A good value
on November 23, 2012
Originally I was going to purchase one of the more expensive 'nicer' versions but shipping prevented it. I live in Hawaii so shipping with this (and all products) can be limited. However, it was a blessing in disguise because this product works well and was a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the 'top of the line' versions.
I've been using it daily for the past two months after I pulled my back and was walking around like an old man, in pain, for about a week. Anyway, my back is feeling better now and I'm not sure if the inversion table was the main reason or the fact that I did hardly any physical activity and let my body heal on it's own. I estimate it's probably a combination of both the inversion table and plenty of rest.
For those considering this purchase keep in mind you'll want to wear comfortable athletic shoes when using this. It takes a week or so to get used to 'hanging' by your feet. While it's kinda uncomfortable at first you'll get used to it quickly. This is not a small or light product but it's easy to assemble and sturdy. When it's folded it is still rather large and unless you have an elevated bed (like us) you might not be able to slide it underneath a bed for storage.
Overall, I recommend this product because it's a good value.
