A variation of the bunk bed is the loft bed, where there is a bed on top, but the lower area can be used for a variety of purposes. It is sometimes used as a storage space. It is common these days to find the empty space designed into a study with a table and storage cabinets. Sofa beds are a good option if you need to have a spare bed for occasional visitors. They are used as sofas or seating arrangement during the day and can be unfolded into a bed for the night. There are numerous designs available and one should choose based on comfort and ease of use. Traditionally the futons were thin mattresses that were and are still used in Japan. They are folded and stored away when not in use. Today they have been modified and used in the west to look similar to a sofa bed. They usually have a wooden or metal frame with a thin mattress which can be used as a sofa and unfolded to be used as a bed.
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.
