After a car accident that kept me bedridden for around 90 days, I was struggling with muscle fatigue and weakness. I also had issues with my back and with very limited flexibility. I had been nearing the end of my physical therapy when I asked my PT if they had heard about at-home inversion therapy. A little familiar with it, she spent a bit of time talking with me about it. Though she couldn’t recommend any specific tables or even advise me about it in general, she did say she had heard a lot of good things from patients who used their own tables at home.
I decided to dig in and do a bit of research for myself. I found a lot of tables, ranging widely in price, features, and functions. The ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table was one that caught my attention because of its unique “E-brake” feature that allowed those with waist problems to better control their inversion speed. Having some issues with my abdominal area and lower back, the choice of a manual control was very appealing.
Of course, there were many other features, and I could quickly see that the ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table was probably a good option. I was right.
Three Position Roller Hinge
The ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table uses the classic tether strap to ensure the table stops at the right angle, but it also features an easy to adjust, three-position roller hinge that ensures you have total control over rotation. This provides a lot of peace of mind since you tend to use inversion tables on your own.
I had a friend spot me the first few times I used it to be sure it was comfortable and easy to use, but I didn’t actually need the help. I was able to just hook the tether and adjust the rotation and I stopped comfortably. The E-Brake feature is entirely unique as well and is an easy to reach braking mechanism for those who might have problems at the waist.
Totally Adjustable for All Users
The overall design of the bench on the ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table is very high-quality. With a separate headrest and a wide backrest (the hip width is a super comfortable 16″) it offers the kind of support you need whenever you have a back problem. What I really appreciated was that the ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table can be put to use easily, safely and comfortably by very petite people or very large people.
The adjustable user heights vary from 4′ 10″ to 6′ 5″ and the sturdy steel frame allows people up to 300 pounds to safely and comfortably use it. The bench is upholstered in PU leather and is non-skid and easy to clean. A comfortable pad at the waist and lower back area adds even more support.

Customer Reviews and Scores for the ALPINE Pro Deluxe
I looked at the customer feedback at Amazon.com for the ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table because I always appreciate the honesty that buyers use when discussing their thoughts on a product.
Naturally, it would have its pros and cons, but in general this table rates incredibly high. A 4.7 out of five possible stars is the average for it, and 72% of those who have purchased it have given it a perfect, five star score. There were no truly poor ratings, though around 14% of buyers did give it three stars.
The reasoning for the middle of the road ratings were pretty surprising and had nothing to do with the inversion table itself. Instead, people were frustrated that the instructions were not easier to understand. “Product is very good … assembly pictures unclear” is the worst that anyone had to say. Obviously, this does not reflect badly on the table, and it was one of the reasons I decided to move forward with the purchase.
After all, the rest of the comments had things to say like “Excellent quality”, and “you will be happy with no more back pain”. As you might guess, it was that second comment that really got me.
I agree with those positive, nearly perfect reviews and scores. The ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table is a solid product. It is very sturdy and I have complete confidence in it. It met all of my expectations and exceeded them in some areas. The descriptions are accurate and honest, and I was very satisfied.
Is the ALPINE Pro Deluxe Inversion Table a good option for you? If you are looking for a well-priced inversion table that provides a lot of control and flexibility, then it’s a good choice. Not only is it comfortable for people of different sizes and easily adjustable for everyone in your home, but it also provides a lot of features that can make it a better answer for multiple users.
I was interested in the E-Brake and the roller hinge, as this made it easy and safe for me to use on my own. Someone else might have found that the padded hip area and separate head rest were positive points too. In other words, it would be great in a home where a lot of people wanted to use it.
It was not at all difficult to assemble, though there was some truth in the need for better diagrams. I was so delighted by the quality, the convenience of its foldable design, and its ease of use. I think you will be too.
