Image Number 7 for United States Patent #7475942.
The child receiving device includes a seat, seat suspension arms for supporting the seat portion, and a support frame for supporting the seat suspension arms and the seat above a supporting surface. Two front seat suspension arms are pivotally connected at their lower ends to opposite front ends of the seat and two rear seat suspension arms are pivotally connected at their lower ends to opposite rear ends of the seat. The support frame includes a suspension guide, the upper ends of the front and rear seat suspension arms being pivotally connected to the suspension guide. The suspension guide includes a slot along which the upper ends of the front seat suspension arms may be moved toward and away from the upper ends of the rear seat suspension arms. The distance between the upper ends of the front seat suspension arms and the upper ends of the rear seat suspension arms is adjustable to convert the child receiving between a swing configuration (providing a traditional arcuate swinging motion to the child seat) and a glider configuration (providing a front-to-back, quasi-linear, translational movement to the child seat).
