There are a few different types of orthopedic dog beds, different fillings are used. Memory foam is made from durable, elastic foam and has the ability to form to the shape of the dog and mold itself to the dog‘s contours, then it restores to its original shape. You can also get gel-filled mattresses although the memory foam is better as it conforms to the body. Most orthopedic dog beds are constructed from a wooden frame with the memory foam mattress inserted. Orthopedic Dog Beds are lower to the ground which reduces the injuries sustained from jumping up and down from a bed or couch. Because the memory foam is light weight, the whole bed is reasonably easy to move around as it is not too heavy.
There has been little study or publication about the risks and benefits of bed rails. However, the reports of adult deaths and injuries from bed rails on file with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) (incidents from 1993 to 1996) provide significant information for attorneys investigating a potential negligence claim. The CPSC information reflects that seventy-four patients died as a result of the use of bed rails. Moreover, it in not unrealistic to conclude that the actual number of patient deaths far exceeded the reported deaths. Regardless of the true frequency of deaths, 70% of the reported patient deaths resulted from entrapment between the mattress and the bed rail such that the patient’s face was pressed against the mattress. 18% percent of the reported deaths were the result of entrapment and compression of the neck within the bed rails. Finally, 12% twelve percent of the reported deaths were caused by being trapped by the rails after sliding partially off the bed, resulting in neck flexion and chest compression.
