Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)

The Functional Capacity Evaluation is a comprehensive, performance-based, objective assessment of an individual’s ability to perform functional tasks consistent with the physical demands of work activity. Completion of this 3-4 hour test will allow the evaluator to make predictions about the employee’s ability to return to an 8-hour day. It is recommended that the FCE be scheduled after the applicant has completed traditional therapy, reached maximum medical improvement and been determined by the physician to be physically fit for this type of testing.
