There is no doubt that military health care professionals work in challenging environments. In medical facilities or on the ground, they are exposed to a considerable amount of blood and other bodily fluid splashes. The Journal of Trauma-Injury Infection & Critical Care recently reported that there were 65 exposures to blood and other fluids per 1,000 people in a military health care setting, increasing the risk of bloodborne pathogen infections.

To provide military health care professionals with stronger personal protection, Florida-based companies Veterans Healthcare Supply Solutions (VHSS) and Vestagen have joined forces to offer high-tech Vestex medical apparel, including lab coats and scrubs.

Vestex garments feature a triple action technology that protects health care workers and their clothing, and keeps them comfortable during patient care. The fabric is impregnated with nano-sized particles, which change the surface tension of the fabric creating a barrier to blood and other bodily fluids. After the repellency feature sheds bulk contaminants, the Vestex antimicrobial protects the fabric from degradation due to microorganisms and eliminates odors caused by bacteria. In addition, Vestex is breathable, perspiration-wicking and naturally self-cleaning, helping to keep medical personnel clean, cool and dry.

"We are excited to partner with Vestagen to distribute such a revolutionary product," said Gary Skura, VHSS President. "Vestex provides improved personal protection of health care workers treating our war heroes and Veterans."

VHSS, a Service Disabled Veterans Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), provides health care related products and services to the federal government. With worldwide distribution capabilities to the U.S. military, Vestex will be available through VHSS to both The Veterans Administration and Department of Defense personnel.

"The men and women of the military are the first line of defense in our nation's security," said Ben Favret, president and CEO of Vestagen. "Vestex is the first line of defense for health care workers during patient care. The VHSS partnership is a positive step for us as we continue to provide health care professionals with the ability to protect themselves from unanticipated exposures to contaminated fluids."

Vestagen is led by a skilled management team with nearly a century of combined experience in the health care textile and apparel industries.
