FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATION

  • We conduct a series of standardized tests to give an objective assessment of a worker’s functional capacities for work.

  • We aim to collect information on the functional limitations of a individual with medical impairments

  • We use FCE to determine a worker’s abilities over a variety of physical demands to facilitate his or her functional recovery.

  • In evaluating FCE, the following are used: questionnaires, simulated and real work, and standardized tests

  • A standard FCE lasts from several hours to two days, depending on the scope of evaluation done. It usually measures the patient’s strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, body mechanics and cardiovascular condition.
