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. In 2015, InBody launched their first consumer product, the InBody Band. Soon after, InBody released a stadiometer height measuring device along with a smart weight analyzer. 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.

Who Is InBody?

Dr. A.K. Misra, M.D. , FACP, CAQSM, QME, VSAF, AUX-CAP“In my professional line of work, I have utilized the InBody technology because I not only trust the dependability of the result, I know the importance tracking changes in body composition is for personal health and wellness advancement.”
