Description/Abstract

With many digital interaction designs, we can choose to operate the devices from a variety of postures – what we call self-positioning. In this paper we test two of these choices – sitting vs standing against standard neuropsychological assessments of cognitive executive function. We show that such choices do have significant effects on various cognitive processes. We argue therefore that there is an opportunity to extend parameters of digital interaction design to include self-position in order to optimize that design’s effectiveness for its intended activity.
