Our N Scale club for many years used N-Trak layouts at train shows.  One of the ongoing problems was the amount of time it took to level the layout and the fact that you had to get down on the floor to adjust the leveling bolts.

We switched to T-Trak for the shows because one could stand or sit in a chair to level the modules.

Has anyone come up with a leg system for N-Trak modules that can be leveled while standing or sitting in a chair?

Something like those shower curtain rods that you twist to shorten/lengthen should work.Jose.

Here's something I've tried myself.
You need two persons to handle it properly, though. Also, fastening to the module must be by a sort of clamping. Do not rely on the threaded head - it will not withstand any shearing forces and give way, sending your module to the floor.
