Prior to going out of business in 2007, Lifegear manufactured nine models of inversion tables. Using an inversion table involves tilting your body at an inverted angle using a specialized teetering table. Lifegear inversion table model no. 75165 was once the now defunct company's best selling model. It is easy to use with a few simple instructions to get started. Consult your physician before using your Lifegear Inversion Table.

Partial Inversion

Step 1

Prepare the table. Connect the nylon strap located at the base of the table. It controls the degree of inversion. Tighten the strap for less inversion and loosen it for more. Make sure the adjustable boom is positioned properly. The boom lists heights in inches and centimeters. Adjust it so that it is set at 1 inch higher than your height.

Step 2

Stand on the instep frame with your back toward the table. Pull the black spring-loaded pin to secure your ankles into place.

Step 3

Lay back with your head against the table and rest your hands across your chest. Your body will begin to invert on the table.

Step 4

Lift one of your arms to increase the degree of inversion. When you're ready, lift both arms to increase the inversion degree even further.

Step 5

Disconnect the nylon strap from the main frame if you want total inversion. Secure your ankles and lay back with your head against the table. Lift your arms and your body will completely invert on the table.

Step 6

Reach up and grab the handles to pull yourself up from a position of total inversion.
