I tore my achilles tendon and will need something to hobble around on until I am fully healed. So instead of going for the cheesy old-people canes, I wanted to make myself something more befitting a MakerPimp. What I think is cool about this idea is that you can customize it to your tastes, and change it around depending on your mood or style.
The core is a generic 8mm or 5/16 threaded rod, cut to proper length. The "beads" that go on the rod are varying lengths, so that proper sizing can be achieved by a mix of different ones. And you can mix and match colors.
Skull head is from (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:163311)
First-draft handle was from Sconine's design (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11272), which works also.
If the default "cane beads" are too tight on the threaded rod, try the "105" version which is scaled up a little bit.
If anyone from Thingiverse is reading this, I believe a category for "accessibility" is in order, because there's a lot of great ideas here for people with disabilities. So we don't have to label it as a "fashion accessory"
Print a handle and a foot, and however many plates of "beads" you need. Each plate is good for 50cm, normally 2 plates will suffice.
Proper cane measurement is, with you standing upright and arms hanging loosely at your sides, from the floor to the crook between your thumb and palm.
The foot adds 1cm to the end of the threaded rod, the handle will vary so measure its hole depth, and count these in your measurements when cutting the rod.
