I've got my tribunal next Wednesday

I'm so nervous about it as the last time the judge asked me something about my knee brace that I had on at the time, and they asked me to take it off so that they could have a look at it. Not only that they asked me to bring it to the table where they were sat. 
I think they did this to see if I actually needed the knee brace or not?
Is this something that they do quite a lot?

    It makes you wonder if they where checking you out to see if you could manage without brace. I expect many try it on to help their case.

    When I went to my PIP tribunal, I had the same knee brace on as I did then. But what they did then was to say that they wanted to get in touch with the DWP, why do they do something like that?
