Functional Capacity Evaluation

Did you sustain a work injury or accident and want to know if you are fit and safe to return to occupational activities?  Functional capacity evaluation can be used to provide a comprehensive assessment, suggestions, and interpretation following an injury or accident that occurred while at work before returning.

When you fall victim to work-related incidents, certain limitations may happen, which can affect your performance or productivity at work. In most cases, you need to stay off work to recover. Once the recovery process is completed, you may be required to undergo a functional capacity evaluation before resuming at your workplace.

What’s functional capacity evaluation (FCE)?

Functional capacity evaluation is a comprehensive physical and functional capacity evaluation using standard guidelines and measurable tests. This evaluation helps to interpret the current conditions of your body after sustaining work injury/accident before submitting it to interested parties Or filling out a functional abilities form.

What is the importance of a functional capacity evaluation?

The major importance of FAE is to determine the capacity of the level of work you can perform after recovering from injury or accident. Every injury or accident has a different level of damage it can cause to your health and productivity. For some people, work injuries/accidents can cause lots of damage, making them incapable of returning to work and doing normal daily activities. Through functional capacity evaluation, your working ability can be determined, and any possible risk that might occur following your return to normal work will be clearly stated.

Functional capacity evaluation is used to identify any negative side effects such as disabilities or impairments and how your productivity may be affected when returning partially or fully to work duties. Furthermore, FCE also identifies job limitations that shouldn’t be trespassed to protect your current health and prevent any possibility of injury sooner or later.
