1. The softness/ pad thickness
2. The workable weight limit (Workable weight is important for HVLA treatments when you are applying more force than just the static body weight of the lying patient)The tables we are selling are the best at both of those areas. The ones I sell are a 2″ high density foam padding. The good true “OMT” tables have 1.5″ or 2″ padding, so our tables are in the same category. For weight limits, most good tables (including OMT specific ones have a workable weight limit (meaning moving weight, not just sitting still on the table) of 500 lbs. The tables I am selling are 500 lbs, and 2000 lbs static weight (meaning weight just sitting still on the table).So I use and sell these tables because they are the best in those parameters. Beyond these parameters, all the tables are about the pretty much the same in my opinion. Any portable table whether it is a $155 massage table or a $1000 “OMT” table is going to flex a little when you really jump on it. The engineering is going to have so many hinging parts that minor flex is not avoidable, but it has not been an issue for me.About 50 of my classmates are also using these tables and have all had great success as well. We are working on building a user feedback page so people can get more opinions on how these tables are working in the field.
When it comes down to it, these tables easily rival the $300-500 tables, so it is an even better table at $155.00 Is it going to last you until you retire from 30 years of daily OMM practice on it? Probably not, but it will take care of you for quite a while and make it possible to own one.
If you are in the area, you are welcome to come inspect and try one of our demo tables, become a believer yourself. If you are not in AZ, let me know where you are. I may have sold a table to classmate of yours that could show you theirs.
Thank you for considering us.
