FCE: Functional Capacity Evaluations
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) are used by therapists to determine overall patient ability and project what level of recovery they will be able to achieve in the future. The FCE process incorporates perceived levels of function, actual abilities, and examining aspects such as effort, competitive test performance, and cross-referencing them to specific job descriptions and titles. This comprehensive test can be used before hiring an individual to determine if the potential employee can physically perform the job requirements or following an injury to maximize employee’s abilities.
