FCE – Functional Capacity Evaluation

A functional capacity assessment is a 4 hour assessment of a person’s ability to perform key functional activities. This type of assessment is requested when an individual has reached a point in their recovery that has reached a maximum medical improvement. This is normally toward the end of a workers’ compensation claim, when a worker is close to returning to work.

Using the Key Method in conjunction with a functional job description or other known return to work demands, this assessment can assist in determining a personas ability to return to work on a functional basis.
