I had been bed-ridden the week before, and improving, but still in significant pain and on crutches. That first day, I inverted at only 30 degrees three times (morning, afternoon and before bed). Within 24 hours my back pain was completely gone and has remained so. The next day, I was even able to help my daughter move into her new home, something that would have been impossible for me to do the day prior to beginning my inversion program. It has now now been about a week of inverting 3 times a day for about 3-5 min each at only the most gentle angle of 30 deg. So far, the back pain has remained completely gone and I am absolutely amazed at how quickly and effectively this technique has worked. I am also somewhat appalled that not one of my orthopedic surgeons (nor the one chiropractor I tried) ever mentioned a word about this technique. It's hard for me to believe they are not aware of it. But, being generous, I believe that it's just not in their repertoire of therapies. In reality, it should be at the forefront of their therapeutic repertoire. I'm assuming that the effectiveness of inversion may vary for different people, depending on the cause of their pain. One should also consider the potential risks to someone with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, aneurysms, glaucoma, or other conditions that might present a dangerous situation for some people due to the increase of blood and hydrostatic pressures in the upper body and head when inverted. However, one must decide if the possible benefits outweigh the possible risks, so consult your physician on that question. With regard to the actual machine, it is very sturdy and appears very well constructed of high quality materials. I would very strongly advise you to study the assembly instructions very carefully because we are talking about being suspended upside down to varying degrees here and improper assembly or failure to take this machine seriously could result in a person's serious injury or even death and that is clearly stated in several places by the manufacturer. I would advise a user to enlist someone to be a spotter, at least until you become very familiar with the device and your personal reaction to inverting. I would also advise a user to keep a cell phone within reach just in case you experience a problem while inverting. Do not lock yourself into a room so that someone can get to you in case of a problem. But DO make sure your ankles are properly locked into the machine. I do feel that, in some future version, it would be wise for the engineers of this machine to develope some sort of lock that prevents inversion until the ankle locks have been engaged, just as a safety for someone who might forget to lock their ankles before inverting.
As for me, I've experienced incredible relief of pain. While inverting probably works by causing traction on the spinal column, somewhat separating the vertebrae and relieving the impingement of the spinal nerves, the underlying pathology is probably still present and therefore pain could return if inversion is stopped for a period of time. As a physician, I'm very curious if regular inversion has any potential to reverse intervertebral disc bulging or even herniations because of the reversal of the forces that contribute to these lesions. I plan to get a repeat MRI at some point to see if the bulges and herniations have anatomically improved. I can only say that, for me, this technique has been a great success and, if not yet done, inversion should be the subject of some very serious scientific investigation for the tremendous potential benefit it could provide to the millions of human beings suffering with severe chronic back pain.
On or about 10/2/17 I had a relapse of moderate back pain requiring the use of crutches daily up to and including today, 10/9/17. This is the first significant relapse in the 23 months since I began using the inversion table. I have been using the table about 3-5 times per week but only for short periods of 30-60 seconds at 30 degrees and mainly after workouts with moderate weights using a bench only (never standing). From this I conclude that the underlying pathology is probably still there, although I have not had another MRI since the one prior to using the inversion table for the first time. Therefore, I cannot definitively state if this is a relapse of an existing herniation or a new injury. I can only say that the pain is in the exact same place as it was historically. However, going 23 months without a major relapse when previously I was having serious back pain requiring crutches several times a month before using the inversion table I still must give credit to inversion as a very likely factor in the mitigation of my back pain. Having said this, I can also state that my current relapse is only moderate in comparison to the severity that I had experienced prior to using inversion. Therefore, I continue to believe that inversion was quite beneficial in my case and I continue to use it on a regular basis.
I finally decided to purchase the 960 model - $400 is a lot of money, but when the doctor told me spinal fusion surgery would put me out for 3 to 6 months and have risk of infection and reduced mobility, plus the cost of the surgery insurance deductible - $400 is a bargain.
The 960 is one solid unit. I looked at other less expensive inversions systems, they have less stability, and made me feel like it was going to fall apart and I would crack my skull. The 960 is the best inversion system I have tried. Very easy to assemble. Very easy to use. And my pain has gone away within 1 week of using the 960. I use it about 4 times per day for 2 minute sessions. I have it setup in the bedroom so you literally walk up to it, secure your ankles and tilt. 2 minutes later your done and thats it, simply walk away. No time spent setting up, no fuss, no driving to the gym.
The really nice thing about the 960 is the hand grips. It makes you feel more secure holding them as you tilt backward.
I recommend beginners use the tether strap to invert only to 60%. It feels like you are simply laying down on a bed and it slightly reclines. Your back naturally stretches, it's not a massive blood rush to the head.
Seriously, do your body a favor and buy this. You are worth it.
like many, i saw the television commercial and was highly motivated to find some relief for my worsening back problem. based on the very positive tone of more than 100 reviews i ordered the 960.
i have a Grade 2 (20%) displacement of my L4/5 Vertebrae and endured a couple of episodes (last Nov and mid Feb) that, let's say, weren't pleasant. even after the episodes i had developed 24 hour pain along with little sound sleep.
i received my 960 approx April 1. i found it very well engineered.
i started at 35 degrees, after a week 65 degrees and finally in two weeks full inversion. full inversion is key, do not judge results until you are full inverted. i have been doing full inversion 3 times a day for 2 minutes. recently i bumped it up to 3 minutes. it seems that positive effects relate linearly to time spent inverted.
partial pain relief was immediate and it appears that the longer i invert the closer i come to being pain free.
prior to the inverter i had been doing situps etc as directed by physical therapy... with no measurable effect. i am surprised that my therapist didn't mention the inverter option. since purchasing it one of my brothers, who has a similar back problem, purchased a 960 after doing a couple of minutes on my machine. he said his back immediately loosened and he felt better after 3 minutes than he had felt in years.
i combined my 960 with a Tempurpedic memory foam 3 inch mattress topper (around $400) and now sleep almost thru the night.
i of course can't speak for other types of back problems but the 960 is my new best friend. .
ONE YEAR UPDATE:
it has been a year since i received my Inversion Table and i have continuously been doing 3 two minute inversions daily. my serious back pain decreased as soon as i transitioned to full inversion and has decreased steadily over the year. my back still does get a bit tight after sitting at my computer but after doing 2 minutes upside down the pain disappears completely as my muscles get stretched out a bit. i do recall the extreme pain of a year ago and it does motivate me to do my time inverted. my brother has had the same results.
thanks to Mr Teeter and to all the AMZ reviewers who initially sold me on the machine. i will bet there are zillions of people with painful back conditions that are busy doing situps, getting pain killing shots and adjustments with modest results that would be SO relieved if they had one of these machines.
that, of course, is the reason i take the time to post a review.
go for it.

Solid professional feel.
It stands folded out of the way, not using much room.
Pleased at the value of our purchase.
Great everyday use, quick and easy setup.
My only complain would be that the back support panel (blue) is not very comfortable and the feel takes some getting used to, so I suggest putting a thick tower over it so that your back is supported by a softer material than this hard plastic.
Make sure the floor is leveled underneath or you might have to shim and add rubber pads underneath so that there is no "wobble".
Die Aufbauanleitung ist gut verständlich, ausführlich bebildert und didaktisch wirklich gut aufgebaut, allerdings nicht in Deutsch verfügbar. Die schön bebilderte und laminierte Anleitung hängt mittels kleiner Kette "fest" am Gerät. Das ist Unsinn, da ich die Anleitung in die Hand nehmen muss um diese zu lesen. Habe sie also entfernt, danach war die Kette nicht mehr verschließbar, also nicht mehr am Gerät anzubringen. Deshalb und wegen des fehlenden deutschen Supports ein Punkt Abzug.
Auspacken und Aufbau hat etwa 30 min gedauert und konnte von mir (weiblich) alleine durchgeführt werden.
Sehr stabile Konstruktion. Absolut standsicher. Die Querstreben die ein Zusammenklappen verhindern lockern sich minimal nach einigen Anwendungen, das verunsichert . Ich habe diesen Klappmechanismus zusätzlich gesichert. Die Markierung für die Größeneinstellung passt für mich nicht. Um eine ausbalanzierte waagerehte Lage zu erhalten muss ich statt 160cm eine Größe von 170cm einstellen. Die Fußauflage ist locker drehbar und kann nicht in hohe oder tiefe Position arritiert werden, was aus meiner Sicht besser wäre.
Die Auflage (blau) ist hart. Nach einem konservativ behandelten Bandscheibenvorfall und noch bestehenden Ischiasschmerzen ist der Ausstieg schmerzhaft. Ein Polster wäre hier bestimmt hilfreich.
Alles im allem, nach einer Woche Erfahrung, bin ich zufrieden mit dem Kauf.
