The EP-950 with NEW Ergo-Embrace Ankle System – Inversion Back Therapy with the highest level of comfort and security! Our patented ankle closure system is designed to distribute weight comfortably around the foot and heel, allowing for a more comfortable, secure, and relaxing inversion experience. Add this outstanding new feature to Teeter’s patented Flex technology with injection molded construction, along with Over EZ handles, EZ Stretch handles, and EZ Tether Strap for maximum stretching and decompression. Improve back health, relax muscles, decompress comfortably and securely with the Upgraded EP 950.Whether you want to improve your posture, reduce back pain, or simply minimize your daily stress load, the Teeter Hang Ups EP-950 inversion therapy table makes a terrific choice. Inversion therapy works by placing your body in line with the downward force of gravity. In the process, inversion elongates the spine, increases the space between the vertebrae, and relieves the pressure on discs, ligaments, and nerve roots. And less pressure means less back pain, as well as fewer headaches and neck problems. Inversion is ideal for people with persistent spine and muscle aches, in addition to athletes who frequently push their bodies out of whack through repetitive muscle motions, such as runners, weightlifters, skiers, cyclists, and golfers. Studies suggest that inverting yourself a mere 25 degrees for even a few minutes per day can have tremendous positive effects.
Never before has an inversion table worked with your body the way an EP series inversion table does. The EP-950–Teeter’s top-of-the-line EP inversion table–uses Teeter’s patented Flex Technology design to move as you move. By working with your body instead of against it, the table accommodates a greater range of motion than other tables, promoting realignment of the spine and relaxing your muscles. The EP-950 then adds an optimal surface for decompression, with a smooth, light-friction texture that allows the body to slide and achieve a premium stretch. Plus, engineering tests have shown that Teeter inversion tables are the most precisely balanced tables on the market. This allows users to control the lockout more confidently in full inversion.
In addition to its EP-standard features, the EP-950 offers a number of upgrades over other Teeter EP tables. The table’s ratchet ankle lock system, for instance, offers an easy-to-reach solution in addition to a triple-lock security feature. The table also includes EZ Stretch handles to help increase traction and enhance your stretching experience. To make your inversion more efficient, the table’s EZ Angle tether strap lets you preset your rotation angles at 20, 40, or 60 degrees. This provides an easy guide to where the benefits of inversion begin and are fully realized. Finally, the table includes a new Ankle Comfort Dial that adjusts for smaller or larger feet, allowing you to find a comfortable and secure fit for your ankle clamps.
The table’s Flex Technology move as you move to further relax your muscles.
Other details include a robust base with A-frame tubing and corner feet; auto-locking hinges, cam locks, and heat-treated steel parts; a de-rattler knob and specialized pivot bearings that ensure a lifetime of squeak- and rattle-free rotation; a scratch-resistant powder coating and a triple-plated chrome finish; and a plastic injection-molded construction with easy-to-clean surfaces. The table also comes with an Advanced Secrets to a Better Back instructional DVD that includes five 10-to-15-minute exercise and stretching classes. The DVD is hosted by Dr. Shawn, and includes such workouts as Good Morning (wakeup and warm up your spine); Strength & Stretch (build your core muscles); Posture Correction (look better and function better); Gym Ball (specialized core-building class), and Inversion Table (to receive the maximum benefits from your inversion table). The only inversion table on the market that can be modified with accessories, the EP-950 folds in just a few seconds to 28 by 66 by 16 inches (W x H x D) for easy storage.

Its the 850 but looks exactly like this one. GREAT!,
I have chronic upper back pain and a pinching the nerves in my spine that affect hands and forearms. Once, I had a 2 week spell with sciatica and couldn’t walk from lower back. They have never bothered me at the same time. Upper back is my usual problem.
Normally, I toss and turned all night with numbness and arthritic pain in hands and forearms. I searched to see if this Teeter Table has helped anyone with upper back problems as most of the praise was about relief of lower back pain. My search only found another person with the same question and no answer.
This thing is great. I now have hope. It has helped relief dragging pain and discomfort I have come to know as an all-the-time thing. I thought it might help a little but not this much. WOW! The first night after using it, I slept so deep and my pain and numbness was much relieved. I slept through the night til 5:10 instead of the usual, up every two hours. Still, I developed the pain (pretty strong) by the end of the work day. I went home used it to relax and teeter on. What a great stress reliever it is. I also inverted all the way back this time for a few seconds. Really pulls the weight of your head off the spinal column. I spent a lot of time on it just inverting minimally while my daughter told me about her day. (She loves it too to relieve back ache and stress).
Then I slept well all night with minimal numbness and pain with deeper sleep. Only woke up once in the middle of the night.
2nd night: Slept great, pain much less than day before, and a great day at work with no pain WOW! I just wanted to make sure I told you how great it is because my inclination (no pun intended) would be to invert my happy self off into the sunset. Good night! Buy it it’s well worth the money! Oh one more thing. Do watch the dvd on assembling it. That will save you a lot of time putting it together. My daughter and I did it in a reasonable amount of time. It is well made and you feel secure with how well it is put together. Happy inverting! I will try to update if any changes develop.

Great for Backs and Necks!,
I had borrowed a F-8000 from a friend when I was diagnosed with “stenosis” of C4-C6 vertebrae in my neck. The neurosurgeon I consulted after my MRI suggested neck surgery, but after hearing the possible side effects, I decided to try other things. I used the F-8000 in the morning and evening, gradually working up to a 60? inversion angle, for 10 minutes/session (=2 minutes inverted and 30 seconds up for a total of 5 reps). Using it from April-August, I became symptom free after only two months, and continued to use it because it felt good after a long swim or working out with weights. When my generous friend needed his Teeter back, (his back issue had flared up) I started looking around for my own, but of course the F-8000 had been obsoleted. One of the things that was a little challenging on the F-8000 was reaching down after inverting to release the ankle clamp mechanism. The EP-550 had the same type of mechanism, and if you have a back issue, it takes a few moments of bending at the waist to feel comfortable enough to release your ankles. But on the EP-950, there is an easily reached lever that you just push down on to release the lock and then move the lever away from away from you to release you ankles. The extra 9″ of reach on this lever really helps your lower back. The flex system on the EP series is nice since you can move easier from side to side to stretch the back if you want. The F-8000 had a stretched fabric backing (like the F-4000), but there was a bar that depending on your height would contact your lower back (my wife encountered this problem), But on the EP-950 and presumably the EP-550, the plastic back rest has the support bar recessed back, away from the contact surface, so it is very comfortable. The little pillow supplied with the EP-950 is helpful to reduce the friction, if you, like me, want to move your neck back and forth when partially inverted (20-60?). It is adjustable in position through the larger holes in the table. I have not had issues with ankle discomfort like some, perhaps because my weight is around 180 lbs. One thing that I do not like as much is the restraint strap that is used for restricting the inversion angle. On the F-8000, there were preset loops installed on the strap to allow 20, 40, and 60? inversion angles, but on the EP-950, there are only color coded markings on the strap, so you have to adjust a buckle to change the setting – less convenient and not as quick as the preset color coded loops on the F-8000. Its not a big deal now, since my wife is inverting at 40?, and I am not restricting my inversion and typically now invert between 60? and complete inversion (90?). The EP-950 is really solid and is very well constructed. I have been very impressed with the quality of the Teeter brand. The assembly was straight forward, but the diagrams on the assembly instructions sheets left a few doubts on some steps, so you may want to look at the DVD that comes with the inversion table to look at some of the steps in detail. It easily folds up for storage, but it is rather heavy, and requires two persons to comfortably move it any distance. The teeters are occasionally on sale, but mostly the prices are fairly constant across most of the internet sites. Amazon had a sale on the EP-950 that made it a little cheaper than other sites when I bought mine. Shipping was included in the price (as for most sites). I am very pleased, and will be using it for the foreseeable future because the positive and real benefits to my neck and back.
Update, August 7, 2010. Have had this for almost a year and have been symptom free on my neck. I use it after every workout, bike ride, or swim. Both my wife and I use it (she every day) at 60? (I do total 90? inversion for my last two inversions out of five). It has become a part of our normal routine. I love the ease of the cam-lever foot release which is really easy on your back. And this thing is solid. Had to spray some Tri-flow on the pivot surface because we had it in the garage in the winter, and it squeaked a little, but it is working perfectly, looks brand new…

Teeter Hang Ups EP-950,
This is a great product and worth every penny. I bought it because I have back pain and pinch nerve causing my right arm to be numb. since I have used it on average 5 minutes a day the pain and numbness are gone! I wish I knew about this product long time ago.. Hope my feedback will help people having the same problem I had.
