Merax Pro Back Therapy Folding Inversion Table
Merax Pro is a folding type budget priced inversion therapy table with padded backrest, designed mainly for relieving back pain and stress, promoting blood circulation and enhancing athletic performance. It is offered in black-red and blue colours and with two different designs. It weighs about 40 pounds and measures 55.1 x 27.1 x 60.2 inches and can carry a maximum user weight of 220 pounds. Despite the lower price tag it is a sturdy tubular steel frame for maximum stability so you can feel safe on it and your ankles will be locked nicely and comfortably with the ankle foams that are formed with ergonomics in mind, so you will invert easily to the full 180 degrees and you can get back to the starting position by using the 3-position pivot arms on the sides to help you control the inverting speed. You can adjust the height between 4’10 inches to 6’6 inches. By letting you suspend your body in upside down position or in any position where your head is at a lower level than your legs- during inversion in a controllable motion, the effects of gravity on your spine and back will be eliminated. The way it relieves the most common lower back pain problem is by offering total spine pulling and stretching- relieving the pressure on nerve roots and ligaments, which is actually proven to be quite effective.
Merax Pro can tone your abdominal muscles for improved performance and flexibility and can also help stretch the muscles after your workout during which your joints may have been pressured and this will help you relax and it will be nice to improve the blood flow and decongest the organs. This is a very decent quality product for a very competitive price, so you’re getting more than what you pay for here. You can invert full 180 degrees- 100% inversion with this unit but it may be a good idea to check your lights hanging of your ceiling etc. and the clearance will depend on your height setting. It should be shipped swiftly via Amazon, but unassembled like any fitness equipment you buy online or at the store but includes clear instructions (but one of the customers commented about directions being vague) and shouldn’t take you more than an hour to put it together. And you can start using it straight away but it’s always a good idea to have someone with you in your first session if you’re new to inverting. There are many reviews by customers online that claim that the inversion therapy really works for their back pain problems. But before using any fitness equipment, especially the inversion tables it is best you ask your doctor if you suffer from diabetes, heart complications, glaucoma, hypertension or anything you may think would be relevant.
