Can EEG-SMT be used sleep staging (delta wave is important for me)

Hey,

EEG-SMT should be capable of properly detecting delta waves. The units should work with any signals from 0.16Hz to 59Hz. As long as the signals you are interested in are in that range (or mostly in that range) - you are good to go.

Consider that it might be difficult to sleep with properly attached electrodes.

Wikipedia says "Delta waves can arise either in the thalamus or in the cortex."
