Stretching machines are mere modern devices sold to those who desire to no longer practice normal stretch routines without. I have performed stretching before machines/ devices were marketed and have used such devices in the past. I have come to a near conclusion that stretching maybe a tad overated in the sense of necessity. Especially in anything within the scope of a normal life

Sounds interesting. But I don't think that would be necessary.

I think a mixture of machines and non machine stretches are the best, but if you a getting the result you desire from one or the other, so be it!!!!

I've read a few articles about that. I think it's rubbish saying you don't have to stretch before a workout. Every time I've tried it I've ended up with a really bad backache afterwards and pain in my hips to boot. I actually know many instructors who don't stretch as part of the warm up. Many people seem OK with it but I haven't seen any of these instructors produce any students with any impressive amount of flexibility. I've found that stretching too much before working out can make the legs in particular feel uncoordinated and sluggish but a certain amount of stretching is very beneficial to the workout.

Statistically analysis beats personal opinion.

Warm ups are to warm up, mobility is for before training, stretching is for after training.

Stretching is very important but it can be dangerous if you use the wrong position

i've heard about this machine but i think calcium density would be affected. You may get higher but weaker bones.

I think we don't need use any machine like that if you want to increase 3-5 cm in height. I've tried some body exercise and that works.
