Add finger tracking directly into Xsens software

Hardware and software go hand in hand. The Xsens Metagloves by Manus are fully integrated into Xsens’ motion capture software, allowing you to deliver real-time finger data into your

existing pipeline. The gloves are immune to magnetic interference, similar to Xsens’ motion capture solutions, giving you full flexibility to capture anywhere. Finger tracking can be added to all Xsens motion capture hardware.








Stream combined data to a single source

Stream Xsens Metagloves finger data together with the Xsens body data as a single source into your animation pipeline.

Manus’ Quantum technology creates an accurate hand skeleton by automatically calibrating your hand size. It then sends the finger data to your MVN software, creating an accurate

digital copy of your hand that can mimic even the most complex movements and poses.
