About InBody

Suntem InBody,

liderul mondial

în tehnologia compoziției corporale.

In the early 1990s, founder and CEO, Dr. Kichul Cha, recognised that the available BIA devices were limited and faulty. They were often inaccurate, and from a medical standpoint, useless for treating patients who needed body composition analysis the most. Drawing from his background in mechanical engineering, he set to work to design something better.

In 1996, he founded InBody. Two years later, the first InBody device was born. Today, InBody has grown from a small biotech startup in South Korea to a multinational corporation with branches and distributors in more than 80 countries. Our clients trust us to provide precise, useful, and accurate body composition data to their users because they know that InBody combines convenience, accuracy, and reproducibility into one easy-to-use device.

Mission

“InBody is dedicated to inspiring and leading people to live a healthier life.“

 

Vision

“It is InBody’s vision that one day health will not only be measured by knowing your weight but by having an accurate insight in your body composition.”

Company Values

Education

Focusing on weight loss alone is not enough. We're moving the conversation away from BMI and weight loss and teaching the public on the importance of fat loss and muscle gain.

Motivation

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.

Application

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.

Innovation

We continuously push ourselves to be better than yesterday to create a better world for today and the generations to come. We're looking to the future with every new product that is produced.
