Functional Capacity Evaluation and How long does the assessment take to complete?

 A Functional Capacity Evaluation
(“FCE”) involves a battery of objective of tests and
observations to evaluate your physical ability to
function in different tasks. The final report can help
demonstrate what you activities you can safely
perform.

How long does it take?

The tests can take several hours or may be performed
over two consecutive days. The length of time is
dependent on your injury and your job. The tests
should not injury you, if you feel pain you should report
this to the evaluator. You can stop at a test at any
time for any reason. Your safety is a primary concern
of the evaluator, they will closely observe you during
the FCE and stop the tests if they feel you are at a risk
of harm.

Once you have completed the tests you can go home
