Can you help compare the wall hugger features with different adjustable beds?

Our understanding is that where the nightstands are placed relative to your ability to reach objects from either prone or upright position should be as static as possible. Though the 8Q when it is upright moves 11" from the wall, yet the base doesn't move perceptibly backwards till the back is around 45 degrees. Using the pencil technique you asked for compared to a static point on the nightstand, when the bed was in full upright position the 8Q actually brought you 1 and a half inches backward relative to the nightstand.

Our L & P Prodigy the top of the base is 6 inches away while the top of the mattress is 12 (the thickness of the base and mattress impacts the distance from the headboard) and the backward distance traveled is 8 inches. We are very pleased with the wall hugger feature.

For those of you that are willing to take the time participate and help with this and own an adjustable bed with a wall hugger feature I would interested in two measurements to find out if they are all the same or similar of if there are wall hugger features that do a better job of keeping you even with your bedside table.

1. A measurement of how many inches the the top of the bed is away from the wall at its closest point when it's in the fully raised position.

2. For the second measurement if you put a pencil or other thin object in the middle of one side edge pointing out and then line it up with something on the floor that won't move when you raise the bed you will be able to measure the amount of backwards travel when the bed is fully raised.


Rize Contemporary and Rize Contemporary II:
With head tilt feature, approximately 10.5" from wall, measuring on the top deck at the point closest to the head end of the deck (see photo).
Backward travel approximately 5.5"



Rize Relaxer (no head tilt feature):
Approximately 9.5" from the wall.
Backward travel approximately 8".

I am trying to understand whether the wall hugger feature changes the position of the body on the mattress. With our regular adjustable bed, my wife is short and when she raises the head, her body slides down to the bend. When she lowers, she feels like she is at the bottom of the bed. We would like to try the wall hugger because of the proximity of the night stands, but for the price of a new bed, will she still have the same body positioning. We haven't found a a store in the Boston area that has a wall hugger on display to do our own test.

Hi jrr02,

The wall hugger features don't change the position of your body on the mattress ... they only move the entire support platform of the adjustable base under the mattress closer to the wall so it only changes the position of the mattress itself relative to the back wall and your bedside table.

I have the LP S-Cape 2.0 and the description states WallHugger. This is why I bought them a couple weeks ago. However their are ones that are actually WallSnugglers. False Advertising. From footboard to full upright movement is 6 1/2 inches and Distance from HeadBoard is almost 8 inches. Real WallHugger should be closer to 12inches movement from footboard and less than 3 inches from head board when fully upright. I have requested a return or replace mine with real WallHugger adjustable beds. I have Spilt King-$900 a piece. I want I am paying for or I will go elsewhere. Bought these from WayFair.

Hi jdeck66,

The Leggett and Platt S-Cape 2.0 in the foundation style or the furniture style does have their Wallhugger feature – it is not false advertising. There is no standardized term of what “Wallhugger” (a Leggett and Platt trademarked term) or “wall saver” or even “wall snuggler” means regarding distance, with the center section usually moving back in the 6” – 8” range.

I’m not sure how you came up with your expected ranges of motion, but those are not “usual” within the industry (as you can see from some of the comments posted earlier in this thread) and with some bases not even possible, as it would cause the head to tilt at too steep of an angle as to be unsafe.

I am shopping right now & have learned that L&P has gone downhill in this area. Apparently they used to travel back 11” but decided to cheap out & go to just 5” back travel. The incline to sit up also looks fairly lacking. This just stopped me from buying the new Prodigy Comfort Elite base. The Prodigy 2.0 is the same. The S-cape is the last model that went back 11” but they also changed this model to be in line with the others. I saw this on a Sleep Essentials video.
