Teeter was founded in 1981 by Roger Teeter and his wife Jennifer, who have invested much of their lives educating people around the world about the benefits of inversion therapy.Roger first heard about inversion at a water ski tournament. At the time, he was suffering from severe back problems resulting from an auto accident and the toll of water skiing professionally. On worst mornings, Roger would have to crawl to the bathroom to run hot water over his back so that he could function throughout the day. He also wore a large brace with metal rods to support his back every time he skied for 5 years! Roger finally discovered that by inverting, he was able to relieve his back pain and begin the road to recovery.
Roger benefited so much from inversion therapy that he decided to start a company dedicated to manufacturing high quality inversion products. Sky’s the Limit (STL) entered the inversion market in 1981 with Hang Ups brand gravity boots and inversion tables, now widely known as Teeter. For over 35 years, Teeter has been widely recognized as the leader, innovator and quality pioneer within the inversion equipment market.
Roger Teeter is a graduate engineer of the University of Wisconsin. He has over 50 years of experience in the development of fitness and sports equipment. In addition to inversion products, he has led the company in over 200 projects to develop new products for other companies including many medical and dental items. Roger was recently recognized by the American Water Ski Education Foundation for his pioneering design contributions.
