Functional Capacity Evaluations
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a physical test designed to measure an injured worker’s abilities. We then match those abilities to the specific tasks of a certain job. This is accomplished by having a worker perform various activities that simulate on-the-job work. The FCE, which combines the highest level of safety with objective findings, is a significant aid in developing an effective return-to-work program for an injured worker.
- Assessments are designed to provide information that helps get people back to work quickly and safely.
- The program focuses on ability rather than disability.
- Therapists provide information to help injured workers discover which activities they can perform safely and which they must avoid.
