Comfort & Support:
The Teeter Hang Ups EP-550 Inversion Therapy Table is designed for ultimate comfort and support. The foot platform comes with Ankle Comfort Dial™. This dial can be adjusted based on the size of the feet to ensure that the ankle clamps fit comfortably and securely while you are inverted. The EP-550 also comes with a head pillow, which is adjustable and allows you to find the best position based on your height.

The shaft is made from triple-coated chrome that not only makes it scratch resistant, but also extremely strong.

Ease of Use:
While it can be easy to go overboard with the Teeter Hang Ups EP-550, we suggest you go easy. Do not use the inversion table for longer periods initially. It is best to keep the usage under 5 minutes, as initially you will have a slight soreness. However, with time, you will be able to extend the length of usage to 10 to 15 minutes.
The EP-550 comes with three preset angles of 20, 40 and 60 degrees and an adjustable foot platform with 2 settings for optimal ankle support and comfort.
Warranty & Brand Image:
The EP-550 is an imported brand from China. It comes with a 5-year warranty that is more than the warranty period offered by other inversion table brands. You can use the inversion table for 30 days and if you are dissatisfied with the performance, which we doubt, there is a hassle-free money-back policy. While the EP-550 is an excellent product, there are some complaints about its customer service being substandard. We found that warranty complaints are not handled efficiently and this can leave a bitter taste in the mouth.
Overall, the Teeter Hang Ups EP550 Inversion Therapy Table is an outstanding product when compared to other similar products. While it is slightly more expensive, but you can rest assured that your back will benefit from regular use.
