Seats and methods for controlling a seat are described. A position of the users leg is sensed relative to the position of the front of the seat. A determination is made as to if the position of the users leg from a front of the seat is greater than a gap minimum. If the gap is greater than the gap minimum, a cushion length extender portion of the seat is moved until the sensed position is less than or equal to the gap minimum. In an example, the remainder of seat base is held in a fixed position within the vehicle environment. The gap minimum can be with the cushion length extender portion in slight contact with the users leg. The sensor can be at a front face of seat. The sensor can be on the cushion length extender portion of the seat.
