Functional Capacity Evaluation

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is a set of tests that are combined to determine the ability to function in a variety of circumstances, most often employment, in an objective manner. Functional testing may include graded material-handling activities such as lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling; and positional tolerance activities such as sitting, standing, walking, balancing, reaching, stooping, kneeling, crouching, crawling, object handling/manipulation, fingering, hand grasping, and hand manipulation. Pain monitoring is frequently performed during the FCE. The FCE report includes an overall physical demand level, a summary of job-specific physical abilities, a summary of performance consistency and overall voluntary effort, job match information, adaptations to enhance performance, and treatment recommendations.
