About the Teeter Hang Ups EP-560
Size & Storage:
The size of the Teeter Hang Ups – 560 is 60 x 59 x 29 inches and is foldable thereby not making it difficult for storage. When folded up it is approximately 18 inches hence one can easily slip it under the bed when not in use. However, it obviously requires more space while using it. Since it comes with adjustable settings, your height, even if you are 6’4” tall, doesn’t really act as a hindrance.
Installation & First Time Setup:
It claims to be 90% pre – assembled with only 20 minutes required to do the remaining assembling. Whereas practically it requires more assembling, which we certainly could not complete in the time claimed. It is provided with an instruction manual and a DVD with the requisite video as well, both of which are slightly inadequate. Albeit it does not need joining every nut bolt from scratch, a novice might nevertheless experience difficulty in putting it together. The DVD serves better clarity than the written instructions.

Comfort & Support:
The Teeter Hang Ups – 560 comes with a head pillow and padded ankle cups making it quite a comfortable experience. However, on using it continuously for a long span of time we experienced slight discomfort at the ankles, depending on the body weight. Wearing tennis shoes or socks can assure better comfort. The head pillow could do with a little more cushioning.
The ComforTrak bed boosts spinal comfort, is flexible and provides complete support at all angles. Additionally, it has handles providing good grip and a secured lock – out system which allows complete vertical inversion of the body.
Ruggedness & Durability:
In one word it can be called ‘rock – solid’! It is a lifetime investment and comes with an extremely robust body. Apart from a few screws and minor parts, which may not be that strong, the Teeter EP – 560 is durable with firm welds. It will last for many years without any major wear and tear. The construction of the machine is solid and first rate and it can bear the burden of a tall and heavy person as easily as that of a lanky one. However, an excessively overweight person may require assistance in reverting to the original position from the inverted position. It has a weight limit of approximately 300lbs.

Initially one may experience uneasiness and blood rush, hence it is recommended to use it for 2 – 3 minutes in the beginning and then gradually increase the time.

The track bed has loops to install the acupressure nodes and lumbar bridge which add to the experience.
Warranty & Brand Image:
Teeter is a US based 33 year old company, which has attained a top position in the inversion market. The Teeter Hang Ups EP – 560 comes with a 5 year manufacture warranty. However, the service isn’t really satisfactory.
