© 2017 IEEE. Surface Electromyography (sEMG) has been commonly applied for analysing the electrical activities of skeletal muscles. The sensory system of maintaining posture balance includes vision, proprioception and vestibular senses. In this work, an attempt is made to classify whether the body is missing one of the sense during balance control by using sEMG signals. A trial of combination with different features and muscles is also developed. The results demonstrate that the classification accuracy between vision loss and the normal condition is higher than the one between vestibular sense loss and normal condition. When using different features and muscles, the impact on classification results is also different. The outcomes of this study could aid the development of sEMG based classification for the function of sensory systems during human balance movement.
