In this paper some new Hardy-type inequalities on time scales are derived and proved using the concept of superquadratic functions. Also, we extend Hardy-type inequalities involving superquadratic functions with general kernels to the case with arbitrary time scales. Several consequences of our results are given and their connection with recent results in the literature are pointed out and discussed.
