When it’s time to get off the table, you simply push the pin on the handle in between your feet to release your ankles.
However, it would have been more helpful if the handle was a little bit longer so you didn’t have to bend over as much.
The ankle holders can get uncomfortable when you are inverted for longer periods of time, so it is advisable to wear thicker socks.
The Exerpeutic allows you to control the maximum angle of inversion. It has a tether strap that you can adjust depending on your desired degree.
However, the strap is made of nylon that is quite weak. For your peace of mind, you can replace it with a stronger, adjustable belt.
Long Handle Bars
The length of the Exerpeutic handle bars allows you to easily return to the upright position.
Then again, the foam that covers it gets destroyed easily. While it does not affect the safety or functionality of the table, a tougher foam cover would have been more desirable.
Aside from a safe and sturdy frame, the quality of the backrest is another major consideration in buying an inversion table.
The Exerpeutic has a soft foam covered in vinyl. It is very comfortable and has a beautiful burgundy tone.
