What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)?

A functional capacity evaluation or examination is an objective tool for determining what job duties you are capable or not capable of doing. Our FCE is a peer reviewed and evidence based test, meaning it is thoroughly researched by our peers in the field of occupational medicine and ergonomics.

An FCE is based on the U.S. Government's Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT). It is a special medical and legal tool used by your physician, insurance company, attorney and employer to determine what you are safely and physically capable of doing at work.

It can be performed prior to employment to determine if you are qualified for a specific job or it can be performed after you are injured at work to determine if you are safe to return. It is a test that can sometimes last up to four hours.
