COMPARATOR / Inversion Table
Many people suffer from temporary low back pain, recurrent pain or temporary blockages of the back. New product claims to help reduce low back pain and back pain, the inversion table.\n
So what about those inversion tables? Are these inversion tables usually priced between $ 100 and $ 400 really effective and can they help reduce low back pain? This is what we will try to see through the following points.\n
Does the table have ergonomic handles, a stable and robust steel frame and a strap to ensure optimum safety during movement? Are the cushions padded?\nIs the table adjustable to suit users?
The angle of inclination is a very important criterion. This angulation makes it possible to vary the traction force and therefore the constraints in the muscles of the back and the spine in order to relieve them.
The dimensions of this type of device are generally large. The seat on the ground is important aspect since it is what gives it great stability. Security and stability are essential. These must also adapt as best as possible to the user.
Even if this criterion is subjective (each person will obtain different results) we try to evaluate the contribution of such type of equipment.
This is a very important aspect for us, especially when we have our head down and our feet in the air. We do not play with the back. Security aspects are therefore carefully studied.
We test the inversion tables in real conditions, with users of different sizes having more or less pronounced pain. The tests are performed after approval from a healthcare professional.\n
Our selection criteria relate above all to the security aspect. We then evaluate the ergonomics, their precision, the placement and inclination of the table, the safety, the finish and the design.
