Blood Pump

Through the application of Astronova’s unique positive displacement pump technology they are creating novel solutions for cardiovascular circulatory support and other blood or bio fluid applications.  The Astronova blood/bio-fluid pump is a high flow, low speed (RPM), highly efficient pumping system. The pump has low fluid velocity changes, with an RPM as low as 1/10th of current pumps in the market. This has the potential to dramatically reduce sheer stresses and damage to various bio-fluids, including blood.


Ben Wheeler is the CEO of Astronova Pty Ltd.  Astronova has developed a very unique, proprietary positive displacement pump specifically for cardiac assist and circulatory support in the medical field.  Ben is the third generation of technology entrepreneurs and inventors.  This pumping technology was invented by his grandfather and father.  Ben has held key roles in the development and commercialisation of this pump technology over the past 15 years.  His unique experience building technology start-ups and consulting / working alongside large multinational corporations during that time has given him specialist knowledge and global capabilities.  Ben’s role in Astronova is multidimensional; he is fundamental in the development of the core technology, manages engineering processes, prototyping and manufacturing as well as corporate strategy. Ben has a strong belief in the capabilities of the technology and the benefits it will provide in its application to the medical field. 


Ben will explain the history of the development of the pump and its potential.
