teeter-ep-560-ltdThe Teeter EP-560 Ltd belongs to the lower end Teeter inversion tables. However, that doesn’t make it any less effective.

In fact, it has helped me be free from back and shoulder pain for quite some time already.

It is very easy to set-up, thanks to the instructional materials and tools that come with it. It also has a comfortable backrest and helpful handles for a totally relaxing experience.

There are minimal flaws but overall, the Teeter EP-560 is a good inversion table.

Pros:

  • Sturdy
  • Easy assembly
  • Adjustable height
  • Accurate balancing
  • Preset inversion markings
  • Comfortable backrest

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • Heavy
  • Difficult ankle release mechanism

Features

Ankle Supports

teeter-ep-560-ltd-ankle-supportsWhen inverted, the gravity pulls your body weight and puts pressure on your ankles. Therefore, comfortable ankle supports are very important.

The Teeter EP-560 Ltd has Ergo-Embrace Supports that surround your ankles for safety and comfort. However, it still gets sore after a while so I recommend wearing thick socks.

You can also buy the EZ-Up Gravity Boots with Conversion Bar. It minimizes the pressure on your ankles while keeping you securely locked.

Preset Rotation

I don’t have to estimate the length of the tether strap to control my rotation.

Like other Teeter inversion tables, the EP-560 Ltd also has preset markings. You can easily adjust the degree of inversion to 20, 40, or 60 degrees.

Accurate Balancing

Because of the table’s precise balancing feature, it is easy to have control over your rotation.

As long as you correctly set the table’s height, your arm movements will shift your body weight so you can easily invert further or shift back to the upright position.

While it does not have a padded back, the material comfortably flexes with your movements.

There is a removable head pillow and lumbar bridge for added support.

Those colorful bumps are Accupressure Nodes. They are placed in different pressure points to help release tension and relieve muscle discomfort.

Design and Specifications

The Teeter EP-560 Ltd measures 60 x 29 x 58.50 inches (L x W x H). Although it claims to be space-saving, it is actually quite bulky.

At 58.6 lbs., the table won’t be easy to transport so you better find a dedicated space for it.

This sturdy inversion table has a maximum weight capacity of 300 lbs.

You can share this table with your spouse or anybody who wants to try inversion therapy. It can fit users from 4’8″ to 6’6″.

Users between 4’8″ and 6’6″ can use this inversion table comfortably.

What is the user weight capacity?

Do I need special boots?

Thick socks will do. However, you may purchase the Teeter Hang-ups Gravity Boots separately for a customizable ankle lock fit.

How is the Teeter EP-560 Ltd different from the Teeter EP-960 Ltd?

The main difference is the extended handle in the EP-960’s ankle lock system. It enables you to release the ankle locks without bending too much.

The EP-960 also has traction handles that let you push a button to quickly release from full inversion.

Other Options

However, it also comes with a pretty hefty price tag.
