The Merax inversion table is one good looking table at a fairly low price. Costing around half the price of many of the top end tables available.
Although the Merax padded inversion table is a lower priced option, it is still packed with many of the features you would often expect from a more expensive inversion table.
The most notable feature that make this table a worthwhile consideration, is the very thick padded back support that features heat and vibration massage functionality. The heat and vibration pack can be attached to the table and is an optional choice allowing you to remove the section if not required.
Some do note that the massage function is fairly weak and rather than provide any sort of deep massage it simply gently vibrates. The gentle vibration is however considered by most a nice addition for the price. Also at this price range it is unlikely you will find any inversion table that really satisfies in the massage department.
The heat function is also not up to some peoples expectations as some complain it is a little weak also. Although for the most part, many agree the heat and vibration is more than adequate considering the price they paid for the table. For many the highlight of this table appears to be the comfortable back support, that is very well padded with high density foam and provides a good overall level of comfort.
The Merax inversion table with heat and vibration functions is able to hold up to 300 lbs in weight. It is also height adjustable to suit anyone between 4 ft 10″ in height up to 6 ft 3″.
There is a little bit of confusion on the retailers website as to whether this inversion table can invert past the 60 degree mark. This is due to the table featuring an angle limiting pin selector on the right hand side of the table. The selector limits the incline angle to either 20, 40 or 60 degrees which makes it a good feature for beginners. Once you are more comfortable with using the table however, you can opt to not use the angle limitation selector and invert fully.
One minor downside to this inversion table is the assembly and usage instructions. It is for this reason some were confused by the pin selector option since the instructions fail to mention this safety setting. Due to the instructions being fairly sub par some may have a little trouble with assembly, however experiences do appear to vary. Some seem to have no hassle whatsoever, while others found the assembly took around an hour.
Although the heat and vibration settings could be better, as could the instructions. These issues haven’t lead to any negativity when it comes to the consumer reviews. Many rate this inversion very highly and even though certain aspects of the table could be improved, many are extremely satisfied overall.
Other nice additional features of this inversion table include:
- Dual padded ankle supports that many find preferable to the plastic cup shaped holders on other models.
- Long arm supports on the sides of the table making it easier to return to the horizontal position while providing extra stability.
- The curved floor bar at the back allowing for a better stretch when inclined.
- The small wheels on the back allow for easy maneuverability when the inversion table is folded, reducing the need for heavy lifting.
