Inversion equipment is a tool that helps relieve backs pains by relieving the nerve roots as well as the ligaments on the spinal cord. As you feel your back relaxing, the rest of the body follows.
This is ideal for people who have recurrent or consistent back pains. The size of inversion equipment basically depends on what type of inversion equipment you are looking at.
Size of Inversion Equipment
Before you begin to choose what size of inversion equipment you want to get, you first have to determine which type you want to get. There are inversion tables as well as inversion chairs otherwise known as hip-supported inversion equipment.
Inversion Equipment: Tables
This inversion equipment are pretty much like a bed where you are required to lie down on the surface, secure your ankles with the ankle support attached to the equipment and adjust the table according to the height that you want.
You can find inversion tables in dimensions of 61 inches in length by 64 inches in height by 28.5 inches in width.
There is also an inversion table that is of smaller dimensions and this is around 55.5 inches in length by 29.5 inches in width by 58 inches in height.
This size can basically provide support for users up to 250 pounds and you can adjust the height from 4 feet and 7 inches up to 6 feet and 8 inches.
You can see that while the second model has smaller dimensions, it provides more options for height adjustments. This is basically determined by the manufacturer.
Inversion Equipment: Chairs
For those who find the ankle clamps that go with inversion tables quite uncomfortable and sometimes even painful, inversion chairs are the better option.
These require you to sit instead of lie down and you are supported through your thighs instead of through the ankles.
The size of inversion equipment that is of the hip-supported style is typically around 41 inches in length by 29 inches in width by 45 inches in height.
This has an adjustable height starting at 4 feet and 8 inches up to 6 feet and 6 inches. This size of inversion equipment can usually support users of up to 300 pounds or roughly about 136 kilograms in weight.
Both the inversion table and the inversion chair can be easily folded, making them very easy to store when not in use as they do not take too much space.
