Functional Capacity Evaluation

The Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive series of performance-based tests that help objectively measure an injured person’s physical abilities related to work or daily living. Measurements of function from an FCE are used to make return-to-work (activity) decisions, level of disability determinations or to design rehabilitation plans.
