I picked up the Lazarus Deployable Headrest System for my Tacoma. My current trauma kit was located in my drivers side door and in my daily computer bag that is always with me when in the truck. I was looking for something that would be accessible to anyone in the vehicle during any type of emergency or accident. This system definitely seems to fit that bill. Me and my 9 year old son did several drills today and we were both able to access and deploy all the needed training aids from every seat in the double cab and from any of the open windows. While trying to reach the kit from the outside of the drivers side front and back windows was a stretch it was doable. Being able to set the tension of the mounting system to the Headrest and the bag in the mounting system baring lossing the whole seat or headrest in an accident I feel this mounting solution will stay put.
The Lazarus Deployable Headrest System is a simple, yet effective solution for storing easy-to-access to medical equipment in one convenient package.
The Lazarus Deployable Headrest System mounts to the any headrest in your vehicle and can be deployed by either the passenger or driver quickly and safely. The pouch deploys from either side, making it a great option for use in police cruisers, where there is often a protective shield that divides the rear compartment from the front of the vehicle. It also makes it easy for any passenger to deploy the kit from either seat.
Americans spend a substantial amount of time commuting in their vehicles. Consequently, car accidents are a leading cause of both injury and death in America. We are much more likely to experience a situation requiring medical response than any other emergency scenario we train and equip for, highlighting the need for ready-access medical equipment. Police offices and first responders spend almost all of their working hours patrolling in their squad cars and responding to traumatic events. It only makes sense to keep medical equipment in your vehicle easily accessible and easily identifiable if you are providing immediate care and directing a bystander to retrieve your medical supplies.
The pouch fully opens, allowing you to fully access to your contents. It also lays flat, creating an easy work space while retrieving parts from the kit. The pouch is Velcro lined and accepts the entire line of our Pouch Insert Suite for better organization of contents.
This kit comes as a two piece system: the Pouch and the Head Rest Chassis. Simply mount the Chassis to your headrest and slide the Lazarus Pouch into the adjustable 1 Inch Strap. To deploy, pull one of the two handles and the pouch will break away from the Chassis, ready for use.
Available in Jet Black.
