A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) provides objective information about an individual’s ability to dependably perform work tasks and activities of daily living. Standardized measures of consistency of effort and symptom reports are incorporated into the assessment. Our clinical protocols are based upon research with a best-practices approach, using the Matheson system of evaluation.
Evaluations are performed by an Occupational Therapist and may be conducted over 1 or 2 days. The FCE includes a comprehensive report that provides specific and individualized recommendations in the following areas: return to work status, rehabilitation potential, ergonomic equipment needs, work site and work practice modifications, and other treatment requirements.
