Health Gear ITM5500 Review

The Health Gear ITM5500 Advanced Technology Inversion Table is a comfortable and stylish inversion table that has a very attractive design at very low cost which is under $200. 

The Health Gear ITM 5500 comes with a backrest that has a padded foam of 4” which makes it very comfortable for the user.

In addition to this, it also comes with an optional heat as well as a vibration pad. It can handle a user with a weight of approximately 300 lbs. 

It is ideal for users in the height range of 5’ 1″ to 6’ 5″.

The Health Gear ITM5500 does not come with the regular incline system with a tether strap that is found in other inversion tables. Instead, it comes with a very comfortable side pin.

In contrast to the changes in the tether strap, with the side pin, you need not leave the table to adjust the angle of incline. 

The side pin is used even to curb the inversion angle to either 20, 40 or 60 degrees.
