Kinesis works by projecting an artificial gravity field from the glove slip's palm emitter pad. Once grabbed by the leading edge of the artificial gravity field, the desired object's gravity is presumably nullified and drawn toward the wielder. Small objects will stop about a foot from the pad, suspended in midair, while movable objects like rail pallets and shutters come as close as their connections allow. Deactivation of the Kinesis effect releases the object, leaving it to fall in the direction of the nearest gravitational center of mass. However, reversing the field's polarity any time after achieving latch-on causes the object to be thrown away from the wielder with a velocity inversely proportional to the distance from the palm emitter pad.
Unlike with the Stasis Module, Kinesis' energy is drawn directly from the internal power source of the user's RIG, and as such does not require replenishment. Various features of the module can be upgraded at any workbench via nanocircuitry power node amelioration. The Kinesis Module fits into the top of the Stasis Module armband just forward of its rear focus cylinder, and works in conjunction with a round emitter pad built into the palm of the glove-slip component. The module allows the wielder control over almost any organic and inorganic material with the wave of a hand.
- The older models of Kinesis were able to be upgraded, meaning they don't start at full potential. This however was fixed in later models which do not need to be upgraded and can allows reach their maximum range.
- Kinesis acts almost as a muscle enhancer as it allows people to pick up and move objects much to heavy for human limits, or that particualr person's limits. It also acts as an extension of the user's arms which can be very useful on grabbing objects from far away and saves time.
- The fact that is an extension of the arm is proved to be very useful when an object floats off into space or a small, cramped area that would otherwise be impossible or to risky to get into.
