What Is A Functional Capacity Evaluation?


Clear, Objective, & Concise Data About Your Physical Condition

Whether at work or on the field, the risk for injury will always be there.

If you find yourself injured and unsure if you’ll be able to return to work you’ll need an FCE. These evaluations measure various facets of your ability, such as how long you’re able to sit or stand without experiencing any pain. Data is collected and sent back to your employer or disability manager.

The legality of collecting disability or returning to modified duties can be tricky. It is for that reason that functional capacity evaluations can take a number of different routes. All of which provide valid, definsible information that can be used in case of personal injury. Assessments are conducted using the most up to date standards and technology available.
