FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATIONS

FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATIONS

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is a set of tests, practices and observations that are combined to determine the ability of the evaluated to function in a variety of circumstances, most often employment, in an objective manner.  The test can be beneficial in determining an injured worker's capabilities and restrictions in trying to assess need for therapy intervention or determining the patient's ability to return to a specific job duty.  A test usually takes around 3 hours to complete.
