Innova Fitness ITX9250 Review
Comfort and support comes from the side handlebars that are covered with foam!
The Innova Fitness ITX9250 Inversion Therapy Table can not only help alleviate back pain, it also helps boost blood circulation. Using gravity, the inversion table helps to stretch the spine and strengthen the back. We were a little apprehensive about the inversion table, as the frame looked a little flimsy, but more on that a little later. It comes with three different angles that allow you to choose your inversion position. Furthermore, the inversion table comes with a foam covered handlebars, padded headrest and foam leg rollers for superior comfort.
The manufacturer claims that the pod-shaped frame of the inversion table ensures stability on uneven surfaces, but we found there were a few balance issues with it. Other than that, it was quite good and we really loved the fact that it was lightweight, just what a person with back problem needs. Also, the frame base comes with protective floor caps that prevent your floor from getting scratched. With one year limited warranty, this inversion table is pretty affordable and effective. This inversion table is ideal for those, who are new to this type of fitness apparatus.
About the Innova Fitness ITX9250
Size & Storage:
The Innova Fitness ITX9250 Inversion Therapy Table is lightweight, weighing a mere 47 pounds. This makes it easy to move around, even if you have a bad back. Its dimensions are 50 x 27 x 60 inches, making it quite space-efficient and compact. It can be folded for easy storage when not in use.
Installation & First Time Setup:
Although this inversion table comes with tools to assemble it, they are not very efficient. The installation manual is well written and easy to understand. The illustrations are good, but do not show where the washers have to be fixed on the screw. Also, we found that with our own tools it took us about an hour and half to assemble it and this setup would have taken a lot longer if we had used the tools provided. Furthermore, we had to read the manual thoroughly before proceeding with the setup.

Comfort & Support:
While there is mesh back support that makes the table surface comfortable, it does not extend to the metal frame. Hence, this can make the frame poke into your hip bones and shoulders when you are lying prone on it. The back pad is lined with a breathable mesh fabric and the comfort and support comes from the side handlebars that are covered with foam for easy and comfortable grip. Even the foam leg rollers, which are oversized, are quite comfortable.
Ruggedness & Durability:
The pod-shaped base frame adds stability to the inversion table, although when assembled it looks flimsy in appearance and may not be ideal for heavy people. As the base frame stays fixed when the Innova Fitness ITX9250 Inversion Therapy Table is being used, it tends to last longer than you would expect. You also can take it outdoors and use it in your garden when you feel like exercising in the open air. The fact that the inversion table may come with a few manufacturing technical errors may not allow you to use it for a lifetime! Nonetheless, the table itself is quite sturdy, durable and rugged.

Ease of Use:
As you use the Innova Fitness ITX9250 Inversion Therapy Table, you will find that it is quite easy. All you have to do is put your arms over your head and you will invert to your chosen angle. We noticed while returning to the starting position, we had to use the safety handles to pull back up. This was a little inconvenient over a period of time.
You may find the frame of the backrest digging into your shoulders, but it can be rectified by padding it up with a towel
