About the Ironman IFT 1000
Size & Storage:
The Ironman IFT 1000 Infrared Therapy Inversion Table has dimensions of 54 x 29 x 7 inches. It weighs 50 pounds. The weight may make it difficult for you to move it around, but the good news is that the inversion table can be folded for easy storage. However, it does not prop up on its own and would need to rest against a wall or door. It is easy to open and close.
Installation & First Time Setup:
It takes about an hour to assemble the inversion table from scratch. While the assembly can be straightforward, the illustrations in the manual are not very clear and the instruction font size quite small. This makes the setup tedious and arduous. You can easily do the assembly on your own, but having a helping hand will hasten the process. The parts are carefully marked and labeled, so it is not that difficult if you put your mind to it.

Ease of Use:
The memory foam on the backrest ensures that with constant use you will be able to get comfortable the moment you get into the inversion table. The main drawback that the Ironman IFT 1000 Infrared Therapy Inversion Table has is lack of handles at the base of the frame that you can hold on to when you are completely inverted.
Also, the heating unit is mounted at the back of the backrest and this can make it difficult to read the heat setting if you do not have the LED remote in the pouch at the side of the frame. Nonetheless, the remote allows you to find your ideal temperature setting. There have been complaints from people that they were unable to get the heating started, but we didn’t face this issue.
