I'm not an expert, but no one else is jumping in. It seems like there are four stages:

1) Doing handstand hold
2) Doing small pushups
3) Doing full pushups
4) Doing unsupported full pushups.

I think each builds on the previous. If you can do a hold at all, practice that, and over time work in small pushups, and gradually increase the amplitude (do against a wall, of course.).

If you can't do hold, do standing barbell overhead presses to build your strength, until you can do a hold. That seems simpler than a contraption.
