Functional Capacity Evaluations are an invaluable tool used to objectively measure a person’s physical abilities when they are beginning or returning to activities following an injury or illness.
Our exams take the guess work out of determining whether someone is ready to return to a previous job by:
- Establishing a safe level of work intensity for injured workers
- Identifying impairments limiting function
- Identifying possible interventions to optimize function
- Identifying inconsistent test effort, or functional limitations not caused by allowed conditions.
Our FCE reports provide a concise summary of the evaluee’s level of physical abilities, with objective measurements of many functional activities.
We use validated test protocols to perform comprehensive evaluations, or modify the exams to perform job specific FCE’s.
If needed, our exams can also be performed on-site to more accurately measure performance on specific job duties.
