attempt to invert before securing your ankles.
Securing Your Ankles
Prior to inverting, properly secure your ankles by following these steps:
1. With your back to the Table Bed, and using the handles to steady
yourself, carefully step onto the Base Platform to stand next to
one side of the Main Shaft (the Crossbar will be behind your
legs) (Figure 8). Lift the foot closest to the Main Shaft over the
Ankle Lock System and place it on the floor on the other side, to
straddle the Main Shaft.
2. If the Ankle Lock System is closed, grasp the Ankle Lock Handle
and push down, pull slightly closed, then push out to open it all
the way. Release the handle in the open position.
3. To balance yourself, rest only your lower body against the lower
portion of the Table Bed as you slide one ankle at a time from
the side (Figure 9) between the Front Foam Rollers & Rear Ankle
Cups, placing your feet on the Foot Platform.
Do not insert your foot into the Ankle Lock System as you would
slide your foot into a shoe (Figure 10). Your feet should always be
either on the floor or on the Foot Platform; never use any other
part of the inversion table as a step.
4. Press your ankles back firmly against the Rear Ankle Cups, then
slightly rotate the tops of the Cups so they are angled toward the
back of your leg/Achilles tendon. This will allow the Rear Cups to
rotate somewhat as you invert so the cushioned part comfortably
supports your ankles.
Prepare to Invert
Securing Your Ankles (continued)
5. Pull the Ankle Lock Handle towards your legs (Figure 13) and
release when the Front Foam Rollers & Rear Ankle Cups fit snug, with
a close fit against the smallest part of your ankles (Figure 14). Jiggle
the Ankle Lock Handle from front to back to make sure it has
fully engaged and is locked securely. Verify that no part of your
footwear or garments touch or interfere with the Ankle Lock
Ankle Lock System in any way during inversion.
Employ the method of
“HEAR, FEEL, SEE, TEST”
every time you
secure your ankles in the inversion table:
the locking Ankle Lock Handle click into place;
the Ankle Lock Handle to make sure it is fully engaged and
locked in its setting, and
that the Front Foam Rollers & Rear
Ankle Cups are close-fitting around the smallest part of your ankles;

• Ensure there is clearance for the Table Bed to rotate without
contacting other objects or people.
• To begin inversion, push the Rotation Control Button in the direction
of your head. Release the button at the desired angle of inversion
• When first using the inversion table, DO NOT go into full inversion
until you’re comfortable with inverting at 60º and able to reach the
Rotational Control Button from the inverted position. See back of the
Table Bed for illustrated stretches and exercises.
• Increase the duration of use over a period of time if desired. Listen to
your body. Inversion is NOT a no pain, no gain activity.
How to Invert
• Inversion is defined as hanging completely upside down (90°) with
your back free from the Table Bed. DO NOT attempt this step until
you are comfortable with inverting to 60°.
• Press the Rotation Adjustment Button in the direction of your head
and rotate completely upside down. Allow your back to relax and
hang freely from the Table Bed (Figure 17). In this position, you'll have
freedom of movement for stretching and exercise.
• To return upright, press the Rotation Control Button in the direction
of your feet. Stop and rest for a few minutes just past horizontal (0°)
to help prevent dizziness and allow your back to re-compress
without discomfort before returning completely upright.
• Grasp the handle of the Ankle Lock System and press the button at
the top, pull slightly toward you, then push out to open it all the way
(Figure 18). Release the handle in the open position.
• Keep your lower body supported against the Table Bed as you step
onto the floor. Carefully stand up and ensure you have your balance
before stepping over the main shaft and finishing your dismount.
