  • Publication number: 20190274448
    Abstract: A child support device (200) includes a seat (204) and a panel (208) included in or adjacent to the seat. The panel includes a first panel portion (212) including a panel edge (216) defining a panel opening. The first panel portion has a first heat transfer coefficient. A location of the panel opening corresponds to a heat transfer region in which an expected heat received from a child in the seat is greater than a heat reception threshold, A second panel portion is in the panel opening and attached to the panel edge. The second panel portion includes a layered mesh having a second heat transfer coefficient greater than the first heat transfer coefficient and greater than a threshold heat transfer coefficient at which a temperature of the second panel portion while receiving the expected heat is greater than a room temperature by less than a threshold difference, wherein the threshold difference is at most five degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Patent number: 9693639
    Abstract: A child-supporting device including a child-seat assembly mounted to and supported by a rocker frame assembly. The seat assembly includes a backrest, a footrest, or both, pivotably adjustable between reclined and inclined positions. A recline adjustment mechanism is operable to selectively lock the seat in the reclined or inclined position for use, then release the seat for pivotal adjustment to the other position. In some embodiments, a linkage interconnects the backrest and the footrest so that pivoting one of them synchronously pivots the other one. And in some embodiments, the footrest is detachable and a quick connect/disconnect mechanism is provided that permits operation of the recline adjustment mechanism when the footrest is attached.

  • Publication number: 20160309913
    Abstract: An infant bed includes multiple base panels and multiple side and end panels extending therefrom, with the side and end panels typically including removable boards. Each of these panels is connected to adjacent of the panels along respective fold lines that enable the adjacent panels to be folded over on each other. By folding the panels in various ways, they can be converted from a flat configuration for use as an infant play mat to a receptacle configuration for use as an infant bed and/or to a collapsed configuration for transport. Various attachments, flaps, and/or other features can be included for securing the panels in the bed and/or transport configurations, and handles can be included for carrying the bed in the transport configuration. Also, the bed can be nested within a bassinet for use, and upon removal of the bed the bassinet can be collapsed to a transport configuration.
