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.

    Holy sh (cow) I needed one of these years ago

    Posted by Eric Page on Sep 30th 2021

    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.

    Well made

    Posted by Dan on Sep 22nd 2021

    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.

    Outstanding as always

    Posted by Tommy on Sep 7th 2021

    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.

    Excellent car trauma kit

    Posted by Alain on Sep 3rd 2021

    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.

    It rides shotgun with me.

    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.

    Great Med kit/ Great placement option

    Posted by BG on Sep 13th 2020

    Great Med kit with room for a few additions. I doubled the supplies, in mine. Great placement. Anyone in a 4 door truck can reach it.

    HEDR is a Hit

    Posted by Robert M. Miller on May 22nd 2020

    HEDR is an outstanding trauma kit for your car that contains what you might need for a serious accident. I added a second tourniquet, decompression needle. The kit is pretty full as it comes, so not a lot of room for add ons. I put a headlamp in the elastic front pouch, hung a roll of surgical tape by the sheers, and added separate sets of gloves as the first thing i see when it opens. Im gonna add a surgical mask when i can get one. I think the front elastic pouch could be better as an enclosed compartment with a zipper. Overall i wish it were about 20% to 33% bigger with some room to add things like more alcohol prep pads, water based lube gel for the NPA, antiseptic pads, peroxide, saline wash, another eye shield, etc. While the kit is designed just to bridge the first 20 minutes until EMT arrives, situations could take longer. Of course you could always attach an auxiliary pouch for this. Overall this is a great kit that is more modern than the one i built myself for the same purpose. Highly recommend.

    Perfect Add

    Posted by John La Voie on Jan 15th 2020

    This kit is the perfect add to my truck. I have a larger kit with extra items as well - but this is perfect for what it is designed for - RAPID, FIRST RESPONSE. If I need more than the kit carries, I have it, but the First Response is key. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    This is my third kit from Dark Angel. This one is specifically for the wife's car. I keep a D.A.R.K. in my pick up that can go with me on my belt or into the work truck. I also have the ankle kit that is always in arms reach. But this one will stay put in the wife's car. Now I just need to get her to the class!

    I live in Alaska and spend significant time traveling the highways. The Dark Angel HEDR is a well built, and adequately configured trauma kit. The kit is easily removeable from the headrest for deployment. Being readily removable also mitigates some of the temptation for scum to break windows and steal it while away from the vehicle--just pull it when away and stow in the console. Well done Dark Angel! I can and do recommend the unit for vehicle based emergency response.
