While shopping for a solution for my chronic lower back pain, I came across inversion tables. Doing all kinds of online research, I quickly learned how these tables can be a wonderful tool for ridding people of neck and back pain, stiffness, problems with their posture and more. However, like all things in the world, no two seemed alike.
Though I found a lot of similar products, it was when I found the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table that I knew I had discovered the perfect solution. While a lot of great tables exist, this one grabbed my attention because it had several features I had not even thought of until reading the product description, including a heat and vibration feature and the use of a pin system instead of tether straps.
These were not the only selling points, though, and the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table has a long list of impressive features.
About the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table
Isolated Heat and Vibration Therapeutic Massage Inversion With Adjustable Lumbar Pad
Yes, that is a mouthful, but it is certainly worth knowing about. The benefits of inversion are many, and even just a few minutes of gentle inversion can help your body overcome a host of issues. Now, add the healing benefits of heat and vibration to the mix and the benefits multiply.
As someone a bit over six feet in height, I was thrilled to see that this feature was available in an adjustable lumbar pad. Taller people may often run into situations where “standard” designed items don’t quite fit their longer bodies. A typical fixed lumbar position would be far too high, but because the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table has an adjustable pad, I was able to use it in just the right spot for me.
Five Position Side Inversion Pin
A lot of inversion tables use a simple and reliable tether strap system to stop the table and hold it in the right spot. While this is good, it doesn’t give the kind of control that the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table’s five position side inversion pin offers.
After all, most of us cannot hop onto an inversion table for the first time and go 180 degrees. This means we need a gentle introduction and then a slow transition, over time, to more intense inversion. Because of the pin system in the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Table, I was able to use varying degrees and know that the positioning would be consistent, stable and comfortable every time I used the table.

Customer Reviews and Scores
Being a “proof is in the pudding” sort of person, I went online to see what people at Amazon.com had to say about it. I was surprised to see it got a very consistent rating, garnering an average of 4.4 stars out of a possible five. Around 71% gave it a perfect score, 16% rated it four stars, and the tiny remaining numbers still had plenty of good to say about it.
For example, among the naysayers or the less than perfect reviews, some of the reasons for the lower rating were that the item arrived damaged or that “the heat is not that warm”. Understanding that such comments might be relative and that one man’s heat is another man’s air conditioning, I explored what the higher ratings indicated.
The positive comments confirmed my decision to pursue the matter. The basic, “really good unit” and the more exuberant “I should have bought this years ago” told me that the higher ratings for the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table were probably a bit more accurate and reflective of the table’s overall quality. With nearly 500 buyers giving it feedback, and most of them in the four to five-star majority, I realized it was probably a real winner.
Do I agree with those positive reviews? Certainly, I firmly feel that it met all of the descriptions and positive comments. It is sturdy, well made and exactly as the different product descriptions have explained it. I felt it exceeded my expectations in some areas too and would give it a high rating myself.
The Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table is different from a standard inversion table. Offering heat and vibration, custom controls and a more advanced cushion design, it is a great tool for comfortable and effective inversion. Unique in its use of energy foam and washable pads, it is a good table for those new to inversion therapy or those who have used inversion for a longer period of time.
Assembly is relatively easy, and you should be able to assemble it in about an hour. The heavy-duty steel tubing was impressive, and I had not realized the unit folds flat for easier storage.
I would highly recommend this table to anyone with back pain, posture problems, muscle aches, circulation issues and those who suffer from the stresses and strains of daily life … yes, anyone will enjoy it. While it is heavier than some tables, it gives you an added feeling of stability and security, further enhancing your sense of relaxation.
Whether you opt to buy the Innova ITM4800 Advanced Heat and Massage Therapeutic Inversion Therapy Table as a massage table or a therapeutic resource, you will not be disappointed.

*People who have a coronary illness, hypertension, eye problems (glaucoma, infection, etc.) or are pregnant are at high risk for problems identified with invasion therapy and should consult with their medical specialists first. Such individuals, with their physician’s approval, would need to advance gradually, beginning at light levels of therapy.
