Adjustable Power Bed Base FAQ
What is a power base?
The power base replaces the traditional box spring or platform used under an ordinary flat mattress. The power base contains the power lift assembly which allows for hundreds of relaxing positions as well as other comfort features and settings. The mattresses do not elevate, they require a power base to articulate position.
Who is the oldest and most venerated power base manufacturer in the World?
Founded in 1883, Leggett & Platt is made up of 17 business units, 20,000 employee-partners, and 130 facilities in 19 countries. They are known for extreme durability and world class customer service.
Who are the top three power base manufacturers?
We only represent the top tier of power base manufacturers. Quality does not cost, it pays in the long run. Leggett & Platt, Ergomotion and Reverie are the top tier manufacturers in the world for adjustable power bases. Since each manufacturer offers a variety of models and features, we hand pick exactly which models we carry to perfectly balance our power base portfolio for our customers. Our selection advisory board consists of industry experts with over 100 years of combined experience with adjustable bed bases.
Who makes the BEST power base?
The best base for you will vary depending upon your individual needs. All three of our manufacturers produce high quality durable power bases backed by strong warranties each with a distinct manufacturing pedigree. Each manufacturer has a unique niche in the marketplace. We have carefully selected only power bases that are 100% compatible with all Split Top mattresses. Many power bases retract backwards while elevating forcing couples to settle for two twin mattresses pushed together for a King size bed for separate elevation. Our power base models have a stationary base design that allows couples to position each side of their bed separately for both head and feet with all Split Top King or Queen mattresses.
What is the BEST Power base model?
Given that the largest and oldest maker of adjustable beds in the world is Leggett & Platt, the “best” adjustable base is generally regarded by the industry leaders as their Prodigy 2.0 model. However, for those seeking a power base to sit on top of existing platform furniture with drawers the Element from Ergomotion is their best fit. For others, the 6S model from Reverie with head tilt and additional lumbar support and furniture surround aesthetic would be their favorite.
Is there a power base with an app that integrates the power base position controls with the mattress firmness control all on one App?
Yes. Our Reverie bases are 100% compatible with our mattress firmness control system and one unified App provides you with total control of all functions seamlessly.
Which models have a pillow or head tilt?
The Prodigy 2.0 from Leggett & Platt, the Ergomotion Softide 8300 and the Reverie 6S model.
Does any model have an additional lumbar support?
Yes, the Ergomotion 8300 and the Reverie 6S.
Does anyone make a power base that fits on top of a platform bed with drawers?
Yes. Ergomotion’s Element power base is only 3.5” in height and sits on top of your existing platform bed with drawers. The element is also ideal for RV or campers where height is an issue. Only the Element 1 model incorporates a stationary design that is compatible with split top mattresses.
Does anyone make a power base that can be controlled from an App?
Yes. All three of our manufacturers carry power bases that may be operated from an App. Please see a sales educator for exact models and features.
How do the power bases compare in price among the three major power base manufacturers?
We have selected three power base models from each manufacturer. We have selected a mid-level, premium level and ultra-premium level bases from each manufacturer. We do not carry entry level model bases with wired remote controls, head only lift or those with a “folding table” power base design & appearance. We have negotiated special pricing to be able to offer the same price from all three manufacturers for the same class of power bases. With us you have 9 unique power base models, from 3 world class manufacturers to make the best buying decision for your requirements. See our Sales Educator for our current bundled packages to maximize your savings.

Can I use my existing bedroom furniture?
Yes. All same size furniture can be used. The Element Power Base model actually sits directly on top of the existing slats and can be used with platform beds with under bed drawers. Other models have steel legs that drop inside the decorative bed frame to support the power bed.
Are Split Top Sheets expensive?
Not really when compared to split king sheet sets comprised of two twin fitted bottoms and one solid top sheet. We have Gotcha Covered fitted bottom 310 tc single ply cotton sheets for a Split Head mattress for only $99. Or upgrade to a modern-day sheet for a modern-day adjustable power bed with Dream Fit sheets. Dream Fit sheets are guaranteed to fit and guaranteed to stay on. Two sets of sheets will last 8 years under normal conditions. A very small investment to help ensure your long-term satisfaction.
What determines exactly which model power bases are carried by Relax In Comfort?
Our loyalty is to our customers not our vendors. For over 50 years we research the industry trade shows to find the best quality power bases with the best overall value for every power base we carry. Since over 95% of all couples select a Split Top mattress, we generally only offer a stationary power base which does not retract the feet backwards while elevating the head.
What is the Limited-Edition model base?
Our Limited-Edition power base provides for individual elevation of both the head and foot sections paired with a wireless remote control. The Limited Edition is made by Leggett & Platt and boasts a high end 4” aesthetic surround.
Which power bases will work with a Split Top mattress?
All of our models are compatible with all Split Head mattresses. All our bases are a NON-wall- hugger design- the foot section does NOT retract backwards while elevating the head section. Wall Hugger bases are ONLY compatible when two twin mattresses are pushed together to comprise a split king size bed. This creates a split down the entire bed and requires special order Twin XL fitted bottom sheets.
Is there an extended protection plan available for power bases?
Yes. We offer a ten-year parts and labor extended protection plan for $500 available at time of purchase only. The plan will cover any amount of power bases up to $20,000 in value on the same invoice. (See plan document for plan details and limitations)
Is my purchase sales tax exempt if prescribed by my doctor?
Yes. The Florida Department of Revenue has exempted state sales tax otherwise due when prescribed by a doctor as medically necessary. Only the named item is exempt. All accessory items must be taxed at their actual selling price. The RX must meet the criteria as established by the DOR. A valid RX MUST be presented BEFORE delivery is made.
Is there an in-home trial for any power bases?
No. The Power Bases offer hundreds of relaxing positions including Zero Gravity, TV, anti-snore, sleep and flat. Your sleep surface comfort is primarily dependent upon the mattress selected. The Power Base simply adds hundreds of possible positions to the mattress. Our mattresses are changeable over time and the firmness may be personalized for each sleep partner at any time ensuring a lifetime of rest and comfort.
Do you ship out of state?
Yes. We offer free curbside drop off shipping direct from the manufacturer. This option is only for the do it your selfer. No assistance is provided for set up or any help to carry inside. Full service In home set up is available for an additional fee, generally $450 to most areas of the contiguous USA. Remote areas have surcharge fees charged by the freight companies. However, there is no Florida state sales tax charged on any out of state factory direct shipments often saving more than the cost of in home set up!
