Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table


Inversion Therapy counteracts the forces of gravity on the body (particularly the back) by decompressing and elongating the spine. This relieves pressure on your spinal cord’s ligaments and nerve roots. In essence, Inversion Therapy reverses the negative effects of gravity. Using the Body Champ Inversion Table for just 10 minutes a day will allow you to be on your way to improved circulation and posture while relieving muscle aches, back pain and stress. Folds for easy storage.Inversion therapy counteracts the forces of gravity on the body (particularly the back) by decompressing and elongating the spine. Not only can this relieve pressure on your spinal cord’s ligaments and nerve roots, but it can also relax the back muscles that support the vertebrae. And when your back relaxes, the rest of your body invariably follows. The Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table can make a great addition to your daily routine, and help to improve your circulation and posture while relieving muscle aches, back pain, and stress.

The IT8070 is easy to adjust, with a deluxe dual-pin system that lets you quickly find the right position (within a height range of 4′ 7″ to 6′ 8″). It’s also a breeze to use: once you rest your body against the pad and lock your feet behind the ankle supports, you simply reach your arms over your head. As your arms go up, your body will gradually invert until you’re almost completely upside down. The only inputs are your energy and gravity itself. Construction features include a lower spring-loaded pull pin that allows for easy ankle adjustments; four safe and comfortable foam rollers; U-shaped handrails; a safety strap that lets you control the desired inverting angles; and a safety lock for when you aren’t using the table.

The IT8070, which folds for easy storage, will support up to 250 pounds.

Your Back Will Have No Trouble “Getting the Hang of It”, December 16, 2010
This review is from: Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table (Sports)
First of all, don’t buy this if you can’t take hanging upside down, or partially upside down. This is an inversion table, and called such because it “inverts” your body, and so you’re put into an upside-down position. Also know that this device can increase the pressure in your eyes, so if you have eye trouble, check with your doctor first before jumping right in.

That being said, this is a great device that “stretches” the spine. I use the word stretch, but the effect on your spine is a little more than that. When you use this machine, and your body is inverted, this imparts a traction force on your spine, which distracts your vertebrae. So, traction is the force that the inversion table puts on your spine, distraction is the effect.

Now when your spine is distracted, the vertebrae that arw stacked on one another (with a disc in between them), move farther apart from each other- which takes pressure off the discs that lie between them- and this is a very good thing for your discs. This is because the discs are being compressed all day long as we move around in an upright position. Know that the discs have a high water content, and as you sleep in a horizontal position in bed, they actually swell a bit as they pick up water overnight (because they’re not being compressed). Then, when you get up in the morning and move around all day with your spine in a vertical position, this water is expressed to a certain degree throughout the day. This is why you are a little taller in the morning than at the end of the day!

As you can see, this device is very good for your discs- especially ones that are herniated. Other good things this device can do for you is take pressure off pinched or compressed spinal nerves in your back. Since the inversion table distracts the vertebrae a little, this moves them farther apart- which gives the nerves that come out between them “room to breathe”.

Lastly, because you’re hanging upside down, your back muscles don’t need to work- and so they get a chance to relax and get a break! And relaxed muscles make for a happy back…

Consider using an inversion table if the idea appeals to you and you don’t mind hanging upside down (or partially upside down), and the Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table would be a good pick. About the only bad thing I can say about it is that it does nothing to strengthen your back- and for that, I suggest checking out books like Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis. Good luck!

Body Champ Inversion Table, May 29, 2009

This review is from: Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table (Sports)
I’ve had it for about a month now, and I LOVE IT! Hubby and I are even starting to do sit-ups while on it! I have hip and back pains, and althought when they’re really bad, it takes me several minutes to get myself into position on the board. But every time, I’m only on it for 2, maybe 3 minutes, and it’s like a miracle! Pain free for days/weeks! I only use it when I’m in pain, because we live in a very small house and have no open area to keep it perminantly. However, I believe if it were out all the time, and I got on it every day, back and hip pain would be a thing of the past. It does take some time to get used to being upside down. I still have to come back up slowly to avoid a head rush. And as far as stability, I’m 230 lbs, so it’s deffinatelly stable! And as far as the issue some people have had with the ankle bar’s being uncomfortable, I don’t have that problem at all. I find it quite comfortable. Seriously, I highly recommend this!! I don’t know how I lived without it!

Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Table, January 14, 2009
This review is from: Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table (Sports)
Very basic table. It does what is expected. But found a few flaws compared with my Weslo inversion table from Meijers:

Functional:
- Table does not change angle in small comfortable increments when you slide your arms as instructed. Despite table was assembled with the settings in the less sensitive position (bracket position), this table goes from 0 to full inversion with absolutely no control angle and it is difficult to get back to horizontal (despite I’m an athletic person). You MUST have the holding strap in position to limit the max. My Weslo table does a much better job, there. In the Weslo table you can control almost any angle by moving your arms in different positions and is very easy to get out of full inversion without assistance.

Cosmetic:
- Adjustment height numbers printed on a label on the extension rod. These labels tend to get ripped every time height is adjusted. The Weslo table have these numbers engraved in the metal.
- Moving parts are painted. Weslo table have them chromed.

Quality:
- One plastic plug arrived broken.
- One fell apart during assembly.
- Anti-slip sticker on foot bracket came all messed up from factory.
