A Functional Capacity Evaluation [FCE] determines an individual’s physical abilities to perform work. The evaluations measure strength and endurance to predict the overall capability of the individual.
Validity and Consistency of Effort is established during every evaluation.
We utilize the Matheson System of Functional Capacity Evaluations due to the extensive research that supports the data collected during testing. This comprehensive evaluation takes at least six-eight hours to administer and produces an approximate 40-page report.
- Provides reliable and reproducible evidence about an employee’s ability to perform job tasks
- Determines the consistency of effort and reliability of subjective reports
- Identifies appropriate recommendations for job modifications or job change, as applicable
ABBREVIATED or ‘Mini’ FCE
This FCE is a much more ‘cost friendly’ evaluation which integrates a Comprehensive Physical Therapy Evaluation by a Specialist Physical Therapist with an Essential Functions Test [EFT].
The result provides concise medical assessment combined with job specific or, as desired, more general functional capacity. It takes about four hours to administer and generates an approximate seven page report.
