The Innova company has recently upgraded one of its best inversion tables so that it now contains even better options for back pain relief.
The Innova ITM4800 is one of the earlier models that first came with a heat and vibration massage setting.
Now, Innova has come out with an upgraded version called the Innova ITM5900, which has been improved with a few new features to make this product even better.
Differences and Similarities
Both of these inversion tables have different additions and specifications that differentiate each model. But, they have some similarities between them too.
- Innova ITM5900 has massage pad designed for spinal area concentration
- Innova has massage and vibration with lumbar pad for lower back only
- ITM5900 has a protective cover for the 6-pin system
- ITM5900 has ergonomically designed ankle rests for comfort and minimized pressure
- Both have a weight capacity of 300 pounds
- Both accommodate users from 4 foot 10 inches to 6 foot 6 inches tall
- Both have 6-positions safety pin systems for choosing inversion angle
- Both have adjustable headrests
- Both have a True Balance System which makes getting on and off easier
Things in Common
With both of these Innova inversion table models being made by the same reliable company, there are some similar features that belong to both of these table options. Here are some things that they both have in common:
Both of these Innova inversion table models are made to handle up to 300 pounds of weight on them safely. This allows for heavier inverters to get the back-pain relief with the promise of safety that comes with Innova products.
This is done by adjusting the headrest to the desired height of the person and the ankle rests to the leg length of the inverter so that they rest comfortably against the leg without strain.
Unlike previous methods, this feature is an added safety measure that is a safer option than the previous one, Velcro straps, which could come undone and change the angle unexpectedly.
These inversion table models both have the Innova True Balance System which enables its users to get on and off the machine with ease. This is done by moving the headrest and the height adjustment tube so you can find your center of gravity easily.
With other tables, you may struggle to get back into the upright position and end up pulling yourself back up with the handlebars. This way, you avoid having to do that.
Although both of these inversion tables have a few things in common, they are not made exactly the same. There are a few major differences that can be seen from the ITM4800 to the upgraded ITM5900 that set these two products apart.
The massage pad that comes with the Innova ITM4800 model is one that allows for heat and vibration on the lower back.
The lumbar pad is placed near the bottom of the backrest and can be used for extra heat and vibration on the lower back to loosen up the muscles in order to get a deeper, more effective stretch.
However, the ITM5900 model upgrades this idea with a full spine massage pad that aims to focus pressure and heat on the spinal cord area. This will help to loosen up the entire back and keep the user from hurting themselves by pushing too far.
This also gives an added layer of comfort for those who are in pain because of the heat to warm up the muscles that will relax and take the pressure off at the same time.
6-Position Pin Protection Cover
Although both Innova ITM models have the same safety pin system that allows you to choose from 3 different angles of inversion so that the table will hold that position and not go any further, the ITM5900 has the added feature of having a protective cover over the pin system so that is not moved while you are inverted.
The ITM4800 doesn’t have any sort of covering for the pin system, which could end up moving if hit by accident, changing the angle of inversion abruptly. The safety of having a cover is something that speaks for itself.
Ergonomic Ankle Rests
Both models have a similar ankle rest feature that allows for various height adjustments for different inverters, but the ITM5900 has specially designed ankle rests that help to relieve pressure from the leg while inverted instead of pulling at the led to keep you in place.
This is made to be more comfortable for the inverter and makes it easier to stay inverted for a longer period of time without strain on the ankle.
The cushion that is used is extra padded so that your ankle will be safely kept away from the metal bars that hold up the inversion table.
The clear winner between the two models is the upgraded Innova ITM5900 model because of its new and improved features.
The newly designed ankle rests, the spine focused massage pad, and the new 6-position safety pin system cover, this model has everything you could ask for in an inversion table so that you get the best back pain relief possible.
