Review of the Literature: Acuity-Adaptable Patient Room | The Center for Health Design
Usually, a literature review can be described as an objective, concise, and critical summary of published research literature pertinent to the subject being researched in an article.

Purpose: This review aims to identify measures suitable for evaluation of physical comfort in a range of clinical settings or specialised areas. Method: A review of literature included articles that evaluated an intervention, position, equipment or surface for comfort or discomfort. Electronic databases, hand searches and internet sources were used. Results: In addition to several theoretical papers on comfort, 29 studies were identified that used 'comfort' or 'discomfort' as outcomes. There was a lack of consistency in measurement of comfort and researchers used a wide range of different scales and tools.
