Functional Capacity Evaluation
Functional capacity evaluations are performed by an Occupational Therapist or a Physical Therapist with advanced training. These tests compare an individual's ability to perform tasks and the essential, physical demands of a specific job or other possible jobs.
These assessments help an individual, an employer or an attorney determine if a person:
- Can safely and successfully return to work
- Requires rehabilitation
- Requires work hardening and work conditioning to improve specific, essential physical and/or cognitive abilities.
FCEs are scheduled individually.
Because of the extended amount of time that must be allotted for any FCE, cancelations must be made one week in advance.
