Effective grasping arrangements were tested using various arrangements of graspable objects and hands positioned to perform the grasping action. Forty-two participants were simultaneously shown pictures of objects (tools and tableware, such as a cup or pliers) and one grasping hand in various arrangements and asked to rate whether the object and the hand were arranged in such a way that the object would be easy to grip. Results show that the alignment effect was not observed for some arrangements. In addition, when the object and hand were congruent with the orientation of the participant's body, the object was not always considered to be easily graspable. However, some participants felt that arrangements were easily graspable even when the arrangement was not congruent with the orientation of their bodies. The results suggest that an effective grasping arrangement is affected by the visual characteristics of the shape of the object and by the arrangement of both the object and the body, but that the object's alignment, congruency, and orientation with the body are not always required for effective grasping.
