LEGGETT & PLATT® ELIMINATES BAR RETENTION, EXPANDS
FEATURES ON NEW 2016 PRODIGY™ ADJUSTABLE BASE
Redesigned Prodigy features MicroHook™ retainer system for a streamlined look.
CARTHAGE, Missouri, Jan. 17, 2016 – Leggett & Platt® Adjustable Bed Group has reinvented the Prodigy base, adding its exclusive MicroHook™ mattress-retention system to eliminate retainer bars often seen across the end of a bed. “In rethinking our retention system, we wanted to make the hospital bar disappear and deliver a sleek design. We didn’t just raise the bar, Leggett & Platt made it disappear,” said Jay Thompson, President of Adjustable Bed Group.
MicroHook™ is Leggett & Platt’s proprietary gripping application designed to keep the mattress from sliding off the base. In addition to eliminating retention bars, the 2016 Prodigy is equipped with new features like an industry-first capacitive-touch remote, pillow tilt, under-bed light and adjustable-height legs.
“When Leggett & Platt launched Prodigy in 2009, it was the first adjustable base in the industry to offer smartphone app control, a snore button and a sleep timer,” said Thompson. “The new 2016 Prodigy comes with the best features from the original, along with thoughtful innovations we think consumers will be excited to explore and welcome into their homes.”
Capacitive-Touch Remote and App
Responding to electrical properties in the human body, 2016 Prodigy’s backlit capacitive-touch remote requires a gentle touch to operate and includes a convenient tabletop cradle. The redesigned Bluetooth app for iOS and Android devices offers a choice of day or night mode and includes a sleep-timer, massage with wave and a gentle-wake alarm.
Additional 2016 Prodigy Features
- USB hub with four charging ports conveniently located on each side of the base
- Under-bed lighting makes getting up at night safe
- Programmable positions on the remote and app
- Heavy-duty height-adjustable legs allow for quick-and-easy elevation changes, moving from 6 inches to 10 inches in seconds
- Pillow-tilt positioning
- Dual, full-body massage with app-controlled wave feature
- Designed, engineered and assembled in the USA
