So there she was, sitting in coach class flying from Alaska across the Pacific Ocean to Antarctica, in pain again because her feet could not reach the floor and her legs were dangling off the edge of her seat. This dangling caused pain in her lower back, hips, and lower extremities. Her legs dangled because her popliteal height, the distance from the bottom of her feet to the area behind her knees, is only 15 inches. The average popliteal height in the United States is between 15 - 19.9 inches. Unfortunately, the average chair seat height is between 17 to 19 inches. That’s a two to four inch gap between the average seat height and the average popliteal height.
