This paper investigate a fuzzy logic based high performance surface EMG classification algorithm for multifunctional upper limb prostheses. In this paper, we record 4 channels EMG data with surface electrodes from the forearm and aimed to recognize 8 different upper limb movements using heuristic fuzzy logic methods from these data. We use 50 surface EMG data for every function and evaluate the performance of this method.
