Best Adjustable Beds 2017

Unlike mattresses, adjustable beds have to have flawless engineering design. If mattresses help you to find best overnight sleep, bed frames are the ones that manage your body posture while you are busy reading a book, using your laptop or watching TV, all while lying on the bed.

Improper posture from using double, triple pillows under your head or slanting your back against headboard or wall while watching TV or using laptop are the primary reasons for neck and back pain.

Although there are a handful of brands in the market today, here in this article, I am only going to run you through the top 8 best adjustable beds that have secured The Best User Reviews for their perfect design and exquisite feature set.

Before we move into in-depth analysis in further sections, following is the quick snapshot of the how each of these beds meet the required criteria.

Adjustable Bed

Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed

2 beds with 2 remotes: No inconvenience to your sleeping partner!!

Prodigy 2.0 falls under split bed category with two separate adjustable bed units that can be controlled individually by two separate touch capacitive backlit remotes.

Unique Wallhugger® Engineering

There are two scenarios when you tilt an adjustable bed’s head and pillow position.

1. Adjustable bed without wall hugging feature: Bed moves forward and away from the wall, making you stretch backwards to reach your belongings on bedside table.

2. Prodigy 2.0 with innovative wall hugging feature: When head / pillow tilting is done, bed stays in its very position without the need for you to stretch backwards to reach the bedside table.

The innovative Wallhugger® engineering design of Prodigy 2.0 is what makes the difference here.

While the head / pillow are lifted upwards and away from the wall, the unique framework design glides the upper frame backwards towards the wall again, thus maintaining the bed’s position.

MicroHook™ Retention System

This advanced feature not only avoids mattress from sliding downwards but also makes it very much convenient and time saving while tucking bed sheets

  • This newly integrated feature replaces traditional mattress retaining bars
  • Although mattress retaining bars avoid sliding of beds but make it difficult to tuck bed sheets
  • With micro hooks on all four corners, all you have to do is just tuck the sheets as if to a normal mattress and then place the micro hooks on four corners

Height Adjustable Legs

Four heavy duty legs made of 2.5 inches diameter each can be adjusted between 6 to 8 inches height.

  • This design removes the need to add different lengths on top of each other for increasing or decreasing bed’s height
  • Just adjust the height and push the pin in the right cavity as per your height requirement (as shown in the image)

Remote Control Features

2 backlit Capacity-touch remotes, one for each bed with safety lock feature

Tilt with full-range adjustments: Pillow, Head and Feet

Programmable Positions: Head only, Feet only, TV/PC, Lounge, Flat and Zero-Gravity

Perhaps, this is one of the key takeaways offered exclusively by Prodigy 2.0. Instead of adapting to pre-set factory configured positions, you can now set and save your own favourite positions to precise accuracy.

M1 & M2 customizable positions: Removes the need for adjusting the head, pillow and leg tilts every time to your favourite positions, just do it once and save your positions as M1 & M2.

Additionally, two more customizable positions can be configured from mobile app (Android & Apple apps)

Only pre-set positions are 1. Snore and 2. Flat. These are factory configured as per industry standards and can also be accessed from mobile app.

Sync cable with split sizes allows lifting and lowering of upper and feet sections simultaneously. 2 Table-top holders to place remotes vertically

Remote Control Stand Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed


Body Massage

With wave action technology incorporated for dual massage (upper and lower body), therapeutic waves run from head to toe.

There are 3 speeds to select from - High, Medium and Low​

Although other adjustable beds have speeds with 1 to 10 pre-set points for massage but as per several user reviews, it is in fact easy to choose between 3 pre-sets offered by Prodigy 2.0.

USB Ports

With 4 USB ports on the outer side of each bed, there are a total of 8 ports.

Most other adjustable beds in fact have no USB ports at all or even if they offer one, they are embedded to the remote holding table-tops.

But having a USB port on remote holding table-tops is a very bad idea as at the slightest of movement, the remote that’s vertically placed will most probably fall down from the side tables.

Under-bed Lighting 

The unique under the bed lighting system provides minimal intrusion light that you might require in otherwise pitch dark rooms.

This can be controlled (turned off/on) using remote control.

Under bed lighting Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed

Under bed lighting Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed

Mobile App 

Using either Android or Apple mobile apps, you can control a host of features including sleep timer and wake-up alarm.

Sleep Timer 

If you have a habit of falling asleep while watching TV, then just select a timeslot on sleep timer and your bed will automatically return to flat position on reaching the selected time. The sync cables lower the head and foot sections simultaneously without waking you up.

Alarm Clock 

You can either set the remote to sound alarm or select the bed to vibrate to wake you up. As the two beds are split, it really won’t disturb your sleeping partner if you select vibration mode.

Reverie 8Q adjustable bed falls under high end category and split king version comes with 2 beds (W38"xL80" each, W76"xL80" Both) with 2 separate remote controls.

On features and performance metrics, Reverie 8Q stands next only to Prodigy 8.0 from Leggett & Platt.

Tilting

Reverie 8Q supports maximum range of head and feet tilting adjustments whereas the pillow tilts with a very slight degree along with head tilting.

  • Head Tilt – 62 degrees
  • Feet Tilt – 38 degrees

Wall Hugging

Although Reverie 8Q offers wall hugging feature but it is not as perfect as that of Prodigy 2.0.

The head section after lifting upwards moves away from the wall by a good distance when compared to Prodigy 2.0. However, if you exclude this comparison, Reverie 8Q’s wall hugging should surely suffice your requirement as the entire head section still remains next to your side table.

Mattress Retention System

Instead of mattress retention bars at the feet level noticed in other adjustable beds, Reverie 8Q comes with corner retention bars.

These 4 corner retention bars look very similar to the 4 microhook retention system of prodigy but the only major difference being that these 4 corner bars of Reverie 8Q are fixed and make mattress bedding a bit time consuming.

Height Adjustable Legs

The height adjustability ranges between 3 to 8 inches. There are two individual height lengths for each leg, 3 inches and 5.25 inches and when combined these give a maximum of 8.25 inches height factor.

Remote Control Features

Reverie 8Q’s remote control offers all the features of Prodigy 2.0 except that it is not touch sensitive.

Factory Pre-set positions: Flat, Anti-Snore and Zero-Gravity

Programmable memory positions:

This is one major area where Reverie 8Q scores above Prodigy 2.0. While Prodigy offers only 2 memory positions from its remote and another 2 from its mobile application, Reveries offers all 4 memory positions from its remote itself.

You can adjust head and feet sections as per your comfort for TV/PC, Lounge or book reading and save them as your favourite 4 memory positions, all directly from remote and without the need to set them from a different device.

Remote Control Holders

2 Remote holders for 2 beds are provided along with the package. These holders also have 1 USB port each.

And if you wish to connect your mobile or other devices from these remote holders, perhaps, it is advised to place them right next to the holders instead of using them while connected so as to avoid these holders from falling down and breaking.

USB Ports

As mentioned above, each remote control comes with a USB port. Other than that there are 2 more AC outlets for charging purpose. On the whole there are 3 for each bed and total of 6 USB ports.

Dual Massage

This feature is again unique from what Prodigy 2.0 dual massage feature has to offer.

Reverie 8Q Adjustable Bed Review Remote Control

Reverie 8Q Adjustable Bed Review Remote Control

Reverie 8Q Adjustable Bed

Reverie 8Q Adjustable Bed

You can set massage intensity / speeds between 1 and 10 as per your relaxation in Reverie 8Q. While Prodigy 2.0 offers only High / Medium / Low speeds, Reverie Q offering between 1 to 10 intensity levels means you can fine tune massage waves as per your precise relaxation needs.

Under-bed Lighting System

Reverie 8Q comes with under-bed lighting that can be controlled from remote control. Under-bed lighting system has now become part of all high end adjustable beds and they are very useful from consumers’ point of view as well.

Mobile App

While both sleep timer and alarm features are part of Prodigy 2.0 feature list, only alarm wake up feature is included in Reverie 8Q. However, Reverie bed’s “wake up by lifting head” is a significant one liked by many a number of users and this feature is somehow not part of Prodigy 2.0.

You can opt for two ways to wake you up from sleep. 1. with a gentle massage or 2. by slowly lifting your head by few degrees.

Dual Massage Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed

Dual Massage Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Split Adjustable Bed

Split-King size with 2 adjustable beds and 2 separate back-lit remotes. Tilts offered: Head & Foot

Wall Hugger Technology

Like in case of Prodigy 2.0, Leggett & Platt has also included the unique wall hugging technology in this DynastyMattress S-Cape model as well.

When the head section is lifted upwards and away from the wall, simultaneously the upper section of the frame is glided backwards thus maintain your original position, near to the wall and next to your bedside table.

Body Massage

Dynasty S-Cape offers two types of body massage. Dual massage with wave relaxation is the first case in which therapeutic waves run from head to toe relaxing you after a long and hectic day out.

In second case, simply opt for standard massage for overall relief where massage feature works in equal vibration across your entire body.

Under-bed lighting System

Yes, very similar to Prodigy 2.0, Leggett & Platt has also included Dynasty S-Cape with under-bed lighting system.

These lights being beneath the beds are less intrusive and they function more like navigators, making it easy for you in getting on and off your bed in the middle of the night.  The lights can be controlled (turned On/Off) from your remotes.

USB Ports

Unfortunately, this is perhaps the only downside for Dynasty S-Cape as it does not offer any USB Ports. Even a basic adjustable bed from Classic beds offers 2 ports on one side.

Anyways, with Dynasty bed offering wall-hugger feature, you are very well placed next to your bedside tables and thus it’s very easy for you to connect your mobile and other devices from wall sockets.

Remote Control Features

Dynasty Adjustable bed comes with 2 wireless remote controls with all the features offered by Prodigy 2.0. And the only difference being that Prodigy 2.0 remotes are touch capacitive.

Programmable Memory Positions

Dynasty Adjustable bed also offers customizable positions. You can happily tilt your head and feet to your desired level of convenience and the remote offers to you save these positions as your favourite ones (M1 & M2).

And when needed, all you have to do is simply select your favourite M1 or M2 positions and your bed will automatically tilt as per your saved inclinations.

While Prodigy 2.0 offers 4 customizable positions in total, two from remote and two more from its mobile app, however, in this Dynasty S-Cape model, the mobile app feature is not provided so the total available customizable positions are limited to only two.

Pre-set Positions

  • Zero-Gravity
  • Anti-Snore
  • Flat

Dynasty remote also offers Zero-Gravity, Anti-Snore and Flat options. Anti-Snore feature lifts the head section by nearly 7 inches thereby opening the airways for better breathability.

The Flat button can be customized to work in two ways, 1. One-touch and 2. Press and Hold.

Although there are no remote holders like in case of Prodigy 2.0, but the base of Dynasty remotes are designed to allow them to stand vertically on your bedside table, removing the need to have separate remote holders.

Note: We will be reviewing Reverie 7S Split King version here, nonetheless there are other sizes as well for you to choose from based on your comfort and budget.

CHECK OTHER SIZES & PRICES

Reverie 7S Split-king version falls under high-end category and comes with 2 separate beds and 2 separate remote controls, one for each bed.

Tilt Positions

Reverie 7S offers head and foot tilts wherein the head can be adjusted up to 65 degrees and the foot section can be adjusted to 38 degrees in precise. However, pillow tilt option is not supported.

Wall Hugging Feature 

Yes, technically speaking Reverie 7S comes with wall hugging feature.

Similar to Reverie 8Q, the wall hugging feature although, is not as perfect as Prodigy 2.0 but it’s still very satisfactory as per several user reviews. While Prodigy 2.0 wall hugging feature doesn’t create a gap between head section and wall, in case of Reverie 8Q and 7S, there will around half a feet distance between head section and wall after the head is lifted upwards.

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Wall Hugger

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Wall Hugger

Mattress Retention System

Like in Reverie 8Q, the 7S model also offers corner retention bars on 4 sides and these are fixed ones. Hence, might become a bit time consuming while putting on the bed sheets.

Height Adjustable Legs

Height can be adjusted between 3 inches to 8 inches. 3 inch and 5 inch lengths are provided for each leg when combined give a maximum height advantage of 8 inches.

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Split King Mattress Retention System

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Split King Mattress Retention System

Remote Control Features

While Reverie 8Q remote’s features are on par with that of Prodigy 2.0 but certain features are stripped in Reverie 7S remote.

7S offers only 2 memory programmable positions are supported while in Reverie 8Q you can save 4 positions directly on the remote. Prodigy 2.0 offers 2 memory positions from remote and 2 more from its mobile app.

Preset Positions 

Flat, Anti-Snore and Zero-Gravity

Memory Programmable Positions:

You can adjust both the head and feet sections as per your favourite angle for viewing TV, working on PC or relaxing in lounge position and save them as your favourite M1 & M2 for future access.

USB Ports

This is another grey area as Reverie 7S does not offer any USB ports, neither on the sides nor on the remote holders. Moreover, there are in fact no remote holders coming with this 7S version.

Dual Massage

Very similar to 8Q, Reverie 7S also offers 1. full body wave massage and 2. only head or feet massage. Again you can choose the massage intensity level from the 10 intensity points using the remote control.

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Split King Remote Control

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Split King Remote Control

Some of the high end features that are not included in Reverie 7S include under-the-bed lighting system, USB ports, no remote holders, sleep timer and alarm. Perhaps, owing to lack of these features, 7S can be said to be more of a mid-range adjustable bed than a high end version.

Mobile App

You can now do all the remote control based functions through the Bluetooth powered mobile app for Apple devices or via the free for tablet PCs. However, “wake up” by lifting the head section feature which is part of Reverie 8Q is not included in 7S mobile app.

Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Frame Review

Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Frame Review

If you are looking for an adjustable bed with either low price tag or would want to start with a modest one that has all basic features to be an adjustable bed, then I would suggest you to go for Classic Brands Adjustable bed for the following reasons.

  • Priced low but sells in equal numbers like most other premium adjustable beds in the market
  • Has high user rating and customer satisfaction
  • Comes with all required basic features an adjustable bed needs to have (at this price range not fair to expect advanced features of Legget & Platt)
  • 4 pre-set memory positions (TV/PC, Lounge, Flat and Zero Gravity)
  • Provides Zero Gravity pre-set position
  • Dual Massage feature from head to feet
  • Wireless Remote Control with a host of features
  • 2 USB ports
  • Retention bars for holding the mattress from sliding downwards

Tilt Options

Head & Feet only with no pillow tilt option

Remote Control Features

There are 4 pre-set memory positions that you can access from remote control.

TV/PC, Lounge, Flat and Zero Gravity memory positions are all pre-set as per industry standards and non-customizable.

However, fine-tuning head and foot tilt is supported and you can adjust these tilts to fit your favourite position.

Height Adjustable legs:

On the brighter side, the legs can be adjusted all the way up to 10.5 inches. There are two individual height lengths provided for each leg, 4 inch and 6.5 inch. Combined they give total 10.5 inches height.

Remote Control Options Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Frame Review

Remote Control Options Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Frame Review

Mattress Retention System

To avoid mattress from sliding downwards, Classic brands adjustable bed comes with one mattress retention bar at the feet position.

Body Massage

Offering dual massage feature with the attached price tag of Classic brands in itself can be rated as a big positive. However, on the downside user reviews suggest that the massage feature is not as silent as expected.

USB Ports

There are 2 USB ports but only on one side of the bed. With Prodigy 2.0 adjustable bed having total 8 USB ports and few other beds that come with absolutely no USB ports, perhaps, Classic brands offering 2 ports is a buyable feature.

Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame, Head and Foot

Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame, Head and Foot

Pragmatic Adjustable bed is another low end version in adjustable beds segment. Yet it’s high on performance and durability scale. It is designed to meet the basic requirements and comes with an extra-ordinary built quality that makes this bed stand on top in best sellers’ category.

Pragmatic falls under split-king category and hence has two separate beds. However, only one remote control is included as part of the package but you can separately buy another one for the second bed from the manufacturer.

Tilt Positions

The bed allows head and feet tilts which can be controlled from wired remote control. You can fine tune tilts to set TV/PC, lounge, zero gravity and flat positions.

Although these positions are not pre-set factory configured on the remote, yet by tuning the head up to 80 degrees and feet by up to 30 degrees you can achieve desired accuracy as per your convenience and comfort. Another best feature, the upward and downward tuning is slow enough to help you stop at the right position.

Height Adjustability

The bed stands at a height of 14 inches from the ground and it is somehow fixed. The delivery does not include additional leg lengths but 14 inches is much on the higher side giving you plenty of storage room under the bed.

Head and Feet Tilts Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame

Head and Feet Tilts Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame

Mattress Retention System

To hold the mattress from sliding downwards, the frame comes with a retention bar at the feet section.

As this bed from Pragmatic falls under low end category, it’s not fair to expect advanced features like wall hugging, dual massage, USB ports, emergency power down etc.

Mattress Retainer Bars Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame

Mattress Retainer Bars Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame

Assembly

Assembling the components is much simpler than it might initially look. All required components for assembling are included in the package along with a detailed installation guide.

As per several user reviews, it won’t take more than an hour for even a newbie to put together the entire bed. Most part of the bed comes assembled and all you have to do is just put the motors at right places as indicated in the guide, join the lift pistons and the retention bars at the feet level.

The remotes are wired, so it’s apt to run them along the frame and tape them so that they don’t obstruct your under the bed storage.

Frame

Pragmatic bed is made from powder coated steel frame and comes in stylish gray colour. The innovative design makes it foldable and easy for storage or transportation. The frame is on the heavier side but the middle legs are extremely sturdy and comfortably support weights up to 600 lbs.

Final Say: Best Price Ever For A Split Bed Version

Powered by super quiet motor and durable steel frame, Pragmatic adjustable bed is THE BEST SELLER in low end adjustable beds category. It comes at an affordable price tag with all necessary functions including split-king version with remote control and high range of adjustability.

Although ShipShape Adjustable bed falls under low end category, it can comfortably support weights up to 450 pounds without creating an iota of noise. Thanks to trademark technology powered WhisperQuiet motor. Furthermore, as it’s made from Leggitt & Platt, be assured of highest quality and durability when compared to other low end category adjustable beds.

Setting up the bed again easy and less time consuming and in case you need some quick help, then there is the step by step installation process in the user manual for quick reference.

ShipShape Adjustable bed’s shipping includes both the bed base and bed frame packaged together.

Tilt Positions

The bed allows head only, feet only and both head & feet tilting. The upper limit for head tilt is 60 degrees and for feet tilt it is 45 degrees. You can simultaneously adjust both to create your own desired angle for a zero gravity like position.

Remote Control

This is a wired remote control with very simple and user friendly interface. It has only 3 basic functions – Up and down buttons for lifting or lowering of head, feet or both as shown in the adjacent image.

ShipShape Adjustable Bed Base with Ultra-Quiet Motor and Wired Remote

ShipShape Adjustable Bed Base with Ultra-Quiet Motor and Wired Remote

If the only drawback that makes this ShipShape bed lag behind in low end adjustable beds segment is the missing of flat button, then the major plus is that the package includes headboard brackets that are otherwise not provided by any of the other low end beds.

Mattress Retention System

In this version of ShipShape, Leggitt & Platt has not included its innovative MicroHook® Retention System. It rather includes the regular mattress retention bar at the foot level like all other adjustable beds.

Height Adjustability

While the base leg length is 4 inches with accompanying castors to hold the entire bed from sliding, there are 4 sets of different lengths included.

As per your height requirement you can use 3 inch / 4 inch / 5 inch and 7 inch lengths as per your height requirement. On the whole you can adjust between 7 to 11 inches using any one of the given 4 additional pieces.

Mattress Retention System ShipShape Adjustable Bed Base with Ultra-Quiet Motor and Wired Remote

Mattress Retention System ShipShape Adjustable Bed Base with Ultra-Quiet Motor and Wired Remote

Perhaps, in any of the adjustable beds falling in low end category it is better not to expect advanced features like wall hugging, anti-snore, alarm, dual massage etc.

My personal suggestion, go with industry proven Leggitt & Platt's ShipShape brand as it comes at the same price tag like other low end models.

Sealy Ease Adjustable bed base, part of low end models, falls under split-king category with each bed measuring of 84L x 36W.

Tilt Positions

Sealy adjustable bed supports both Head and Feet tilt. The degree of adjustability is comparatively high as the head section can be lifted up to 60 degrees and the feet section can be lifted by 50 degrees.

With such wide degree of adjustability, you can fine tune head and feet sections to set your own positions for TV/PC, lounge and zero-gravity. As this a low-end model, there is no scope to expect memory programmable positions to save and tune into at a later time.

Remote Control

The remote’s user interface is very simple and easy to use. Perhaps, the only pre-set feature offered from the wireless remote control is FLAT position.

It has up and down tuning buttons for both head and feet sections. Adjustability includes head only, feet only and both head plus feet. And additionally one touch press button to bring the bed back to flat position.

Mattress Retention System

Both the bed bases come with mattress retention bars to hold the mattresses from sliding downwards.

Height Adjustability

The height of Sealy adjustable bed base is fixed at 9 inches above the ground. The legs are made of 2.5 inch durable black metal.

Sealy Ease adjustable bed Warranty

The bed comes with 1 year labour warranty, 5 year part warranty and 15 year frame warranty.

Final Say

The wide degree of head and feet sections adjustability combined with durable frame quality, it is a widely accepted brand and has also earned very good reviews and ratings online. User feedback is its unique selling point.

Conclusion

All the above adjustable beds we have reviewed so far, be it high end models or low end models, are the best top rated beds in the industry.

While Prodigy 2.0 and DynastyMattress S-Cape both fall under high end models with split-king beds and their packages include two gel memory foam mattresses, Prodigy 2.0 has all advanced features not to be found even in any other high end adjustable bed in the market to date.

In the low end category, Pragma Bed Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame is the best seller but we somehow cannot ignore Classic brands as it also comes with its own mattresses while ShipShape adjustable bed is manufactured by Leggitt & Platt is known for its quality and durability.
