The EP-950 with NEW Ergo-Embrace Ankle System - Inversion Back Therapy with the highest level of comfort and security! Our patented ankle closure system is designed to distribute weight comfortably around the foot and heel, allowing for a more comfortable, secure, and relaxing inversion experience. Add this outstanding new feature to Teeter's patented Flex technology with injection molded construction, along with Over EZ handles, EZ Stretch handles, and EZ Tether Strap for maximum stretching and decompression. Improve back health, relax muscles, decompress comfortably and securely with the Upgraded EP 950.
Whether you want to improve your posture, reduce back pain, or simply minimize your daily stress load, the Teeter Hang Ups EP-950 inversion therapy table makes a terrific choice. Inversion therapy works by placing your body in line with the downward force of gravity. In the process, inversion elongates the spine, increases the space between the vertebrae, and relieves the pressure on discs, ligaments, and nerve roots. And less pressure means less back pain, as well as fewer headaches and neck problems. Inversion is ideal for people with persistent spine and muscle aches, in addition to athletes who frequently push their bodies out of whack through repetitive muscle motions, such as runners, weightlifters, skiers, cyclists, and golfers. Studies suggest that inverting yourself a mere 25 degrees for even a few minutes per day can have tremendous positive effects.
Never before has an inversion table worked with your body the way an EP series inversion table does. The EP-950--Teeter's top-of-the-line EP inversion table--uses Teeter's patented Flex Technology design to move as you move. By working with your body instead of against it, the table accommodates a greater range of motion than other tables, promoting realignment of the spine and relaxing your muscles. The EP-950 then adds an optimal surface for decompression, with a smooth, light-friction texture that allows the body to slide and achieve a premium stretch. Plus, engineering tests have shown that Teeter inversion tables are the most precisely balanced tables on the market. This allows users to control the lockout more confidently in full inversion.
In addition to its EP-standard features, the EP-950 offers a number of upgrades over other Teeter EP tables. The table's ratchet ankle lock system, for instance, offers an easy-to-reach solution in addition to a triple-lock security feature. The table also includes EZ Stretch handles to help increase traction and enhance your stretching experience. To make your inversion more efficient, the table's EZ Angle tether strap lets you preset your rotation angles at 20, 40, or 60 degrees. This provides an easy guide to where the benefits of inversion begin and are fully realized. Finally, the table includes a new Ankle Comfort Dial that adjusts for smaller or larger feet, allowing you to find a comfortable and secure fit for your ankle clamps.
The table's Flex Technology move as you move to further relax your muscles.

PURCHASE: 5 of 5 stars (you get the quality you pay for)
I purchased new from Amazon.com
DELIVERY: 5 of 5 stars
Surprisingly the package arrived in perfect condition - no dents, tears or anything. The box was as good as new. I thought the box might show wear and tear from reading some of these reviews but it was in perfect condition... gotta love those UPS guys!
SETUP: 5 of 5 stars
I found setup to be easier than expected. There are far fewer screws to tighten than expected. In fact I'll break it down for you: Side handles (2 screws each x2 handles) = 4 screws. Handle plastic guards = (2 screws each x2 guards) = 4 screws, Underside carriage support bar =2 screws for a GRAND TOTAL OF 10 screws - thats it. Once you tighten the 10 screws you simply place the back support carriage onto the support stand - then slide the foot support rail into the back support carriage. Thats it ! So setup was easy.
FIRST USE: 5 of 5 stars
Like I previously mentioned, I do not have any major back pains. I just get a slightly sore back after a long day's work. I am 37 years old and just about 200 lbs and work mostly sitting in front of a computer all day. I was curious what would happen first going on my new teeter. First thing I noticed - the 950 contour ankle supports are FAR MORE COMFORTABLE then the padded bar support I used when I was a kid. At 60 degrees incline there was no ankle discomfort whatsoever. I hung at 60 degrees for 5 minutes. The only time I noticed slight ankle discomfort was at full 90 degree inversion (once again this was while only wearing socks and no shoes). Absolutely zero discomfort once you teeter back to 60 degrees or less and no lingering discomfort whatsoever.
One thing I must mention - and I have no idea why nobody seems to mention the flex back support of the teeter. The back rest of the teeter is incredibly comfortable and I thank my lucky stars I have the flexible back support instead of a rigid board like most of the knock off brands. The flexible back support allows bending, stretching and makes it easy to get that lower back crack you just cant get normally. The head pillow is adjustable and I had to adjust it higher after realizing your back actually does stretch and elongate while inverted. I tried the 60 degree inversion for about 5 minutes - It was incredibly relaxing. The dull back pain was gone in an instant and I had zero pain from my muscles stretching. It does feel invigorating to rest at zero incline (flat) and then teeter back and forth using your arms so you go back to about 20 degrees and back to zero and repeat. The biggest unexpected surprise is below:
IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE: 5 of 5 stars
After being on the teeter my first time I felt revitalized. The circulation and blood flow felt amazing and I cannot begin to tell you how relaxed I felt. It was like all the day's stresses literally just floated away. No joke. The best part is - after getting off the teeter and sitting on the couch to unwind I felt so relaxed it had the same relaxing feeling as if I paid for a professional massage. The subtle stretching of the muscles was an unexpected surprise and the relaxed feeling lasted at least 30 minutes after stepping off the teeter. It completely took my stress away.
OVERALL: 5 of 5 stars
I am extremely happy I made this purchase. The contour ankle supports are very comfortable, which was my largest concern. I will be looking forward to relaxing on my teeter for at least 5-15 minutes every day.
Thank you Roger Teeter !
Another ouch is the support braces -when you are fully inverted and doing the twist, I have banged my elbows on these braces a couple times. Some foam tubing slipped over them would minimize the pain of contact.
I've been using this about a month now and although my lower back pain subsided almost immediately, I'm still having great pain caused by my sciatic nerve. I dont really expect the teeter to help with this but it is too early to conclusively say.
I will say one thing, hanging upside down isnt that comfortable. The ankle grips will make your ankles hurt while you hang, and the blood rushing to your head while inverted doesnt feel too good either. These are not necessarily the fault of the teeter, but more the physical stresses of such an un-natural exercise. I have found that you get used to this, but also if you work your muscles (such as partial sit-ups or side-side stretching) while hanging it tends to minimize the effects.
Your mileage may vary. I think hanging 10 minutes at one shot would be punishing...I cant do it yet but maybe I'm a wuss so far I'm only good for a few inversions spaced over 1-2 minute sessions.
Essentially, the EP-950 is as good as traction therapy (in my opinion, at least) as it offers the "spine stretching" that I so desperately needed. Assembling the table is not difficult, and the inversion action of the table is smooth as silk. The major thing I was concerned about was ankle comfort, since being held in place upside-down by shackles at the ankle can be quite painful (anyone who has used gravity boots might relate). However, the ankle-holders on this device are very well padded, and it is also easy to limit the inversion to whatever stopping point one desires, which reduces strain on the ankles as well.
At this point, I do inversion for 5 - 10 minutes a day, and it has worked wonders on my mobility. I am at the point where I don't even think about my injury anymore (most of the time), and I am able to do important things like play with my infant son without getting worn out or not wanting to handle him due to nagging pain. Also, my weightlifting has improved since I feel much more mobile and ready to hit the weights vs. having a constant, 24/7/365 pain that kills all motivation and ruins the mood.
I highly recommend this device to anyone who has spinal compression issues, nagging back pain, or just wants to counter the constant compression wrought by gravity throughout life and relax nicely while getting more blood to the brain. Thumbs up!
