Limit events of a specific keyboard to a specific application

For research purposes we are measuring human brain activity under the 
influence of external stimuli (visual/auditory/somatosensory). The 
subject has to reply to tasks using 'button boxes' which are implemented 
as (response) keyboards. During the session, the operator should control 
the experiment via the (main) keyboard (without getting his keyboard 
inputs messed up by the response keyboards).

Therefore I have detached the (response-)keyboards from the
virtual core keyboard
using the 'xinput --float name-of-response-kbd' comand.

Next I'd like to attach these keyboards to a specific process only. Can 
someone give some advice how to do that?

Regards, Roger
