Things in Common
Although both of these inversion table models come with different features that set them apart, they also have a number of things in common.
Due to these models both being made by the same company, they both have similar Innova features. Here are a few things that both inversion table options have in common.
Both of these Innova inversion table models are made to handle up to 300 pounds of weight on them safely and securely. This allows for heavier inverters to get the back-pain relief from an injury with the promise of safety that comes with Innova products.
Both of these options also allow for the same height limits and are made to be able to hold one person between the height of 4 feet 10 inches and 6 feet 6 inches tall.
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 ITX9600 to the ITM5900 that set these two inversion tables apart.
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.
There are multiple heat settings so you can adjust it to your liking without getting too hot.
2-Way Adjustment System
The Innova 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 people to use it confidently.
So, it is clear to see why the ITM5900 is chosen as the best of the best.
