The continued use of mobile devices in future communication networks poses challenges to cognitive health. This can be seen in the occurrence of sensory overstimulation of mobile network subscribers. The occurrence of sensory overstimulation provides a drawback often used by the medical community to advocate against mobile phone usage. The research presented in this paper addresses this challenge via a three stage framework. The proposed framework aims to reduce the sensory overstimulation by spreading the cognition requirements associated with mobile device use over multiple sense agents (biological and non - biological). This is done to reduce the sensory load per sense agent. The proposed framework reduces the sensory load per sense agent. Analysis shows that reduction in the range (16.7 - 83.3)% on average is achieved.
