A Functional Capacity Evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of a person's ability to conduct activities of daily living and/or work. This standardized system is most frequently used to assess work-related injuries and helps determine the level of disability, rehabilitation needs and when the individual will be capable of returning to normal activity or work.
This physical assessment includes:
- Strength activities such as lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling
- Position tolerance activities such as standing or sitting
- Mobility activities such as walking or climbing
A functional capacity evaluation documents specific measures for balance, coordination, cardiovascular conditioning, body mechanics, strength, flexiblity and pain.
