Functional Capacity Evaluation

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive evaluation of functional movements, abilities, and tolerances.  The evaluation process typically requires 3 to 4 hours and includes:

 

-          Medical and Vocational History Interview

-          Subjective Review of Symptoms and Functional Abilities, Pain, and Tolerances

-          Comprehensive Musculoskeletal Evaluation

-          Cardiovascular Endurance Testing

-          Positional Tolerance Testing

-          Dexterity and Manipulation Testing

-          Material Handling Abilities for Lifting, Carrying, and Pushing/Pulling

-          Work Specific Tasks 

 

A Baseline FCE can be completed to identify baseline abilities/limitations for the purpose of determining further rehabilitation needs, employment or disability decisions, or litigation purposes.

 

In addition to completing a basic assessment of a client, a Job-Specific FCE can be designed to determine a client’s ability to safely complete specific job demands and provide information relative to a client’s ability to return to work, including any recommended modifications or additional services or support that may be required in the workplace.
