She isn’t able to use any kind of soft foam or pillow type stuff or the unit will overheat. Laptops need air circulation underneath them to stay cool. I did find these cooling pads on Amazon with several fans in them for use while using them in your lap. I’m thinking that I could then put a soft foam under the cooling pad to provide the shock absorption and stability needed? Not sure if this will work or not. I will keep researching it. The idea on commercial vibration dampening did provide some ideas on types of materials that may work.
