A supporting assembly is pivotally mounted to the underside of the seat assembly. The supporting assembly includes a pivotally mounted frame member and a leg member mounted at a predetermined angle that is slightly greater than ninety degrees to prevent the leg member from slipping back towards the seat assembly when load is applied to the latter.
