The item was not new, it was partially put together and put back in the box. The assembly manual was not correct and hard to follow. There was no manual included on how to use. The leg support is not comfortable and the spring loaded bolt does not move easily or lock in place. The adjustment for the height is difficult to move and the measurements are off.
Overall it's easy to use and I feel safe and secure when I am using it. There are some quality control issues with the device which I point out in the video (holes not drilled to the right size / parts not welded correctly), and you'll get to see how puffy my face gets when I'm hanging upside down.
The very first time I used it I did not like how full my face felt, but I have to say that my back felt GREAT. I actually slept better that night than I have in a long time - and I've had chronic back pain for years so this definitely made an immediate difference.
I know there are people who don't believe this is a medical device, and I'm not going to comment one way or another - you're just going to see what the device actually looks like and how easy it is to use. Your mileage may vary - keep in mind you need a LOT of space in your house for this.
Enjoy the video and I welcome your comments!
The Gaiam Inversion Table is sturdy and works very well. However, I'm not terribly impressed with the overall quality. The parts look cheap and crudely constructed. The backrest looks and feels cheap; it's simply a nylon cover over a metal frame. I also find the mechanism to lock my ankles in place a little unwieldy.
There are a also few problems on my unit: A couple of plastic end caps are loose and pops off very easily, the label with height adjustment markings is partially ripped off, there are a few prominent scratches on the frame's powder coating, and one of the ankle rests is slightly misshapen.
The Gaiam Inversion Table does its job, but for the price, I expected a bit more quality. I recommend that you take a pass on this one. There are lots of other inversion tables, many of which are very favorably rated, that go for a lot less.
Cons: Some assembly required turned into over an hour of assembly. It is hard to store and is too heavy for one person to move. If you have a bad back that is a really big problem. It takes up quite a bit of room. In our house the TV is in our family room and with the conversion table in the middle of the room it's quite hard to see around. I, too, had problems with the plastic end caps falling off. Also, I find having to bend over to lock your ankles in is very hard on an already aching back. It came with no instructions on how to use and since we are first time users, we had to get on the internet to see what we were suppose to do. How long do we use it, how often? The general rule seems to be a few times a week for 15 to 20 minutes. I have been inverting for approximately 10 minutes a day.
We both found that trying to use your hands on the rails to pull yourself up and push yourself down did not work well. I just did not have the strength in my arms to push myself into an inverted position. We found that if you use one of your arms and move it back over your head, you tilted back a lot easier than depending on the handrails. Overall, I think it is a good investment and helpful for the pain in your back.
