Frieder Kempe is a German scientist who designed a special metallic fabric called Farabloc that shields the human body from immediate shifts in the Earth's electromagnetic field. Published studies ( PMID 10695845, PMID 17216399 and PMID 11882771 ) show Farabloc relieves pain. This is based upon the concepts found in the Faraday cage which protects sensitive MRI machines from these shifts.
Frieder Karl Kempe, a native of Erlangen, Bavaria grew up in a house of pain. His father, Rudolf Kempe, a successful businessman, suffered excruciating phantom pain. He had lost a leg in 1916 in the legendary World War I battle of Somme. His son Frieder, an engineering and science student, became intrigued by the Faraday Cage, the 19th-century work of British scientist Michael Faraday.
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 Faraday Cage - might shield sensitive tissue, calm damaged nerve ends and stimulate blood circulation.
