We are InBody,

a worldwide leader

in body composition technology.

In the early 1990s, our founder and CEO, Dr. Kichul Cha, recognized 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.

Our Mission

To provide biomedical technology that simplifies the understanding of your health and wellness.

Christopher Kist, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

“We got very consistent results from the InBody and we could see consistent changes in our patients as they got older and stronger. We would see the decreases in weight and increases in lean body mass and we’ve been using it ever since.”
