Teeter Hang Ups Dex II Decompression and Extension Machine


The Dex II is a forward-rotating, user controlled inversion machine. The body is placed in a 90 degree position which helps to flatten the lumbar curve for greater separation of lower vertebrae. Traction is applied to the hip joints. The Dex II is ideal for back extension exercises. The unique traction handles offer a method for increased decompression.Perform a variety of body-stretching and strengthening exercises in the comfort of your living room with the Teeter Dex II forward-rotating inversion machine. The machine, which offers a sturdy lap support and adjustable leg supports, puts your body in a fixed 90/90-degree position that helps flatten the lumbar curve and separate the vertebrae. Once in position, users can perform a host of inverted stretches and exercises, from back extensions to spine stretches. The traction handles, meanwhile, help you stretch your lower back in a whole new way, with the ability to increase the decompression of your spine for even better results. And as a bonus, most of the traction is applied to your hip joints and spine rather than the ankles and knee joints, thereby relieving pressure on your most vulnerable areas.

Construction details include a sturdy, square steel tube design, a durable powder-coated finish that resists scratches, and a washable, padded vinyl mat. And thanks to the corner feet, the Dex II is remarkably stable even on slippery floors. The Dex II fits users who stand between 4 foot 8 inches and 6 foot 6 inches and weigh up to 300 pounds. The unit itself measures 28 by 58 by 45 inches (W x H x D), weighs 66 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.

Inversion has changed Roger’s life, and now he is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of inversion and quality products.

I had actually intended on getting a Roman chair to do back extensions, but Amazon’s great price (5) on this dual capability machine convinced me to give it a shot and also add the capability of inversion. As for the machine itself, it’s quite heavy-duty, but very easy to assemble. Make sure you have the floor space available as it does not collapse after assembly. As for user weight limitations, in my judgment it will easily support even the extremely large individual.

The unique design for inversion takes all the stress off the knees and ankles as the weight is supported primarily on the upper thighs, anchored by pads behind the calves. These pads are adjustable vertically, but not horizontally. So, if you have short legs, you will not be able to hold the legs in a 90 degrees angle as you hang upside down ( the lower legs will be somewhat extended behind the pads.) This may be an issue if you intend to invert for extended periods. I have not found it a problem for my ~ 10-min inversions.

Individual machines typically costing 0 or more apiece would obviously do a better job at both back extensions and inversion; however, at 5, this versatile machine is well worth the money. Also, highly recommended for larger users who want the benefits of inversion but cannot take stress on the knees and ankles.

I have a herniate disc at L5/S1 and this version of the teeter hang up has helped me so much. My sciatica down my leg has almost disappeared 1 month after using it. The first few times I used the machine it was uncomfortable for my head because of the pressure, but I have learned to go slower and it is much more comfortable now. It has taken me about a month to learn to relax my muscles, so there is a learning curve for sure. The quality of the machine is excellent. Very sturdy. Overall this is an excellent product.

This item was easily assembled. It is exactly what I expected. A strong and sturdy machine that stretches my back and neck.
If you’re tall your head will hit the floor as this machine does not adjust to the height of the individual.
