Headrest Emergency Deployment Rig (HEDR)
"Mountains are not fair or unfair, they are just dangerous." -Reinhold Messner
"Danger is my middle name." -Austin Powers
We won't miss out on life's adventures just because it's riskier than staying at home. That's why we equip our own vehicles with a kit that can handle whatever dangers we encounter. We road-tested the HEDR in the mountains of our Colorado headquarters and decided it was time for an upgrade. A new retention strap fastens the kit even more securely to your vehicle's headrest, so that you can go off the beaten path and ignore the bumps in the road. More straps are inside the kit, securing the individual components inside, so that if an emergency interrupts your day, precious seconds will be saved accessing them. Enjoy your day, and be safe, with a kit that will help you do it- our new and improved HEDR.
The HEDR gives you a low-profile, comprehensive trauma kit that’s ready to go with a pull of the red grab handle. One panel securely attaches to your automobile’s headrest and the pouch attaches with velcro to the panel.

Perfect size and secures nicely to the back of the head rest! Great product
Product is great. Fits perfect in my smaller car.
The HEDR is unobtrusive in my Tacoma and allows me to be prepared in times of need. I hope I never put the contents of this complete kit to use, but I am ready to respond if need be.
First off I just want to say fantastic company and the product is a high quality and fantastic Only one thing I’d i think would be a great option is to have the ability to pick what color strap that goes around the headrest regardless of what color kit you get But all in all would buy again and will continue to buy more products and will tell others as well
Great kit! Bought one each for my daughters and me. Like the two tourniquet option and recommend it. Enough room to add more chest seals, hemostatic gauze and a SWAT-T tourniquet. Great product!
Well thought out, and good quality. Great for a dedicated vehicle trauma kit. I like the extra long velcro strip that fits even my vehicles large headrests.
I wanted a trauma kit that I could access easily from the driver’s seat. The HEDR is well equipped, easily deployable, and high quality. I feel better having this in my car in case of a major medical emergency.
I hope I never need to use this, but I am so glad I have it. So much better than my old bailout bag, never knowing exactly where it had rolled to if I needed it. This rides on the back of the passenger headrest and is so easy to get to with one hand while opening the door with the other. Dark Angle Medical, you guys rock, seriously.
I have limited first aid background but I was impressed with the kit and I really liked how I was able to easily affix it to the head rest of my truck making very handy and yet out of the way.
Pocket Doc never fails to impress. Having a readily accessible kit in your vehicle is a huge deal, and this kit delivers the essentials in a no nonsense, easy to use package. I highly recommend this for EVERYONE.
Installs easily on the headrest and simple to grab when needed. The kit has everything that I need for an emergency situation. The only thing missing in installation instructions, it requires looking at the pictures on the website and some trial and error.
This is my third kit from DAM. They have great quality kits and this one didnt disappoint. Just put this kit on the headrest on the passenger seat and looks good. The head rap stays secure while the kit pulls off easily. I hope I never have to actually use it though.
