Abstract. In the world of right handed person (RHP) life, left handed person (LHP) is known to show their ability in adapting right handed-purpose goods such as table top chair in the classroom. The less number of researches lead this study to investigate in-depth about the adaptability of LHP population. This study aims to identify LHPs behavior according to their productivity, adaptability, movement orientation and comfort level during conducting writing and drawing tasks. Visual observation is conducted to determine the typical movement during the tasks that done on the common table and table-top chair. 14 subjects were employed in this experiment that consist 7 LHP and 7 RHP. All subjects are students of Faculty of Arts and Design. Data recorded from video is analyzed by ImageJ software by splitting video data into images frame. To verify data gained from visual observation, visual analog scale method (Semantic Differential) was used to clarify all responds from subjects. The results of experiments showed that the level of LHP adaptability significantly higher than RHP in term of workstation changes. The result of this study is formulated to contribute the design improvement of workstation for LHP regarding universal design issues.

Keywords: adaptation; left handers writing activity; drawing activity.
