Farabloc, an electromagnetic
shielding fabric, contains extremely fine stainless steel fibres and nylon, with
an appearance similar to linen.
This drug-free product has a significant shielding effect on high frequency
electromagnetic fields (EMF) while permitting low frequency EMF through which
stabilize the cell by polarization. Farabloc has been extensively researched and
is successfully used by many people in dealing with conditions causing chronic
pain, such as phantom limb pain, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports
related muscle soreness, menstrual pain, fibromyalgia and reflex sympathetic
Karl Kempe, a native of Erlangen, Bavaria grew up in a house of pain. His
father, Rudolf Kempe, a successful businessman, suffered excruciating phantom
limb pain. He had lost a leg in 1944 in the legendary World War II battle of
Monte Cassino. His son Frieder, an engineering and science student, became
intrigued by the Faraday Cage, the 19th century work of British scientist
He had noted that his father's pain often
seemed to be weather related - "Whenever the pain came, my father would predict
rain. I realized that his scar had no healthy skin covering, hence no protection
from electromagnetic fields."
Frieder wondered if a
"second skin" - the principle of a
- might shield sensitive tissue, calm damaged nerve ends and stimulate blood
This began what has become a 30-year personal
odyssey. After studying engineering, Kempe began work on a prototype covering,
which he tested on his father. By 1978, he'd developed a thin fabric cloth with
interwoven metal fibres that significantly reduced his father's pain. He named
the product Farabloc.
Kempe is a businessman active in both his native Bavaria and in Canada, with
investments including real estate, agriculture, gravel pits, major motorway
service centres and health products. Mr. Kempe and his wife Irene first visited
Canada in 1978. They became permanent residents and landed immigrants in 1985.
All four of their children, aged 16-20, fluent in both German and English, are
Canadian citizens, born and educated in Canada. The family resides in Coquitlam,
B.C., a Vancouver suburb.
Mr. Kempe's father was a visionary German
businessman who, in the aftermath of World War II, anticipated the
reconstruction and expansion of Germany's Autostrada and the need of major oil
companies to secure firm title to service station locations. He assisted in
assembling these properties and also acquired gravel pits to supply the
construction. Frieder, beginning in his teen-years and after leaving university,
worked in and subsequently became instrumental in building the family business.
