on which platform are you working?
TuioClient is using libfreenect to access kinect. so it won't work 
simultaneously with pix_freenect or fux_kinect.
i don't know if the linux kernel drivers work in parallel to libfreenect 
but i don't think so.

with pix_freenect (1) you can grab rgb and depth streams from kinect sensor.
you can do the (hand)tracking in pd by using pix_opencv tools and/or 
also pix_curve can be useful to get images of certain distance out of 
the depth stream from the kinect. (in combination with switching into 
yuv colorspace)

if you decide for pix_openni (2) you can use the hand tracking or 
skeleton tracking from nite/openni together with the image and depth stream.
