I need to use EMG electrodes for an upper-limb EMG interfacing project. I have been unable to obtain EMG electrodes. Can ECG electrodes be used instead? If yes, what are the repercussions?
Thanks :D

Yes. Electrodes for sensing skin potential that results from deeper electrical activity can be the same. It is only when you are applying a stimulation that you will need to consider the electrical and chemical details of the contact.
