boots.

It's able to lock at full 90 degrees inversion (this is only possible when using the more aggressive roller hinge setting). While at 90 degrees, you can perform inverted sit-ups and squats. The table is self-controlled and can be unlocked with simple arm movements.

Feature Detail:

  • Removable, washable nylon mat with triple-stitched seams removes easily for cleaning
  • Teflon embedded epoxy-coated roller hinges for guaranteed smooth rotation with no squeaks for the life of the table; patented cam locks ensure proper assembly
  • Durable, injection-coated rubber hand grips feature an embossed guide to the angles of inversion
  • Adjustable tether strap allows you to preset the tether strap for worry-free inversion to any angle
  • Heat treated high quality carbon steel used in key structural components for increased strength and durability
  • Curved foam ankle clamps offer a unique design that allows for greater comfort and security while inverted
  • Self-locking hinges secure the table bed to the A-frame for improved security and portability
  • De-rattler knob reduces shaft movement to allow for quiet, shift-free rotation--the only design on the market to structurally engage the main shaft
  • Triple-plated chrome main shaft with steel wall thickness at least 20 percent greater than any main shaft on the market. Features embossed height markers in both inches and centimeters for easy adjustment
  • Height capacity: 4'8" to 6'6"
  • Weight capacity: 300 pounds
  • Assembled dimensions: 45 x 28 x 58 inches
  • Folded dimensions: 66 x 28 x 14 inches

About Teeter Hang Ups
Roger and Jennifer Teeter founded Hang Ups Inversion Products in 1981 and have been dedicated to manufacturing quality inversion products ever since. Roger and Jenny truly believe in the benefits of this simple, natural form of therapy that has been around since 400 BC. In the late 1970’s, Roger tried many forms of therapy to help manage his pain. He finally discovered that by inverting, he was able to relieve his back pain and begin the road to recovery. He credits inversion for keeping him pain free, healthy, and active. Inversion has changed Roger's life, and now he is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of inversion and quality products.

All Teeter Hang Ups F-series inversion tables are classified in accordance with UL 2601-1 (medical equipment in a clinical setting), a rigid specification that tests the structural integrity of the equipment.

I'm 42 and have had one of these for I'm guessing 12 years. Before that, I was using some inversion boots. I use this almost every evening. I got it because after heavy jet-ski riding in my 20's, I had some nerves pinched in my lower back. The doc wanted to put me on medication. The chiropracter wanted to crack my back 3 times $$$ per week. I tried my own solution - inversion. During all these years of inversion, I've never really felt a back or neck pain. Haven't had any side effects from its use. When someone new get on it, they usually don't like it. It takes your body a while to used used to being upside down. I like to invert before going out in the evening - perks you up taking a load off your spine. IMO, this is an under-recognized anti-aging device. This is a good model to buy - looks like it hasn't changed since I purchased mine a long time ago.

Verified Purchase
I bought this table to relieve the pain from a pinched nerve in my neck. It worked so well, I loaded into my Honda when I visited my mom for a week. She tried it for relief of her sciatica. (She's 68 years young.) It worked so well, I left it behind for her to use and bought myself another one!

The quality is excellent. It's heavy enough to feel solid but still light enough that I can move it. It adjusts easily for multiple users. It takes up a lot of space but folds up small enough to go in a closet. It's GREAT!!

NOTE: The maximum height for any user of this table is 6'6", the minimum is 4'8". Maximum weight: 300 pounds.

We tend to sit all day (and have a long commute.) After a while, my spine feels "crunched" down and I get upper back pain. I've found that inverting gives me a good stretch, is really relaxing. I like the Teeter Inversion table better than others I've seen.

The reason to use an inversion table is to stretch your spine. Normally, you stand and your legs and pelvis and stomach support the spine. When you sit, you increase the pressure on the spine by resting on your coccyx (tailbone). So for people who sit all day, inversion can actually act like traction, using gravity to pull the vertebrae and decompress the spine.

As you hang or lean at various angles from 20 degrees to 90 degrees -- totally upside down, your head gets more blood, your stomach muscles lengthen and stretch and your shoulders relax because you put your arms fully over your head.

You can gradually build up your angle from 20 degrees, allowing you to adjust to the new feeling in your head and spine. You can use the table to do rocking (down to your set angle, back up to level or vertical) or you can do intermittent traction (1-2 minutes down, 1/2 minute up.) In the fully suspended 90 degree position, your body is literally hanging by your ankles and you can do twists, sit-ups, squats and back arches. This is not possible in the shallower angle positions as you are lying on the table in those positions as opposed to freely hanging with spine straight.

You may not use any bands, weights or other equipment while on the table. You MUST wear tie shoes with flat, even soles (no thick soles, no high tops.

Is a very good unit, is easy to put together and simple to fold. Very smooth operation. I would recommend, however, that if you are having back problems, you should get someone to help you put it together as some of the components are a bit on the heavy side.

Have had the unit for over a month now, and my back is MUCH better. I don't wake up with back pain anymore. I used to have "numb" sensations that ran down my legs, and a constant "dull" ache in the lower back that would never go away... but now the pain and numbness are gone.

An interesting "side-affect" of the table is that it also helps your sinuses! If you have trouble draining, just flip upside-down and get that nasty stuff moving with gravity! If you're prone to sinus-infections because it sits in a "mass" inside your head and can't drain, this will help.

I recently purchased the F5000. The construction seems good and once on the table it is sturdy. Standing beside the table it wobbles easily with just a simple nudge, but to my surprise it is very stable after climbing on.

There are a couple of design flaws that nobody commented on. First, there is a support cross brace directly behind the nylon backing, which hits directly on my lower back area. I tried adjusting heights, but it still makes contact. The nylon backing has too much give and appears to already be stretching out and I'm only 5'9"/165. The other issue is the locking ankle clamps. It is somewhat difficult to get your feet in and out with shoes on. If you are fully inverting you are going to want to wear shoes.

I think the best bet might be solid backboard with padding. However, I thought the nylon would be nice because it's breathable. As far as the ankle clamps go, straight foam padded ankle clamps or one of those easy-to-reach handle release bars might work better. I tried the Teeter Hang Up GL9500: the ankle clamps must have opened farther, but I don't remember if the cross bar was an issue. Think some pipe insulation may work for padding that annoying cross bar, but who knows. Happy hunting, it was a pain (no pun intended) to find a place to test different models and make a final decision. To me this machine isn't worth more than $150, hope this info helps you decide.
