Functional Capacity Evaluations
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a
comprehensive evaluation of objective information
on strength, flexibility, endurance, balance,
coordination and body mechanics to establish what
the worker can safely perform. This evaluation will
last 3-5 hours. Typically, the FCE results are
compared to the duties listed on the worker's Job
Description to see if a match is made. A report is
sent to the referring physican who will use this data
to determine a return-to-work plan.
