A FCE’s primary purpose is to determine individual’s functional abilities and limitations in the context of a safe environment while focusing on productive work tasks.

The service we provide is a valuable tool in assessing employees’ safe work abilities and /or establishing baseline abilities for disability evaluation.

Our FCE correlates a client’s functional abilities to the essential physical demands of their job to determine whether they meet these physical demands.

Consistency of effort and reliability of pain ratings are important elements of our evaluations, which is why over 70 separate criteria throughout the FCE help determine if a client is putting forth consistent effort and whether their subjective pain rating is reliable.

Additionally, the Functional Capacity Evaluation testing method we use has consistently stood up in a court of law with reliability and validity research to support the testing method.
