Independent lab, Dynamark Engineering evaluated inversion tables from all the major brands to the new Underwriter Labs inversion table standards (UL 1647). Test criteria included testing in the following attributes:
- Static Load
- Functional Endurance
- Ease of Assembly
- Performance to Full Inversion
- Noise Testing
Watch the video for details, some of the inversion table failures are rather scary considering that you could be hanging upside down on one of those!
Only the Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table made it through the testing without catastrophic failure. Teeter was ranked top in all the categories above.
About the new UL 1647 Standard
Underwriter Laboratory has introduced this new standard, requiring testing to the standard for an inversion table to receive the UL Mark (effective 8/2011). In the past there has been no separate standard for inversion tables, so Teeter Hang Ups has had theirs tested to medical grade equipment standards (the only brand to earn the UL Mark with those standards as well).
