InBody is the global leader in the body composition analysis industry with world class technological advancements.
In early 1990’s during his post-doctoral position at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kichul Cha, discovered that the results of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) were fundamentally inaccurate. He pointed out how different body parts have different levels of impedance; to accurately analyze body composition, the body would need to be analyzed by segments instead of as a whole. Dr. Cha developed the methods that would overcome the limitations of BIA and transform how BIA would be measured. With this, he created the InBody.
In 1996, Dr. Cha founded InBody Co., Ltd. in Seoul, Korea to produce and promote the InBody and its revolutionary methods. The InBody features Direct Segmental Multi-Frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis and uses an 8-Point Tactile Electrode with Patent Thumb Electrode, which can precisely measure individual body compositions.
In 2000, InBody Co., Ltd. established its first overseas subsidiary in the United States, InBody, Inc. The InBody and its technology are FDA approved and its results have been validated by research. InBody has also established subsidiaries in Japan and China. InBody has a global network of partners in over 60 countries across North America, Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
Today, InBody continues to spread the importance of knowing your body composition as opposed to simply monitoring your weight. The information from the InBody test allows for personalized exercise and diet programs to maintain healthy lifestyles. The InBody is widely used in various research and professional fields. InBody continues to build on its current strength and stability in the global body composition analysis market. The InBody has proven itself to be revolutionizing the field of body composition analyzers and continues to help people all around the world see what they’re made of.
