Bed Without the Boot
In order to keep the foot in the pointed-down position whilst asleep, after removing the boot at night I wrap a scarf around my lower leg and foot, which I then secure using tape. I then pull a thick bandage sock (the same type as that given to me to wear with the boot) over it. I also make sure the over-sheet is fairly loose at the bottom of the bed, in order to allow the feet room to move around. I don't use just a duvet but a combination of sheet and duvet, as I hate getting wrapped up in them or having them slide off me when I sleep.
