Both the ITM5900 and the LX9 have lockable systems for inverting angle selection. Both systems work a bit differently, but both have angle positions that you can choose so that you get the exact angle stretch that you want.

The ITM5900 model comes 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 as you stretch 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.
The lumbar pad that is situated on the lower back is designed to provide close up heat to one of the most stressed areas of the back.
Along with the massage pad, the lumbar pad also gives an added element of comfort that allows the muscles in the lower back to warm up and relax into the stretch for an even better invert.
2-Way Adjustment System
The ITM5900 comes with two different ways of adjusting the table for maximum comfort. There is an adjustable headrest and an adjustable height setting that allows the user to fit them just right.
These customizable settings make sure that whatever your needs are while inverting is taken care off by being able to adjust to the exact form and angle you want.
The headrest makes sure that your head is situated against the pad so that it is comfortable enough to invert for a longer period of time and the adjustable height settings allow you to change the leg length of the ankle holders so that they are neither too high, nor too low on the leg.
Although both of these inversion models have many great features, the ITM5900 still comes out ahead.
The lumbar heat pad and the spine massage pad make this the most innovative and unique inversion table of the two, and the safety pins and adjustable settings allow more inverters to use it confidently.
So, it is clear to see why the ITM5900 is chosen as the best of the best.
