Me: This may be one device which might actually help increase one’s height a little, at least temporarily, and only for people who already are losing height from spinal and vertebral curvature. When I was first getting started on the website, I remembered that on Ebay and Amazon there were quite a few Traction machines for sale and I was supposed to review the products but I realized it would not be possible to review the machines if I hadn’t tried them out myself. Since I am not in a stable location right now, I can’t buy the big machine so I couldn’t review the traction machines.
For the longest time, many people has claimed that the traction machine can increase people’s height. In terms of common sense physics principles, that seems reasonable. You are lying horizontally like you are sleeping. The force of gravity is thus not compressing down on your vertebrae so your disks decompress a little. The traction machine holds your head or neck steady on one side and then holds your feet and ankles clamped on the other side. With a lever , you slowly increase the distance between your head and neck with your feet and ankle.
The infomercial is really, REALLY cheesy and they claim that people in advanged age can gain 5-7 cm extra height and that adolescents can gain 7- 15 cms. That claim is just ridiculous since that means a height increase of up to 6 inches. As for medical treatment, the claim is that the traction machine can also decrease the symptoms of deformed spinal disks such as soreness, aches, bone spurs, and insomnia. The testimonials and actors are just horrible since they get a group of foreign people all saying how much they like the device in different languages. It is supposed to be able to stretch all 37 (or 27) joints in the spine (I think). Apparently this device is approved by some Chinese Organization with a Certificate that few people other than the Chinese can read. They really are trying to sell you on this device and it costs about $2000-3000 USD.
