This paper discusses the design and application of magnetic-based position tracking in surgical trainers. The utilization of magnetic-based position tracking in Laparoscopic Trainers provides a cost-effective solution to the next generation of medical education, training and evaluation. The utilization of 3D printed parts as well as off the shelf electronics allows us to maximize accuracy while minimizing design cost. Our current design costs less than $300.00 while providing results with an error of 1.474–14.265%.
