USB Device input mapping to a keyboard key

I'm stepping out of my forte here, and I'm looking for a bit of help. I have a set of Konami hand sensors that were used for a PS2 game, and I'm trying to get them to work with an emulator on my computer. The problem is, they don't have a normal PS2 controller style input, they're USB. I've tried a few programs like Key Mapper and Xpadder, but they don't recognize the device. A game called Step Mania is able to use the input, so I know they're sending something.

I don't know if a program exists to do that already, so I'm thinking I might have to go more basic. Get the raw data from each signal, and find a way to map it myself. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to even get started. I've tried to find a USB capture program, but the ones I found all require extra hardware, and I know there's got to be another way.

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.
