ROGER TEETER, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF TEETER HANG UPS

Roger is an engineer now in his 70's. In his forties he suffered from serious back pain when he was a water-ski designer and competitor. The pain became so severe that he was forced to wear a steel-reinforced brace while skiing. A friend introduced him to inversion, and for the first time he was pain-free. He was impressed that his symptoms were not just being masked - the source of the pain was being addressed.

He realized that inversion could help many people if there was an easy way to do it in the comfort of their homes, and has devoted his life to making that possible.

As an engineer, Roger was exposed to the problem of metal fatigue in aircraft, and he applied what he learned to the manufacture of Teeter products.

In an interview, he said: "My work experience related to aircraft has definitely been a help to the design of inversion tables, since the biggest design challenge to keeping planes in the air is eliminating metal fatigue... Designing fatigue out of a given structural application ... requires special steels, like heat-treated steel.

My aircraft experience was a big help in designing Teeter inversion tables to be fatigue-resistant. Currently Teeter is the only brand that meets the new UL specification, UL1647, which tests inversion tables in real-world use... Do not even think about hanging on an inversion table that does not meet the new UL standard."
