“I was strongly inclined to get a system that could be used by non-adaptive needing drivers as well as myself and that there be no rods or impediments in the way for them. This was the only system I found that allowed for that.
I could not ask for a more simple and reliable system in my car. I also have great ease of mind knowing that if anything were to not work properly, it is just a phone call away from getting help. All has been in working order since May!” Christina W., AZ


“Very well made equipment!” Timothy L., PA


“It is difficult to say what Kempf can improve since every criteria is fulfilled. I come to love this product and couldn't imagine my car without it. It makes life so much easier for me.” Angelika W., CA


“We wanted a system that could be disabled so that the car could be driven without controls. Kempf was recommended and fits our needs perfectly!” Lisa W., AZ

“I met Martine at the NJ Abilities Expo several years ago. I was disappointed in the mechanical "home-made erector set" construction of other hand controls I had seen before Darios. When I saw Darios it was obviously high quality and superior technology.
The Darios installation is perfect and the device is easy to use. I love it and enjoy showing it to everyone. In fact, I have demonstrated the device to some of your prospective customers.” Bob P.

, NJ


“The extra switch for responsiveness seems superfluous, but we have no suggestions for improvement to the system overall. We love it.” Gary M., AZ

“If you have any type of upscale automobile, I highly recommend this system. Also, when it comes to effective braking and safety, this hand brake is much safer and the braking power is much stronger than a standard linkage. The adaptive equipment is hardly noticed by anyone who views my car, and there is no blockage from my body to the controls.
For three years I have not had any issues with the modifications. When I buy my next car I am going with Kempf to modify it.” Scoba R., CA


“Your hand controls are much easier to use and less tiring to use. Also, they take up less space.” Thomas B., AL

 

“The system installed in my 2011 Nissan Altima is absolutely exquisite! I took classes in the use of the bolt on the pedals rod system where you always must drive with only one hand on the wheel. Terrible. Also all that hardware reduces leg room and can detach itself unexpectedly. The Kempf system was my choice the first time I saw the video. Driving with the system is second nature to me after 3 years, perfect. When I take the car to the carwash, valet parking, or to the Dealer for service, I simply have to switch off the system and the car returns to normal operation for the temporary operator.
It could not be designed any better!” Ronald K., FL

“Kempf is a regular advertiser in a publication for disabled Veterans I receive on a regular basis. The print material is very attractive and immediately grabs your interest because the controls are attractive and very nicely designed.
Automobile hand controls have been clumsy and very disruptive to your vehicle's interior until the Kempf system became available. I've never had a vehicle that didn't suffer from the installation of controls by other manufacturers. Equipment that your knees collided with was just the beginning, air conditioning ducts that no longer worked, and equipment that required lubrication and adjustment were constant problems.
I have two vehicles adapted and we are very happy with the product. In a simple statement, it's the BEST hand control equipment I've used in 40+ years of driving. Be sure you consider all issues. The standard configuration and installation will do for 99.9% of us, but if you have special needs or desires, let them know and discuss your needs. Kempf adapts some very exotic vehicles, so if you have the budget they can meet your requirements.” Bill M., CA



“The product also looked elegant and I was impressed with the technology. Nothing else on the market really seemed to compare with the Kempf system. I love how quickly I was able to adapt to the system. i love driving again.
The installation is very professional and looks as though it was part of the car from the start. Thank you again to the whole staff at the Tampa installation center and to Martine. I love my Kempf system. You gave me back my independence.” Connie S., FL

“I wanted something that either me or my hubby could drive without having to get down on the auto floor to unscrew hardware.
Very happy camper! My ability to go somewhere is now restored. Feeling really cooped up before this. Independence once again!” Patricia W., GA


“A superb company with superior attention to detail.” Roger S., MD


“I've used an accelerator ring for many years. Always from Kempf. They are the best and the customer support is excellent!!! They truly back up their product.”  Denina M., GA

“To date I've put over 150,000 miles on the vehicle with Kempf controls. Most recently, during a holiday from work I was able to experience a 2,200 mile 7 day driving adventure from San Diego to the bottom of the Baja California peninsula and back! A year prior the same car rode a friend and I to the shores of the Beaufort Sea on Alaska's northern coast for a swim amongst icebergs.
Having the ease of ability for operation transition between hand controls and normal pedal operation has been wonderful. Partnered driving expeditions are allowed equal "behind the wheel time" as pursued thanks to the Kempf's product switch feature that allows this.
As a customer, I am totally satisfied with the product and service. Thank you Kempf!! Happy New Year : )” Mark Z., CA


“I couldn't say enough about the installation of the left side gas pedal in my new Avalon. The staff was great, the installation looked like it was factory installed, you would never never think it was aftermarket. Car was immaculate when I picked it up.” Mike G., FL


“This was our second left footed gas pedal. The first worked fine so we bought a second.
Works perfect the wife loves it. Curtis and his team are fine techs.
I can't imagine how you could improve. Everything was super.” Joel C., AL

 

"Our Camry with new pedal was delivered this morning.. beautiful job. The pedal button is even nicely integrated in the dash board! Delivery guys were very nice people.. My wife is so happy. Thank you." Charles P., FL


“The left gas pedal looks and functions like stock! It's very comfortable to use and much better than the other products on the market for driving with the left leg.
The Kempf technology allows me to stretch my right leg, which is more comfortable.
Very pleased - well worth the time and cost!” Jeffrey B., MA

The installation is really 1st rate.  It performs as well as it looks.  I have really enjoyed using the car with the system and it has exceeded my expectations. The brake handle installation works perfectly and you managed the installation issues perfectly too.  The solution to come from the bottom and place a bend in the handle looks and performs great as well. I couldn't be happier...
Again, I want to thank you for doing such a terrific job with the Ferrari California.

Vehicle: 2013 Porsche Panamera
Adaptation: DARIOS - Digital accelerator ring and main hand brake

I took delivery of my Porsche Saturday morning. All I can say, you guys do awesome work. Beautiful work. The controls are seamless. You cannot even tell if the hand-controls are OEM or not. It looks factory done. I’ve had people sit in my car and ask me, “How do you drive this? There aren’t any hand-control thingy’s here?” The throttle ring seems as if it belongs on the steering wheel. I’m also surprised my wheelchair doesn’t catch on the ring as I’m pulling in my wheelchair. Since I come from a quality assurance background in engineering, I check for discrepancies in workmanship. And looking at your installation, it was very hard find any which explains the cost. It’s well worth it. I’ve always driven with the ‘old school, push and pull’ type controls for the past 23 years and I actually like this (DARIOS system) much better. It was easy to adapt to. The learning curve is very short.

Vehicle: Toyota Sienna
Adaptation: DARIOS - Digital accelerator ring and main hand brake

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with my DARIOS System. I have not driven in almost two years; after the system was installed, I drove all the way home from Tampa, a distance of over 800 miles, with no problem at all. Everything worked perfectly, and I had no trouble with the driving. What an excellent technological advancement your system is.

I also wanted to tell you how impressed I was with Richard Jackson and his work. Not only was he kind enough to pick up the vehicle at the hotel on a holiday and return it there, as well, he did everything he said he would do on schedule and without complaint. I have an idea he put in some rather long days to turn the car around in such a short time. The installation is not just professionally done, but it is done so well that the system appears a part of the original equipment of the vehicle. What a find Richard is for you and your business.

Finally, if I may ever be of assistance to you or your business, please do not hesitate to let me know. In a time when workmanship is often shoddy, when craftsmen are unfortunately anything but, and keeping to a tight schedule is all but unheard of, you are setting a new standard with a fine product, an able and committed staff, and a handshake-is-your-bond operation. You have earned not only my respect but also my regard.

To you Ms. Kempf, and to Richard Jackson, as well, thank you for returning a significant portion of my freedom to me.

Sincerely,
John W. S., Ph.D. Pikeville, KY

“...the brake handle is a joy to use compared to the push rod system I was accustomed to."

The first time out driving my new 2011 Toyota Sienna convinced me that I had made the correct decision to install the Kempf ring instead of the typical rod and bar system that I have used in various configurations over the past fifty-nine years.

I found the Kempf ring very responsive, even forgiving of my tendency to use excessive pressure starting from a stop, and the brake handle is a joy to use compared to the push rod system I was accustomed to.

The learning curve was easier than I anticipated, and it made me wonder why I had not considered the steering ring earlier.

The new experience offered driving with both hands on the steering wheel with easy access to the brake lever instead of pushing forward that is typical of old style controls. Many periods of arm, hand, and shoulder stress associated with long hours of driving have made me a happy Kempf ring driver beyond my expectations.
One learns quickly to adapt to the ring accelerator with a sliding sleeve on the ring, unique to the Kempf installation.

"Driving with hand controls is outstanding, . . .

Vehicle: Volkwagen Phaeton
Adaptation: Digital accelerator ring and main hand brake

"After driving a large van for two years after my injury using 1950s push pull lever technology I felt there must be something better and was so pleased to find the Kempt digital and driving controls. 
As a result I purchased a high-performance automobile and now I can drive it with both hands on the wheel in full control. 
No more suicide knob and a push pull lever that frequently destroyed my breaks and gave me limited control of the vehicle. 
This new system gives me total control and great responsiveness, it's a real breakthrough!"

Last week I drove the car for the first time about 35 miles up to a dealership to get the body taken care of so it looks absolutely pristine.  Driving with a hand controls is outstanding, I can't wait to drive it using the paddle shifter's as it will really make it a true driving experience with the accelerator in sport mode. 
I really appreciate the attention to detail you took and you made this car an outstanding vehicle for handicapped individual that enjoys driving.  I certainly appreciate the attention to detail and a minor amount of cutting you did to install the unit. 
Thanks again for the great quality job.
Regards
Don G. from Chicago, IL

Vehicle: BMW 3-series
Adaptation: Electronic left foot accelerator pedal

“After a bicycling accident in 1999 left my right leg partially paralyzed due to a hip fracture, I have used left gas pedals to drive.  However, I was never able to get comfortable, as my hip has a limited range of motion and the mechanical gas pedal designs require a block over the regular accelerator pedal.  Therefore, with the mechanical designs, my leg was bent more than was comfortable and my lower back was forced to curve in order to compensate for the reduced hip flexibility.  Also, the system had to be removed each time someone else drove the car. 

With the Kempf design, I’m much more comfortable because I can stretch out my right leg.  The car drives as designed because the same gas pedal as is stock is used for the left pedal.  Even the switch on the dashboard to move between the right and left gas pedals is of high quality.  As an added bonus, since the system is simply a matching gas pedal installed to the left of the brake pedal, it looks very finished. 

Finally, Kempf did a wonderful job installing the product.  

Jeff B. from Boston, MA
