FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATION:
This test provides information about the physical capabilities of an employee. It is an examination to determine an employee’s maximum physical performance in a controlled, safe environment. It incorporates the elements of posture, body movements, kinesiology, cardiovascular response, metabolic changes, affective and psychomotor response to provide a detailed report of a person's functional capabilities and limitations. This detailed information is then utilized to determine return-to-work status, and formulate specific solutions to address concerns and improve or restore function.
