For most, an inversion table is a luxury item, but for those who suffer from excruciating back pain, a good quality inversion table is a necessity. It is for such folks that the Ironman Gravity 4000 matters so much. With lumbar traction, it manages to bring immense relief to the back and the spine with reduced stress on the neck and shoulder region thus helping you alleviate pressure from the spinal column and lead a back pain-free life.
The moment you suspend on this table, you are left in a pendulum motion that starts working from the bottom to the top affecting your body as it goes up. Made from the highest grade stainless steel, it uses tubular construction to reduce weight and powder coating to prevent scratching of the body.
The Ironman Gravity 4000 backrest is made from vinyl memory foam that conforms according to the shape of your backside offering sufficient cushion so that the shoulder and neck can bend, contort as per the inversion position. For the floor you get non-skid stabilizers that prevent the table from flipping over and with extra length on the safety bars, you never feel out of control.
This inversion table can take up to 6 feet and 6 inches in height as well as provide support up to 350 pounds. It also features a ratchet locking patented adjustable system that can be controlled by the palm.

Typically an inversion table is a luxury investment that is seen as a recreational tool. It is not something that helps in developing fitness rather a device capable of relaxing the body. On the other hand, a physiotherapy table can work in reducing sprain and muscle spasms. The Ironman Gravity 4000 is a table that is designed along the lines of therapeutic tables with the price tag of a recreational inversion table. It is sturdy, fluid in its movements, and durable because of its construction.
Spoke to one person who received their inversion table in a perfectly packed box, but there was some amount of packaging damage to one side. Thankfully, the table wasn’t damaged in the process and nothing was missing. In under 30 minutes, they got it set up by following the instructions, which was not hard at all. Once the table was set up, she began playing around with it. According to the manual, you don’t have to take it easy from the start since the table swings like a pendulum and does not lock into position. This means that you can either stay inverted at a particular angle by balancing the body or if you feel too stressed out then reduce the inversion by moving back up.
There is no need to release any locking pin or push a button to stay suspended. You only have to move your hands up and down in order to change the inversion angle. This is not a mechanical inversion table so do not expect it to maintain precise inversion angles. It is a gravity inversion table that operates using your body weight. So, expect different behavior based on the user’s body weight and height.
When she used the Ironman Gravity 4000 for the first time she heard a bit of creaking from the center and after attending to a few loose nuts and bolts, this problem disappeared. Having fixed the initial problem I’m happy to report that nothing out of the ordinary happened thereon.
The memory foam tends to reform once you get off the table and the handles retain their integrity just like the footrests. She has been using this table day in and day out for over one month and has not seen anything wrong with it. Each day 5 minutes after work gives us immense relief and frees up the back. In fact, in just a few days after starting with the Ironman Gravity 4000, she started experiencing less back pain and a deeper sleep in the night.
