The DEX II is a forward-rotating, user-controlled inversion machine. The body is placed in a 90/90 position, which helps to flatten the lumbar curve for greater separation of lower vertebrae. Traction is applied to the hip joints and spine, with no loads to the ankles and knee joints. The DEX II is ideal for back extension exercises; it works like a roman chair, but with better ergonomic support – and the unique traction handles offer a method for stretching and increased decompression.
Inversion Therapy has become popular as a way to relieve some of the back problems that are caused by decompression of the spine.
DEX II decompression & extension provides all of the benefits of inversion while holding the user in the 90/90 position, which is the optimum position for decompression. From this position, the user is in a body position relevant to gravity that maximizes muscle performance during back extensions while helping to prevent hyperextension.
A published preliminary pilot study compared two groups of sciatic pain patients scheduled for lower back surgery. All patients received physical therapy while one group also used a Teeter on a regular basis for 30 days. At the completion of the study, those who used the Teeter showed a 70.5% reduction in the need for surgery!
Newcastle Hospital researchers find Teeter Inversion to be "an effective, conservative treatment option with potentially significant healthcare cost savings."
