In the overlapping fields of human-computer interaction and game-based learning, methods for designing with physical movement play an immense role throughout the design and development process. The design of products for physical activities (i.e. exercise, fitness, play and physiotherapy) to the design of aircraft seating arrangements involve a range of design methods. The trend of literature review covered methods for design 'for' or 'of' movement-based interaction but not 'design with physical movement'. This study reports a systematic literature review of peer-reviewed articles on interaction design methods for 'design with movement' in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. The papers are selected from the ACM Digital Library, SpringerLink and Scopus with emphasis on selecting papers contributing to interaction design, service design and the broad experience design fields. The review is expected to inform the pattern of conducting the methods as part of the different activities in the design process. It also informs novel methods or variants of known methods. In total, 32 papers have been assessed eligible for reviewing with eventually 13 papers included for analysis and synthesis. The methods for design with physical movement are classified under four broad categories, Embodied Sketching, Eye-movement, Kinesthetic Experience, and Interaction through gestures.
