Microhook Mattress Retention

Eliminates the need for messy mattress retention bars

More Info

Microhook mattress retention systemTraditionally, adjustable beds were fixed with a mattress retention bar at the foot of the bed to prevent the mattress from slipping down when the head of the bed is raised up. The only problem with the mattress retention bar was that it was cumbersome to work the bed sheets behind it.

The microhook system introduced by Leggett & Platt eliminates the need for a mattress retention bar as the microhook region is able to stick to the mattress and hold it in place. The Prodigy Comfort Elite adjustable base comes with 2 microhook retention strips, one at the bottom of the bed and the other at the mid region of the base. They do a great job of keeping the mattress from slipping away.

Independent Pillow Tilting

Other beds have ‘dependent’ pillow tilting. But the Comfort Elite has ‘independent’ pillow tilting.

More Info

Prodigy Comfort Elite Remote Independent Pillow Tilting

There are dozens of adjustable beds with Pillow Tilting. But the Pillow Tilting on the Prodigy 2.0 Elite Comfort is like no other. It has ‘independent’ pillow tilting. In other words, you can raise or lower the pillow tilt ‘independent’ of the head tilt. On most other beds with pillow tilting, it is ‘dependent’ on the head tilt. The Pillow Tilt will only start to rise once the ‘Head Tilt’ is maximally raised. Basically, there is one button for both head and pillow tilt.

In contrast, with independent pillow tilting, there is a dedicated button on the remote for the pillow tilt. This way, you can even raise your head and neck while the rest of the bed is completely flat. That is something you cannot do with ‘dependent’ pillow tilting!


Wall Hugging

An industry leader in wall hugging

More Info

While the Comfort Elite raises itself, it simultaneously slides back towards the headboard so that the sleeper stays close to the night stand. The Prodigy Comfort Elite typically slides back about 10-12 inches.

In contrast, some adjustable beds out there that call themselves wall hugger models move back only a few inches and therefore you still end up in front of the night stand.

However, note that if you put on a thick 15 inch mattress, however, much the wall hugging takes you back, you’ll invariably end up away from the night stand!

Adjustable Height Legs

Adjust leg height from 6 – 10 inches

More Info

At 6 inch leg height, the height of the adjustable base, excluding the mattress, would be 14 inches.

At 10 inch leg height, the height of the adjustable base, excluding the mattress, would be 18 inches. And a 14 inch mattress to the already 18 inch bed frame and you have a 32 inch height bed. If you are only 5’4″ like me, 32 inches is way too tall.

Remember to set your legs to the shortest setting and to buy a thin mattress if you are as short as I am… No pun intended!!

Full Body Massage

Two dedicated motors for head and foot massage

More Info

A relaxing massage at the end of the day not only relieves the tensed muscles, but also improves blood circulation from head to toe for overall better health. The Prodigy Comfort Elite has both pulse and wave massage functions.

However, be aware that the thicker the mattress the less effective the massage functions will be.

Major Deficiencies of the Leggett and Platt Prodigy Comfort Elite Base Base

Not the Cheapest of Adjustable Beds

Luxury of this level don’t come cheap

More Info

Leggett and Platt Prodigy Comfort Elite adjustable base has almost everything you can expect from a modern adjustable bed. That is exactly why the bed doesn’t come cheap.

On top of that, the bed is made in the USA by the irony of adjustable beds Leggett and Platt. This combination is what makes this bed an expensive one.


Is a Foundation-style Adjustable Base

This is not a Furniture-style Adjustable Base

More Info

If you already have a wooden bed frame and you intend to place this adjustable bed inside that wooden frame, the Foundation-style Prodigy Comfort Elite works just fine.

However, if you want to use the newly bought adjustable bed as a standalone bed, you might want to consider purchasing a Furniture-style adjustable base like this one.

No Elevation Lift

Can still be effective against acid reflux.

More Info

Elevation lift is a relatively new feature introduced to the adjustable bed market. At the time of writing, this feature is specifically available on the brand of adjustable beds known as Glideaway.

Not Feather-weight

160 to 330 lbs depending on the size of bed

More Info
  • Twin XL size: 160+ lbs
  • Queen size: 190+ lbs
  • Split King: nearly 330 lbs
