The EP-960 is a must-buy inversion table. With its innovative and secure mechanisms, those with varying inversion experience will have no problems operating the machine.
The biggest pro of this model is that the many accessories such as the acupressure nodes and lumbar bridge are sold together with the pack. It has a five-year warranty and supports users with heights between 4 feet 8 inches and 6 feet 6 inches and 300 lbs.

What reviewers didn't like

Requires a fair amount of dedicated space (seven feet of clearance.)
Expensive, Acupressure nodes and lumbar bridge sold separately, Ankle supports may cause slight discomfort when used for a longer stretch at a time.
Still, it is far more expensive than the Teeter Ep 560 ltd so that may hinder users from buying it. It is also quite bulky- weighing in about 70 lbs.
