Bridge the Gap Between Impairment & Employability

Functional Capacity Evaluations are provided to assess and document injured and/or disabled persons’ current functional capacities and limitations. Throughout the evaluation, attention is also directed at assessing a person’s pain tolerances and responses, consistency of effort, and how they complete specific tasks.

The Functional Capacity Assessment

FCE bridges the gap between medical evidence pertaining to the impairment and vocational findings related to employability, which also sets the foundation for an economist’s earning capacity report. We assess:

  • Mobility
  • Strength
  • Sensibility
  • Sitting & standing tolerances
  • Abilities to lift & carry
  • Coordinated hand usage/dexterity
  • Abilities to perform specific vocational tasks
  • Abilities to engage in sustained activity
