Functional Capacity Evaluations

 

 

 

At DPT, we help our patients get better, faster. That means safely and appropriately returning to work more quickly. The FCE, Functional Capacity Evaluation, using OccuPro allows us to do just that.

 

What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation?

 
The FCE is a ~4 hour validity test that is performed on an injured worker. The purpose of this test is to determine their current physical ability to work. The test includes reliability and effort testing to ensure the most objective and thorough assessment. 

 

The FCE can help to determine the injured worker’s physical demand level and their ability to work with or without restrictions. If there are any conflicting medical reports outlining the injured worker’s ability to complete their duties, the FCE can help solve through its objective reliability and validity factors.
