This tutorial can be used for all Prime II and Prime X gloves, including both the Xsens and OptiTrack partner models.
It also uses MANUS Core 1.9. For MANUS Core 2.0 and up, please take a look at this tutorial.
Calibration in MANUS Core 2.0 and up
First, MANUS Core will check for connected gloves and dongles.
If your devices are connected wired or in the pairing mode, they will light up green. If they are not detected, the icons will remain greyed out.
Once your devices are connected, you will be able to calibrate your Prime gloves.
There are three steps to calibrate each Prime Series glove.
Make a fist: close your fingers and rest the thumb on the side. Then, wait for the calibration of this step to complete.
Straighten the fingers and bend the thumb. Again, hold still till the step is complete.
Make a pistol: straighten your index finger and thumb , and close all other fingers. Wait for the calibration to complete.
Do the same for your other glove.
Calibration in MANUS Core 1.9
In the Dashboard select a glove from the 'Gloves' tab.
In the bottom section click on the 'Calibrate Glove' button.
Check the 'Progress automatically' box to go through all of the calibration steps automatically.

In this step you straighten your fingers while bending your thumb. This calibrates the sensors to your fingers in the most straight position. It also calibrates the thumb sensors in the most bent position.
This step calibrates the thumb sensors in the most straight position.
