What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation?

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive, objective test of an individual’s ability to perform work-related and functional tasks.  The FCE is an integral part of the return to work process for work-related injuries.

Safe, reliable, valid, and useful in identifying the following:

  • Return to work safety and time frames
  • Job task modifications
  • Evaluation of an appropriate entry point in a work rehab program
  • Disability

Please note, an FCE is ideal for primary care doctors to assist in decisions related to work restrictions and/or the return to work process.
