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 Eight-Point Tactile Electrode Method, which can precisely measure individual body compositions.
Focusing on weight loss alone is not enough. We're taking the narrative ahead of BMI and weight loss and teaching people the importance of fat loss and muscle gain.
Making healthy choices is hard enough as it is. We seek to help businesses motivate their own clients on how to transform their lifestyle to create healthier and happier people.
The InBody Result Sheet has been specifically designed to give you outputs you need to see which diets and exercises are clearly working for you. Our cutting-edge technology takes the guesswork out.
We continuously push ourselves to be better than yesterday, to create a better world for today and the generations to come. We look to the future with every new product that we produce.
