Wrap: Ok to get out of the cam boot for sleeping, but should consider wearing it if you have to ambulate over to the bathroom at night.

Most can: Remove the walking boot to sleep as long as its immobilized and anytime you get up you must put the cam walker back on and do not walk without it or risk for failed healing.
