make project with emg muscle sensors

Hi all, this is my first post in here, so apologies if I miss any trivial things in advance.

I am about to make a new project with muscle sensors, in order to track down the muscular activity while typing (-afaik best spot to put the sensors for that activity is at the forearms).

With a bit of researching I found this previous thread:
Arduino Forum which looks quite close for my project in terms of gear.

I've checked some videos and reviews concerning the specific kit, I would like to ask though before I make any purchases,

  • if anyone had any experience using the Uno and this muscle kit, ...maybe there is a board which is considered better for that ?
  • or any other emg kit that feels more reliable for this use

Any info appreciated.
