Inversion Tables are designed to help improve posture, reducing back and joint pain.  They work by securing a person in an inverted position (up to 180 degrees) which naturally stretches the body, helping to relieve pressure on the spine and joints as well as stimulating the circulation.  Take a look at the following Inversion Tables:
