Just heard about this one. Did a 20 minute take yesterday followed by a 15 minute take, both at 15' extension, with no support. This is how this director and this actor roll, and while it is killing me physically, I want to respect the actor's process. Anyone have experience with the Uperator?

The device you linked to looks like a modified rifle support monopod.  I do something similar with a modified inexpensive monopod.  I go to the ground though, I don't use it at my waist.  Its great for on the fly interviews that go on for a long time.  If you don't have to move too much that might help.  Or it looks like it would be simple to rig up some sort of strap for the monopod I use.
