    I changed forks and got 5'' casters, and now my STF is 19''. But my seat pan to footrest is 17'', same as you Patrick.

    My question is do your thighs firmly sit on the cushion? Seems like your thighs wouldn't be bearing much weight, being as you're 3 inches taller than me, and have the same measurement from seat pan to footrest that I do.

    If I go any shorter on seat pan to footrest, my thighs don't take hardly any of my weight...leading I believe to more pressure on my ischials, leading to a red butt where my pressure sore healed.

    Unless I have freakishly long lower legs, which I don't believe is true

    Hey RDF, I use a hard foam cushion. I can slide my hands under my thighs with a little effort. They rest on the length of the cushion with out distortion and not gaps. What type of cushion are ou using? If you do change the length, make sure to check the bum. Hope that helps.

    How are the 5" casters? They should help with the clearance from fooplate to floor.

    Patrick I'm using a Jay2.

    I think I'll stay with a 16by16 after reading your comments, and those of John and others. Yes the 5'' inch casters help a little with the clearance.

    What do you mean by 'without distortion and not gaps' regarding your thighs on the cushion?

    No indentation of the thighs due to being too low on the cushion.

    Hmmm mine is pretty tight. We have the same chair and same car - so maybe its my technique.
