An FCE, or functional capacity evaluation, is defined as a set of tests and observations completed in an effort to determine if an individual can meet certain demands – most often these demands are employment related. They are useful in a variety of circumstances and may, at times, even be required.
They are utilized by employers in relation to workers compensation claims to determine if an employee is able to return to work and can be used to determine the disability status of an individual. Whatever the reason might be for you to need a functional capacity evaluation, rest assured that you have come to the right place.
