Preliminary experimental results show that our design for a constant-flow bladeless pump has the potential to serve as a left ventricle assist device (LVAD). Tests show the ability of the design to pump above 1 liter/min, the same order of magnitude as current technology. Distinguishing features of the design include its flexibility, scalability and simplicity. Modifications to the design show significant improvements in its pumping performance, demonstrating its potential to become a commercial device.
