‘Inversion Table’ Killed Husband, Widow Says

ALBANY, GA. (CN) - A man using STL International's "inversion table" or "Teeter Hang Up" as directed, for back pain, broke his neck and became quadriplegic when it flipped as it held him in ankle clamps. He died as a result, his widow claims claims in Federal Court.

Linda Mobley says she and her husband bought the table through the Home Shopping Network. She says STL advertises and sells the item "to reduce back pain, improve circulation, increase oxygen flow to the brain, reduce the effect of aging and relieve stress."

She demands punitive damages for negligence, product liability, breach of warranty and pain and suffering.
