Join the millions of professionals that trust InBody, the global leader in the body composition analysis industry

In the early 1990’s, Dr. Kichul Cha discovered that the results of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), a popular method of assessing body composition by measuring body fat in relation to lean body mass, were fundamentally inaccurate. He pointed out how different body parts have different levels of impedance and to accurately analyse body composition, the body needed to be analysed 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.

Body composition
Body composition analysis has long been used as an effective means to determining how healthy an individual’s body is, but only now is it becoming increasingly accessible to the mainstream health and fitness market.

Powered by an influx of research and expert opinion, today’s gym members are better educated, more aware and have an increasing demand for knowledge. Consequently, body composition analysis is fast becoming a popular measure and a real USP for gyms.

The InBody provides users with a detailed results sheet that helps customise clients’ training and nutrition programmes with clear targets, that also overcome the inaccuracies of traditional BIA methods.

World class technology
8-point Tactile Electrode System
This unique method of electrode placement controls contact resistance, an essential component when accurately measuring impedance in the body.

Multiple Frequencies
Electric currents have differing penetration abilities depending on their frequency. InBody uses multiple currents to account for this which, in turn, provide the most precise results.

Direct Segmental
Multi-Frequency BIA
Modern BIA views the human body as five ‘cylinders’: the arms, the legs and the trunk. InBody’s advanced technology allows all devices to directly measure all five cylinders, providing accurate reports not just for each cylinder, but for the entire body.

No Empirical Estimations
InBody avoids using empirical data, such as data related to age or gender, which often excludes individuals with atypical body types, such as performance athletes or the very overweight.

Together, all these technologies allow InBody devices to provide the easiest, quickest, and most precise BIA body composition analysis in the world.

Global network
Today, InBody operates in more than 60 countries throughout the health and fitness, sports and medical markets. The technology is supported by a team of experts who strive for increasing detail and accuracy in clinical and technology knowledge and are passionate about helping people around the world.

Following the global success of InBody, there are now direct operations in the UK, with three of its most popular devices:

InBody 270 - portable, foldable design perfect for fitness professionals on the go

InBody 570 - more measurement points to provide users with a detailed understanding of fluid distribution

InBody 770 - state-of-the-art device used by health professionals to support diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.

InBody is already in a rising number of UK gyms including Third Space, Bannatyne’s, Equinox and easyGym, as well as elite sport facilities. Its popularity also continues to grow in the medical market, with devices used at University College Hospital London and the Centre for Health and Human Performance.

The InBody has proven itself to be revolutionising the field of body composition analysers and continues to help people all around the world see what they’re made of.
