Teeter EP-560 Review
Earlier this year, Teeter Hang Ups released their new EP-560 and EP-560 Sport inversion tables. For people who believe in inversion therapy, this was pretty big and exiting news since it’s been a few years now since Teeter has had a major redesign. The Teeter EP-560 comes with all the health benefits and manufacture standards we have come to expect of Teeter Hang Ups over the years but in addition to that, a few health innovations makes this product different from its predecessors.
As you may already know, Teeter Hang Ups has been around for 30 years, longer than any other inversion table manufacturer. In fact, they are the only manufacturer that only manufacturers inversion tables. They are widely recognized as the leader in inversion therapy and innovation. Looking at their track record, warranties, UL certified tables and other technical details, it would be clear to anyone even remotely acquainted with inversion therapy that when it comes to inversion tables, purchasing a different brand would be almost foolish ever. After all, you would be hanging upside from the device and you don’t want inversion therapy to turn into an inversion mishap cracking open your skull or something.
The special thing about the Teeter EP-560 is undeniably the ComforTrak Bed, which is basically the highlight of this product offering comfort, and durability that surpasses the standards previously set by the older generations of inversion tables. The new bed is the next design iteration of the Flex Technology bed found on the EP-550 but this is not a step-change like when the Flex Technology bed was introduced. With that said, the new bed is plenty comfortable, capable of accommodating accessories. Also, the three handgrips near the top of the table are very useful for aiding users of this product to stretch.
The biggest change, and possibly the most compelling reason to consider purchasing a Teeter Hang Ups EP-560 over the EP-550 are the foot clamps. The old design supports the feet from the back and the top of the feet. This was a proven design and is still comfortable. The new EP-560 design changes this by incorporating the “Ergo-Embrace” supports that clamp around your ankles kind of like Gravity Boots. These were formerly found only on the more expensive EP-950 inversion table.

A customer review from Amazon
“I’ve been using Teeter EP-560 for some months now and I just had to write a review for this product because I would not want anyone to miss out on the almost miraculous back pain relief this inversion table can help one get. Up until recently, I would stay awake night after night from indescribable back pain but this inversion table really worked for me. Highly recommended! Don’t mind the price. It’s TOTALLY worth it.”
