How does Kempf adapt a car?

A behind the scene look at how Kempf designs the digital accelerator ring Darios and the main hand brake for drivers who cannot use their legs.

For a few years now the use of a handheld 3D laser scanner has made the design of the accelerator ring and handbrake an easier process than in the past.

This  Bentley Continental GT is adapted for a driver who cannot use his legs.

The digital accelerato ring Darios and the main right hand brake are well integrated in the car's interior.

The sliding sleeve of the ring gives the driver great comfort and a pleasure of driving.


This Audi A4 is adapted with a digital accelerator ring DARIOS 211 which is designed for flat bottom steering wheels. It has a flat bottom and its sleeve slides over its holder to enable precise accelerations when exiting a turn.

The right hand brake is positioned close to the steering wheel and is easily reached whithout having to keep a hand on it at all time.
This solution is well liked by many drivers who cannot use their legs.



The digital accelerator ring DARIOS 211 installed in this Seat Ateca is designed for flat bottom steering wheels. It has a flat bottom and its sleeve slides over its holder to enable precise accelerations when exiting a turn.

The right hand brake is positioned close to the steering wheel and easily reached at all time.


This Tesla Model 3 is adapted with the digital accelerator ring DARIOS and the main hand brake for a driver who cannot use his legs.


The stabilized steering knob PICADO allows a driver who uses only one hand, to controls the secondary functions without taking his or her hand off the wheel.

Thanks to its stabilizing force, it doesn’t constantly solicit the hand muscles, so driving with one hand is less tiring.


The pleasure of driving - for over 60 years Kempf has been designing and manufacturing accelerator rings and main hand brakes with strict precision, safety and reliability guidelines.
