Woodsmithshop, you’ve brought up what i think is the biggest thing to address.
You may not need to stand up completely. Just take up your body weight with your legs. I agree this could be too much to ask the user to repeat for very long.
But that’s for a version of the design concept where one’s weight is (the seat is) far forward of where the rear support holds up the Giraffe. How about if we move that forward to be directly under, or nearly under the seating position. Maybe even resting on a see-saw point – something much like a saw horse with an apex. Then a slight shift of ones weight backward (rolling on ones bum, so no standing up required) would release any clamping force. Maybe even counter the clamping that’s a result of the mass of the Giraffe?
