Jackstand height is the height you stand on, with the average height being around 6 inches.
But there’s a growing list of companies that are experimenting with a range of heights, with researchers finding that some are able to increase their height by a factor of three.
“In our study, we saw a range from 2.5 to 6 inches, and it’s the same for some people,” said Dr Rebecca Bontrager, from the Australian Centre for Biomedical Engineering at RMIT University.
“It’s the height people stand on when they walk and it may not be the height they’re sitting at, but it’s still higher than what people typically stand at.”
Jackstands are a way to help increase height, but Dr Bonts says they don’t always work.
“If you have a high-profile product that you want people to be able to use it, they might be more likely to stand on it, but if they have a product that’s less common, or something that people might be less familiar with, it might not work.”
Jackstops are not just limited to high-fashion products.
Dr Bontrs study also looked at people who used the same height-increasing chemical that Jackstand uses to increase height.
“We found that people who were using the product to increase the height of their legs also increased their height on average,” she said.
“When we increased the height on our subjects by using a lower dose of a chemical that increases height, it didn’t increase the heights, it just increased their total height by about one and a half centimetres.”
There’s nothing surprising about that.
“Dr Bountrs team is looking at a range a variety of products to try and find the best ones.”
One of the key questions that we’re looking at is, what chemicals do they have that increase height?
And, is there a way that we can use that to increase our height, or increase our overall height?
“Dr Bourns said they are also looking at adding an adhesive to the underside of the product so that it can stick to the foot or the back of the chair, making the product more difficult to break.”
But there are a few products that I know of that do that, like the Jackstand that has a really good adhesive on the underside that will make it easier to break it,” she added.”
I think the trick is really, is that if you have the product in a way where it’s not easily broken, you can just use it like a safety net, and keep using it.
“Dr Bevan says she is currently looking at other products to increase Jackstand heights.”
So I think it’s really hard to go and pick one because you need to look at it, because it’s so variable,” she told ABC News Breakfast.”
And I think that if we have the technology, and the right materials, it would be really useful.
