We have one (if we are talking about the thing you strap your feet in and it flips over backward).  Used it once I think.  I don't recommend it.

I have a friend who has one.  He loves it.  Says it's great for his back.

He's a little weird though  Tongue

Probably because it's ugly and I don't like looking at it.  Also, we never use it so that could have something to do w/it.

It can also be dangerous and people can actually injure their backs.  Always use it when another person is in the house because I know of one guy that flipped over and could not get back up...this was on a really old one though, maybe there are safety catches on the new ones.

If you get one please be careful!

im interested in this thing too. i wonder if it works?
if you bring your knees to your chest, wrap your arms around your legs, and roll back and forth on your back on the floor or a mat it opens up your spine and decompresses your discs like this gadget is supposed to. its much more simple, maybe not as effective, but it feels great! i try to do them before and after legs/back/calves or whenever i feel like it!

I swear by it. Everytime I do back or legs, I spend 20-30 mins inverting afterward.

A trick; I've removed the ankled holders on mine and instead use snowboard boots, which fits in the brackets and will save your ankles.

I have suffered from back pain due to a slipped disc and inflamed psoas for about a year I tried everything chiro, massages, phys therapy, etc. and nothing really worked then I started using an inversion table in December, bottom line I haven't had any back pain since. 

I've even had the weirdest strength increase since, again for a year my deads were stuck at a particular weight which I could do for 8 reps and if I even increased the weight by 5 pounds with a couple of spacers I absolutely couldn't move it.  Well since using the table at my gym trying to stay on for about fifteen minutes every other day or so my deads max has gone up by about 130 pounds which is finally back to what I was doing before I slipped my disc.

At first I would do about three 5 minute intervals with stretching in between because It hurt my ankles for a while but it eventually got easier and my goal is to hang for 15 minutes every other day.
