Functional Capacity Evaluations
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a series of tests that are used to identify a person’s physical skills, functional capabilities, activity endurance, and work tolerances. This test is usually a 3-to 4-hour evaluation that is performed by an occupational or physical therapist.
FCE’s are used to determine if a patient can safely perform the duties of a specific job, provide recommendations on their ability to return to work and if they may need accommodations to safely return to work.
FCE’s also give a baseline for work conditioning programs or provide more data for physicians to determine disability.
