13 Invention Summary The Bath Cloud is a form of a bath mat manipulated into a small cushiony lounge chair that fits at the back of a standard full shower. Renee

14 The mat can also be used in an individual shower as a chair or can also be used in a spa. It is a compact device to avoid the need of storage and can be left in the tub at all times for future use. Renee

15 The device is lined in all-cotton terry cloth to keep one from slipping and has small suctions to adhere to the sides of the tub to hold device in desired position. Renee

16 The Cloud has a contoured surface to snug the body’s natural curves and an adjustable pillow for neck and head support so it will fill like an oversized pillow. Renee

17 The Cloud is stuffed with a fluffy poly-fiber filling that avoids inflating and deflating the device so the mat is always ready for use. The thickness of the mat is 3” to allow easy folding and transporting for travel purposes.
