InBody sets up nationwide network of testing locations, launches new device

Biomedical tech specialist InBody USA is launching a network of body composition analysis testing sites across the US.

InBody has developed the network with partners across different industries – including fitness, medicine and nutrition – and plans to have a presence in every US state.

Each site will offer the InBody Test – an analysis of body composition aimed at giving members of the public a unique insight into their health.

The 45-second tests measure and track metrics such as muscle mass, fat mass, and water distribution.

The company is also introducing a new flagship device – the InBody 970.

Revealed at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the device features in-depth abdominal obesity analysis and medical-grade body water analysis. It is set to be released later this year.

"We are committed to helping people improve their health through education,'' says Harry Yun, CEO, InBody USA.

"We collaborated with our network of industry experts that use InBody devices to launch a locator map that will help people gain access to body composition testing and expert consultation that will help them reach their health goals."

Fitness partners which InBody is working with include franchised boutique brand Orangefitness.

All Orangetheory franchisees are being offered the opportunity to include InBody services at their studios

"Orangetheory Fitness boasts an impressive list of interactive workout technology for their members, and adding the InBody Test will complement the heart rate and performance data to give members a complete picture that they can take advantage of to achieve results," Yun added.
