Body-Composition Analyzer (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis; BIA)[INQ. NO. 2006E10] InBody Co. Ltd. (“InBody”) is a global healthcare company and is internationally recognized as creator of the standard machine for body-composition analysis. Over the years, InBody has consistently grown at over 20% each year, and as a result, InBody is now widely used in hospitals and fitness centers.
Headquartered in South Korea, InBody has seven wholly owned subsidiaries across the globe — the USA, Japan, Netherlands, China, Malaysia, India, and Mexico. Every day, millions of people across 100 countries use InBody’s products and services for a better quality of life.
InBody uses a combination of low and high frequencies to determine extracellular, intracellular, and total body water. The use of multiple frequencies allows InBody devices to achieve a high level of precision.
Using the structural features of the human body, InBody created ‘Eight-point tactile electrodes with thumb electrode.’ This allowed InBody to consistently start the measurement at the same location to provide reproducible results.
Direct Segmental Measurement-BIA (DSM-BIA) regards the human body as composed of five cylinders: left arm, right arm, trunk, left leg, and right leg. InBody independently measures each cylinder separately to provide accurate measurements for the entire body.
InBody measures body composition without relying on empirical assumptions such as age, and gender to produce accurate and precise results that are validated using gold standard methods.

New standard for high-end InBody
The InBody 970 has further developed BIA body composition by using patented technology to analyze abdominal fat and total body water. The amount and type of abdominal fat that an individual carries is a key health indicator that is difficult to measure. The InBody 970 aims to provide quick and accurate assessments for all individuals; paired with the Yscope, the InBody 970 gives an in-depth abdominal fat analysis within 90 seconds.
By measuring each body segment at 3MHz, the InBody 970 can provides pages of in-depth analysis of extracellular and intracellular water. This depth of body water analysis can be used to identify undiagnosed chronic conditions, target inflammation, and tailor treatments. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods
