Inversion tables are meant to help the average person with back pain as you age. Everyone struggles with back pain every now and again, and some people need a little help to get rid of it after a long day. Inverting on an inversion table helps to elongate the spine, taking the stress off of your muscles and vertebra while also increasing circulation and blood flow. The Ironman Gravity 4000 Inversion Table by Ironman is designed to give you the most comfortable invert while also trying to save you money.This table comes with a sturdy heavy-duty steel tubular frame and, unlike other tables, the weight capacity is 350 pounds, that’s 50 pound more than most inversion tables! It also has a powder coating on the frame to help resist scratching. The back-rest is a highly comfortable memory foam nylon, which isn’t seen on many other tables. The pad is also thicker than most other tables for extra comfort. It also has a detachable lumbar pillow. The ankle holders are ergonomically molded for even more comfort as you invert. Instead of bending over to lock your ankles into place, which can be hard for some, the Ironman Gravity 4000 Inversion Table comes with an extra long handle on the foot clamp, which makes it easier for anyone to get safe and comfortable in it. Even barefoot, the ankle lock is comfortable with the deluxe palm-activated adjusting ratchet ankle-lock system.Inverting is simple, letting gravity do most of the work up to a total of a 90 degree angle. If you don’t want to do a complete 90 degree angle, that’s fine with the tether strap system to lock in any angle. The extra long handles will also help to get the right angle or to get back up to a standing position. Also, instead of the usual steel handles, this table comes with vinyl side handles for extra grip while using it, they are also double stitched, making them a lot more durable than regular stitching.
Assembly is easy, thanks to the very well written instructions and can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on your skill set.On the bottom of this machine, are four very tough rubber floor stabilizers, so you don’t have to worry about the machine slipping while you’re on it.

What’s the verdict
With many inversion tables on the market, I’m sure you’re wondering what one to buy and which one will help you the most while saving you money. I’ve reviewed many tables, and this is one that I can say I like the most. It has the least amount of negative reviews that I’ve seen so far. The thick nylon memory foam back rest isn’t something that many tables have. This cuts down on complaints that it is uncomfortable to use, plus it comes with the detachable lumbar support. It uses heavy-duty tubular steel and it’s set widely to support the extra weight. The weight capacity is more than I’m used to seeing for inversion tables, supporting an extra 50 pounds more than most tables. This one has vinyl handles which will help you grip as you either invert or some back to a standing position and a longer foot clamp handle, making it easier for people who have a limited range of motion, and the palm-activated adjusting ratchet ankle-lock system is also something unique to this machine.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Ironman Gravity 4000 Inversion Table to anyone who is looking for a sturdy and durable machine. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it is heavy, which would make it harder to move around or to store. Having only one complaint about the machine makes it a definite recommendation for me!
