    I have a tapered front end, and I can stand (have some leg strength/feeling/control). Next chair, I'll order a V front. When I lean back against a wall to rest, the bump in the tapered front is uncomfortable under my calves. But I've never had a V front, so I don't know if there may be something I don't like about it.

        ive had both, currently v-front, and ill stick with it. looks neater, more streamlined, frame bars follow my legs instead of highlighting them. and i agree with what chas said about how the taper can cause extra pressure (i have full sensation so its obvious to me too)

          I have a tapered front end and like it. Keeps my legs from splaying:



          Don't have sensation so don't feel any pressure.

            What keep your legs from splaying is having a correct width of footplate, so don`t worry if is tapered or V, i prefer V fronts.

              Yeah, you are probably right. I like the way the taper looks better then the V, how is that for a reason

                  She does! Your mom has a FSH of 0 and a RSH of 16 whenever I see her...

                      seems the v would get into tighter places though correct and im thinin the v would be better on the legs rubbing the tapered frame

                        I have a tapered frame and I like it. I currently hang my left leg over the frame most of the time due to knee pain. The taper and placement of my caster wing is perfect for me lol. Though I'm hoping I won't always be doing so because I'm a bit worried of it causing issues years down the line like exacerbating my back from sitting uneven.

                            will the v help keep my legs from rubbing the frame
                            does the v give more inbetween room for transfering

                              It's having correct height, more so than width of footplate.
