Functional Capacity Evaluation Testing
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) consists of a series of tests conducted by our specialized FCT machine under the supervision of our certified physical therapist and Medical Director, which determines the functional ability of an injured worker to return to work. An FCE can also be used to help identify changes to employee workload, or modifications to working conditions such as ergonomic measures, that the employer may be able to undertake in an effort to accommodate an employee with a disability or medical condition. FCEs may be required by law for some employers before an employee can return to work, as well as by insurers before insurance payments can be made. FCEs are also used to determine eligibility for disability insurance, or pension eligibility in the event that an employee is permanently unable to return to work.
