Tactile apparent movement recognition is normally considered as a subjective sense of humans. Applying the tactile apparent movement to an engineering system, a quantitative evaluation study becomes necessary. In previous studies, finding the body-sway caused by the tactile apparent movement in a fixed experimental condition became possible. However, characteristic of the body-sway was not thoroughly investigated. In this study, investigating the body-sway caused by tactile apparent movement in a fixed experimental condition was aimed. Therefore, we focused on biological information, the body-sway and the comparison between the apparent movement recognized trials and the non-recognized trials. The findings of this research will be conducive to optimize the performance of the systems that are using the tactile apparent movement.
