S-Cape Features and Benefits

Legget and Platt’s S-Cape adjustable bed base is the company’s entry-level model, and my preferred choice out of the three frames.

In my opinion, the S-Cape offers the best value for the money. It has advanced features that other high-end frames offer, but the frame is still easy to use.

To understand what I mean, take a look at the frame’s features:

  • Dual, full-body massage
  • 2 pre-set memory buttons
  • 2 wireless remotes
  • One-touch button programming
  • Wall-hugger feature
  • Compatible with memory foam king mattress or twin XL mattresses.

Dual, Full-Body Massage

One of the most attractive features of this bed frame is the dual, full-body massage. This feature helps relax your muscles and relieves tension, which, according to the American Massage Therapy Association, helps you sleep better at night.

The massage function is controlled through the wireless remote. Another thing I like about the massage function is that it has an automatic shut-off feature, so the vibrations can soothe you to sleep.

2 Preset Memory Buttons & One-Touch Button Programming

The S-Cape has two preset memory buttons built into its remote. These memory buttons allow you to “save” your favorite position, so you can return to that position anytime you please. One-touch button makes it easy to save your position for later use.

The great thing about the memory feature is that you don’t have to play around with the bed’s positioning every night. All you have to do is press one button, and the bed automatically adjusts to your preferred position.

2 Wireless Remotes

Like other Legget and Platt bed frames, the S-Cape comes with two wireless remotes – one for each side of the bed.

The wireless remotes allow you to adjust the position, select your programmed positions, and control the massage feature. They’re lighted, too, so you can always see the controls – even in the dark.

Because the remotes are wireless, you don’t have to worry about getting tangled up in cords. And because the remote is lighted, you don’t have to get up and turn on the light to see the controls.

Wall-Hugger Feature

The S-Cape’s Wall-hugger feature keeps your mattress right up against the wall, so you’re close to your night table and you never have to worry about your pillows falling behind the bed in the middle of the night.

Compatible with Single King or Dual Twin XL Mattresses

With the S-Cape, you never have to settle on one mattress size – this model is compatible with both a single king and two twin XL mattresses.

Memory foam, split king mattresses work best because they have the flexiblitiy you need to adjust your bed’s position.

Regardless of which size mattress you choose (sold separately), it’s important to ensure that it’s compatible with adjustable beds.

Prodigy 2.0 Features and Benefits

The Prodigy 2.0 is very similar to the S-Cape, but comes with a few more features that more discerning users may want. If you want app control and the ability to plug in USB devices to your bed, the Prodigy may be the better option for you.

Here’s a quick rundown of this bedframe’s features:

  • Bluetooth app, with two settings on the remote and four memory settings
  • Dual massage
  • Underbed lighting
  • Snore button
  • 8 built-in USB ports
  • MicroHook retention system
  • Wall-Hugger system
  • Backlit remote

Bluetooth App

The Prodigy works with a companion Bluetooth app that allows you to control some of the frame’s most vital features. The app is compatible with both Apple and Android devices, so anyone can use their smart device to control this frame.

The app has three main control features:

  • Wake Alarm: Set the gentle Wake Alarm feature up to 24 hours in advance, so you wake up peacefully. Forget having to jump out of bed to turn off a blaring alarm.
  • Sleep Timer: Setting a sleep timer returns the bed back to a flat position after 10-90 minutes (whichever time you prefer).
  • Massage Wave: With the touch of a button, you can turn on and control the bed’s massage wave feature.

The app also has four memory settings, so the frame can “remember” your favorite positions. There are also two memory settings on the included remotes for added convenience.

The great thing about the Bluetooth app is if you happen to lose the wireless remote, you can still control your bed.

Dual Massage

Like other beds from Legget and Platt, the Prodigy has a dual massage feature that allows both users to enjoy tension relief and pure relaxation.

The massage function can be controlled through the wireless remote or the companion app.

The benefit of having a massage function is that you can melt away stress and tension, allowing for a more restful night of sleep.

Built-in USB Ports

If you like to use your smartphone, tablet or laptop in bed, you’ll appreciate the built-in USB ports in this bed frame.

There are eight ports in total, which allow you to plug in and charge your devices while you’re in bed. This eliminates the need to use an extension cord or use additional plugs in your outlets.

Underbed Lighting & Snore Button

One nice – and very convenient – feature of the Prodigy bed frame is underbed lighting. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, the lighting can help illuminate your way without you having to turn on a bright overhead light.

The underbed lighting also makes it easier to see anything you may have stored under your bed, and can even act as a nightlight.

Along with underbed lighting, this frame has a snore button. The snore button is a great feature because it helps both partners enjoy a good night of sleep. If you notice that your partner is snoring, simply hit the button and it will tilt their upper mattress up to stop their snoring.

If you have a partner that has a habit of snoring every night – and keeping you up – then this may be the right bed frame for you.

Backlit Remote

Worried about being able to see the remote in the dark? Don’t be. The Prodigy has a backlit remote that allows you to see the controls even in the middle of the night.

The lighted remote means that you don’t have to get up out of bed to turn on a light just to see the controls.

MicroHook and Wall-Hugger Systems

If you’re worried about the mattress slipping off the side of the frame, the MicroHook system keeps the mattress in place.

The MicroHook system completely eliminates the need for retainer bars.

The Prodigy also has the brand’s famous Wall-Hugger system, which keeps you right near your nightstand and prevents the pillows from falling off the top of the mattress.

Premier Features and Benefits

The Premier frame is the most advanced option from Legget and Platt, and it comes with a slew of features, such as:

  • Wireless Bluetooth remote
  • App controls
  • Pillow-tilt function
  • LP Connect
  • Dual massage
  • USB ports
  • Wall-Hugger system
  • MicroHook system

Wireless Bluetooth Remote, USB Ports & LP Connect

The Premier comes equipped with a wireless, Bluetooth remote that allows you to program your favorite positions. Like other Legget & Platt bed frames, you can adjust your bed to your favorite position with the touch of a button.

App controls allow you to adjust a variety of settings, from lighting to sound, airflow and more without ever having to leave your bed.

The included USB ports allows you to plug in your devices to charge them while you’re in bed.

I really like these three features (Bluetooth remote, USB ports and LP Connect) because you can control all of the bed’s settings without having to even get up out of the bed.

Dual Massage

The Premier frame offers the same dual massage feature you’ll find in all of the brand’s adjustable bed frames.

Each user can adjust the massage function to their liking without disturbing their partner.

I like that the massage function can be controlled through the included remote, so you don’t have to get up out of bed to enjoy the benefits of this comforting feature.

Wall-Hugger and MicroHook Systems

The MicroHook and Wall-Hugger systems ensure that your mattress stays in place and that your bed is close to the nightstand.

What I like most about this feature is the fact that you never have to worry about your pillows falling off the mattress or the dogs pushing the mattress out of place (this can happen if you have two mattresses).

Pillow-Tilt Function

If you’re the type of person that likes to lay in bed and read, you will appreciate this feature. The head of the bed can be adjusted with the touch of a button to give your head extra support while you read, watch TV or enjoy your massage.

Which Legget and Platt Mattress is Right for You?

Should you choose the S-Cape, Prodigy or Premier? The right choice for you will depend on your personal needs and preferences, but I prefer the S-Cape because it’s simple, affordable and offers almost all of the same features the other models offer. Ultimately – in my opinion – the S-Cape offers the best value for the money.

Regardless of which one you choose, an adjustable bed not only offers extra comfort; it also offers relief from acid reflux (according to studies) and snoring (says NBC News). All three of these bed frames are built with high quality materials and will provide you with years of use with proper care.
