AHA Endorsement:

VESTEX Active Barrier Apparel

“The physicians have been very pleased with the lab coats. I have received many favorable comments. They have been most impressed by how it repels fluids and resists stains.” – Jerry Sanders, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Mercy Health Partners, Knoxville, Tenn.

Why We Endorse VESTEX® Active Barrier Apparel

Following the proprietary AHA Signature Due Diligence Process™, VESTEX apparel from Vestagen Protective Technologies, Inc. was selected for AHA Endorsement because it can play a vital role in hospitals’ strategic initiatives to improve health care worker and patient safety and protection. In addition, it stands out for its potential cost savings and patient preference.


1 Active Barrier apparel is designed as a replacement for traditional, every-day hospital attire and is designed to help repel splatter and spills of fluids and other material on the fabric. The fabric also contains an antimicrobial substance shown in laboratory and hospital settings to inhibit certain tested bacteria from growing on the fabric under the conditions of the tests. Neither liquid repellency nor antimicrobial tests are intended to assess the active barrier apparel’s ability to meet personal protective equipment requirements. The ability of the fabric to reduce exposure or infections has not been studied.
