Message from CEOIn recent years, people have come to recognize that obesity causes a wide range ofhealth problems. Unfortunately, there are few ways for the smart detection of obesity.As the most effective and scientific way to identify obesity, body composition analysisat this time reminds us of the critical importance of novel technology.Over the past decades, technology has been developed analyzing body compositionbased on the difference in electrical conductive properties of various biological tissues.Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) has many advantages over other methods inthat it is safe, rapid and easy to perform, and requires little training for operators. Thus,this technology has become widely used in hospitals, health and fitness centers, andin field studies.Nevertheless, in detecting acute or chronic changes in body composition, the clinicalusefulness of conventional BIA has been limited to healthy average people. Due tolocalized fluid accumulation or loss and inability to assess the distribution of wateraccurately between intracellular water (ICW) and extracellular water (ECW), there hadbeen difficulties applying it to patients, the elderly, children and athletes. However,they are the very people who really need to know their body composition.Biospace has reinforced conventional BIA. These improvements were proved with lotsof clinical research papers. Because the body is not an isotropic conductor withuniform cross-sectional areas, we consider the body as five cylinders; four limbs andthe trunk. The amount of body water is measured segmentally. Multi-frequency Ki-Cul Cha Ph.Dtechnology makes it possible to measure ICW and ECW separately. Thus, there wouldbe no needs of empirical estimation to compensate inaccuracy, avoiding insensitive 1996 – CEO, Biospace Co., Ltd.measurement. 1992 – 1994 Post Doctor, Harvard Medical SchoolFDA approval of the apparatus and the method along with many other international 1986 – 1992 Ph D, Bioengineering, Utah Univ.

* 2. Segmental Measurement InBody Technology Increased accuracy by producing impedance for each different segment (4 limbs and the trunk). 1. Use of Multi-frequency Technology to Measure ICW and ECW separately Body Shape I DSM-Direct Segmenal Measurement Biospace’s patented technology makes the Body Shape II measurement absolutely accurate by checking impedance for each different segment: Comparison between trunk, arm, 4 limbs and trunk and leg impedance The segmental measurement is the technology that assumes the body as five cylinders - four limbs and a trunk- and measures impedance of these parts separately. Segmental At Low Frequency AT High Frequency body composition analysis provides segmental measurement of body water and fat free mass. Furthermore, the analysis is highly accurate because the measured value of a The problem with conventional BIA at a single low frequency is that it has to estimate certain part does not affect the measurement of other segments. It is because the the amount of intracellular water from extracellular because a low frequency cannot conventional body composition analyzers lack accuracy in measuring body fat and cannot pass through the plasma membrane and measure intracellular water. The bilayered figure out patient’s exact body shape. It needs empirical references to correct inaccurate cellular membrane divides the body cell into intracellular and extracellular water. The measured values. To ensure the accuracy of trunk impedance, it is necessary to develop intra-and extracellular waters are proportionate in a healthy body; however, an precise measurement technologies. The accurate measurement of the trunk provided by imbalanced body fluid distribution occurs in those who are elderly or suffer from the InBody heightens the accuracy of the body composition analysis. obesity, or geriatric diseases and they are the very people who need to analyze their body composition. Extracellular water is measured by low frequency currents (lower When body water is measured using a single impedance value, assuming the body to be a than 50 kHz), and intracellular water is measured by high frequency currents (higher single cylinder, there is a high chance of error. Body mass distribution and metabolic than 200 kHz). characteristics differ between legs and trunk and cannot be identified using a single frequency, yielding a higher error rate. InBody separates the body into 5 different cylinders Contemporary BIA equipment acknowledges this standard 3:2 ratio of intra- to with respect to the arms, legs and trunk, and calculates the impedance of each. extracellular water, and assumes that everybody fits this standard. But it is important to know the exact values of intra- and extracellular water because not everybody falls Even if body composition analyzers can measure our body segmentally, the same into this normal range. This empirical estimation used in other BIA equipment inhibits measurement accuracy cannot be recorded by all analyzers. Human subjects can be the accuracy of the results because it gives generalizable water values, which might considered to be made up of five tubes: two legs, two arms, and one trunk. There are many alter all of the other tested components’ values. BIA technology is based on the factors that can affect impedance in a human subject. While the trunk makes up the conductivity of tissue and its resistance. By only measuring partial body water instead biggest part of the body, its impedance index is the lowest, at about 20 ~ 25 ohms, due to of total body water, the results are only partially credible. the fact that it has the largest width of all body parts. In the case of arms, which usually have an impedance of about 300 ohms, 2-3 ohms can be considered a small error. The InBody is a unique device, and one of the only bioelectrical impedance analyzers However in the case of the trunk, the same 2-3 ohms can be considered a significant error on the market measuring total body water. Multiple frequencies also provide capable of affecting the results of the test on the trunk, it is necessary to develop precise numerous impedance values, opposed to only one. The use of multiple currents measurement technologies. As such, the accurate measurement of the trunk provided by ensures the accuracy of the impedance readings; the most important thing when the InBody can contribute to heighten the accuracy of the body composition analysis. using BIA technology.
3. 8-Point Tactile Electrodes 4. No Statistical Estimations on body composition analysisEnhanced accuracy and reproducibility through fixing the measuring locations of There is no need to use empirical estimations; gender and age do not affect the result.current and voltage. With Conventional BIA, results are distorted by statistics, based on personal data such as age, sex, body type, etc. Conventional BIA devices only partially measure body composition and the rest is statistically determined. Although it gives reasonable results for people of the norm, its accuracy is very low for children, elderly, patients, and athletes. However, InBody’s DSMF-BIA technology has overcome the limitations of the conventional BIA method. It accurately assesses intracellular water using multiple frequencies and measures bioimpedance of the trunk as well as the rest of the body. InBody uses actual measurements to yield accurate results regardless of empirical estimations. Examples below show some empirical estimations that are used in conventional BIA devices. 8-Point Tactile Electrode Our tetrapolar 8-point tactile electrodes technology has made it possible to enhance accuracy and reproducibility by fixing the measuring points of current and voltage.The use of 8 tactile electrodes instead of the standard 4 gives the InBody theability to measure the body segmentally instead of assuming that the body is asingle cylinder. The InBody uses overlapping currents to isolate specific body partsand assess their LBM (lean body mass) independently of the others. Otheranalyzers measure only one portion of the body and translate the results to ageneralizable value for the entire body.The use of fewer electrodes results in less accuracy and the need for externalvariables to aid in the analysis. As you can see, the current does not travel through Sample example 1 Sample example 2the entire body with other conventional BIA methods, and therefore lack accuracy Other BIA body composition analyzers use empirical estimations to account for the error inin their testing methods. The use of fewer electrodes creates less accurate and analysis. This individual only changed the gender input, and got entirely different results although their body’s composition remained the samereproducible results. These machines are more sensitive to water variation in the Why do other analyzers use empirical estimation?body, and rely more on empirical data. Empirical estimation refers to the application of variables estimated from the personal information input, such as gender, age and body type as in athletes or average people. ForThese 8 electrodes are a key component in the process of receiving accurate, example, when body composition analysis of a female examinee is conducted, her Body Fatreproducible results. The electrodes are strategically placed so the currents that Mass can be estimated based on the empirical fact that women usually have more Body Fatare emitted have the same starting and ending points every time an individual is Mass than men. Thus, empirical estimation, in order to revise inaccurate estimations, refers totested. Manually placed electrodes are subject to human error and may not have those variables that may affect the result of body composition analysis. If the subject does notthe same points of entrance every time. Reproducibility is necessary in order to belong to an average group, then empirical estimation produces error. A machine usinggive an accurate body composition assessment, and Biospace’s patented 8-point empirical estimations cannot reflect the exact compositional changes of the patients ortactile electrodes remove any concern of error associated with current lengths and differentiate between body compositions of different groups for research purposes.impedance values. Validation has proved the use of tetra-polar electrodes to bethe most effective way to measure body composition analysis using BIA Conventional body composition analyzers need empirical data to overcome poor accuracyequipment. and reproducibility. This brings about insensitive measurement and there is difficulty detecting changes of body composition. Concerning clinical use of the body composition analyzer,1The use of 2 electrodes on each hand and foot guarantees the same point of sensitivity is one of the most important issues. The data is obtained by estimation rather thanentry and exit every time a subject is tested. With manually applied electrodes it is actual measurement. Empirical estimation will produce errors for any individuals with bodydifficult to place them exactly in the same position every time. With the embedded shapes other than the standard ones. Because of this, conventional body compositionelectrodes the currents start at the fingers or toes respectively and meet at the analyzers have considerable error rates in those individuals with extreme obesity or illness,same point every time. This guarantees the same current lengths time after time. children and elderly people.This feature is unique to Biospace’s technology.

Testimonial “We purchased a Biospace InBody machine for our weight control center in August of 2005. I must say that the response has been outstanding.It allows us to determine protein needs by making sure that our patients are losing fat and not muscle. We also measure intra- and extracellular fluid. This has been a tremendous tool for us to help patients better understand their weight program and comply with the protocol.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Diane Kallmann, RN, Administrator Medifast Medical Center Sacramento, CA Phillip O. Warner, M.D. New Dimensions Medical Group Marysville, CA “The InBody has been an incredible asset to our practice. The information provided by the machine is both very accurate and helpful to patients. We have had several patients who had underwater weighing prior to using our InBody and the results were almost identical. In addition, the InBody s impedance index allows a patient to fine tune their work-out to create better body proportion. The Biospace unit is simple to use, takes very little time, and yet provides a very impressive report. The machine has worked flawlessly since we purchased it. In addition, the support staff has been very helpful in answering questions and educating us on interpreting results. We previously used a handheld device but found the results to be very inaccurate, non-reproducible and provided only BMI and percent body fat.” ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jeffrey I.
