Functional Capacity Evaluation

  • A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) provides a comprehensive evaluation that measures strength, endurance, physical demand work level and positional tolerance. The data gathered through this evaluation objectively defines the injured employee's physical capabilities.

    The FCE is an important tool used to assist employers, physicians, insurance companies, attorneys, case managers and vocational consultants to determine safe, functional levels for an individual to either return to work or to establish functional ability. The evaluation assists referral sources by offering information for adjudication of claims in short/long-term disability, provides return-to-work capabilities and determines ability levels for liability cases using appropriate medical standards.

    The WorkStrategies® FCE Program features:

    • Standardized functional testing protocols
    • Peer review research
    • National network
    • Certified FCE evaluators
    • Quality assurance monitoring
