Professor Greg Whyte dons a suit specially designed to simulate the pain and discomfort experienced by osteoarthritis sufferers. Constrained by tight straps and with ball bearings digging into his hands, neck and ankles he endures a day away from home culminating in a domestic assault course at Wembley Stadium. He learns too that the stress caused by such prolonged pain can have far-reaching consequences.
