WHEELED INFANT CARRIAGE OR CRIB WITH DRIVEN MEANS FORRECIPROCATING IT LONGITUDINALLY:
(under the class definition) Apparatus comprising a vehicle of the kind used for resting or transporting an infant, and motor means for moving the vehicle back and forth in a direction parallel to its longitudinal axis.
(1) Note. The purpose of the movement is to quiet or relax the infant, induce it to sleep, etc. To further promote such relaxation, etc., it is not uncommon to also provide means for rocking the infant supporting portion of the vehicle relative to the remainder thereof.
(2) Note. A vehicle of this subclass is propelled manually when being utilized to transport the infant, and, from that standpoint, is a vehicle for Class 280. However, the presence of a motor means, which means propels the vehicle in its direction of travel, albeit to a limited extent, is considered to make this class (180) the more appropriate locus.
