Harmonic Resolution Systems (HRS) Damping Plates work well with parasitic vibration control.

Heavy brass footers like the "fat bastards" that were made by Edensound an Agoner. I don't know if he still makes them. If you use the heavy footers on a platform that itself rests on viscoelastic foam or has dynamat affixed to it the dampening improves.
In addition you can use any heavy solid weight on top with similar effect. Mapleshade and Walker Audio makes Valid points and various brass pucks and such for the purpose.
I find that dampening actually has a very favorable effect on my gear. I have heard overdamped speakers however so I do know it can kill the sound if overdone.
With the various solutions available and the DIY aspect of it you can apply as much or as little as you need.
That moon gel pad looks like a softer version of the Sorbothane footers by Herbies. The Older Sorbothane footers can support a piece of equipment. These moon gels can only be applied to the surface. As you say they look like a useful accessory especially for a real world price but I think you will need additional materials.
Agree with Dob.
Each of these footers/tables have a different presentation. Then placement of the devices on top can differ in sound if moved around.
Hence I found the Silent Running Audio shelves the most effective. No need for other tweaks after you place the unit on its own feet.
The SRA's have different levels and I found their Ohio Class Plus Square on my EMM gear so effective that it ended my search for anything more (except probably Halcyonics-where we are talking a different dollar value)
Hope that helps.
