We are InBody, a worldwide leader in body composition technology. In 1996, Dr. Kichul Cha 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.
As a global enterprise, InBody is located in over 80 countries around the world. Over 70% of the total revenue is generated from exports. Aside from the headquarters office, InBody Co., LTD, located in South Korea, subsidiaries are located in USA, China, Japan, India, EU and Malaysia. InBody takes pride in keeping a close and healthy relationship with its agents worldwide.
Founder speaks My interest in BIA took root very early in my life. I would pick up ideas and experiment. In time, this led me to areas of research that had never been perceived earlier. In pursuit of this combined, or rather conjoined research in engineering and medical streams, I reached a point where I just had to make this machine. I was living with this constant realization that this could improve the quality of lives. This business, therefore, is a natural extension of the pursuit of my interest in BIA.
With my interest of BIA, I started researching into it. While putting ideasand experimenting with ideas that others have not even thought of, I had tomake a machine with my background in both engineering and medical. Then, I realized how this machine will improve the quality of lives, and the business started naturally. In other words, InBody is the result of efforts which was obtained by a pursuit of my own interest in “BIA.”
This is a Result Sheet generated by an InBody 770 Body Composition Analysis machine.
The Result sheet components remain the same across all other InBody machines.
Body Composition Analysis displays the weight of Total Body Water (Intracellular water (ICW) and extracellular water (ECW)), dry lean mass, and body fat mass. Body weight is the total of these three components.
Muscle-Fat Analysis uses bar graphs to provide a comparison between weight, skeletal muscle mass, and body fat mass. The lengths of the bar graphs indicate the relationship between the current weight to the average value for that specific segment, based on the examinee’s height.
Obesity Analysisdisplays both BMI and percent body fat. PBF is a more accurate determination of your health because it compares your fat levels to your weight. Although outdated, BMI is included on the InBody result sheets because it is commonly used in scientific research.
Segmental Lean Analysis graph is effective and informed assessment of lean mass distribution within the five segments of a user’s body. This helps professionals closely monitor changes and make adjustments as necessary.
ECW Ratio Analysisis displays both BMI and percent body fat. PBF is a more accurate determination of your health because it compares your fat levels to your weight. Although outdated, BMI is included on the InBody result sheets because it is commonly used in scientific research.
Body Composition HistoryAfter an InBody Test is taken, results are saved onto the device and can be recalled if an ID is entered at the beginning of the test. The cumulative graph quickly shows changes in the examinee’s body composition and allows for dietary-exercise modifications.
Inbody ScoreThis score shows the evaluation of your body composition, which includes muscle, fat, and water in the body.
Visceral Fat AreaVisceral fat is the fat surrounding your organs. InBody recommends people maintain a Visceral Fat Level under 10 or a Visceral Fat Area under 100 square centimeters. Higher amounts of visceral fat are associated with the development of diseases like diabetes, stroke and dementia.
Weight ControlSee how your body measures up to the recommended Weight, Muscle Mass, and Body Fat Mass for a good balance. The '+' means to gain and the '-' means to lose.
Segmental Fat Analysis Segmental Fat Analysis is a derivative of the Segmental Lean Analysis and is presented in a similar manner. This portion of the result sheet provides the weight of fat in each segment and the percent above or below sufficiency.
Research Parameter is an indicator of cellular integrity and intracellular water. InBody devices provide whole body phase angle and segmental phase angle at 50 kHz. Higher phase angles indicate greater cellular integrity and/or fluids inside the cells.
Phase angleInBody provides segmental impedance values at varying frequencies to obtain an accurate analysis of the body.
Impedance InBody provides segmental impedance values at varying frequencies to obtain an accurate analysis of the body.
“Every 3 months, we observe patients whether they are losing muscle mass or fat percentage then we modify the diet plan accordingly. when they lose muscle mass, BMR and metabolic may get changed. Then they have more risk regaining the weight. BCA is the most important bariatric practice. “
I want to say it is the best equipment and in terms of trying to determine a player’s physiological make-up, it doesn’t get any better than the InBody. It’s been a great asset to our strength and conditioning programs.
