To more clearly illustrate the principles of the present invention, reference is made to FIG. 3, which illustrates a perspective view of infant activity center 300. With further reference to the functional embodiment of FIG. 1, infant activity center 300 can be described in terms of a first section and a second section. Here, the first section includes bouncer support frame 310, which supports seating surface 312. When an infant is supported by seating surface 312, the infant's legs are positioned relative to foot actuator section 314. The second section includes activity bar 320, which further includes various infant entertainment components. Activity bar 320 is coupled to bouncer support frame 310 via retainer elements 332 and 334. As will be described in greater detail below, retainer element 334 includes a communication link that enables communication between foot actuator section 314 and an electronic control unit disposed in activity bar 320.
FIG. 4 is a perspective view of infant activity center 300 with seating surface 312 removed. As illustrated, infant activity center 300 includes a bouncer support frame including base section 412, leg support section 414, and back support section 416. The combination of back support section 416 and leg support section 414 enables infant activity center 300 to support an infant in a partially reclined posture. As will become apparent from the following description, the concepts of the present invention can be applied to any modular or integrated infant support structure.
