Functional Capacity Evaluations

Our functional capacity & work tolerance assessments are generally 5 to 7 hours in duration and include a comprehensive analysis of the testing data detailing functional work tolerance, opinion, recommendations, and competitive employability according to the National Occupational Classification Descriptor Work Profile. Testing is structured to corroborate the effects of injury, existing pathology, or illness and includes measurement of competitive performance and multiple validities, consistency, and effort profiling through baseline and repeat tests, Isometric hand dynamometry, heart rate response, and multiple Method Time Measurement (MTM) protocols.

Reliability of perceived tolerance is cross referenced between various pain inventories, the Spinal / Hand Function Sort, and demonstrated function. Physical tolerance charting provides a comparative analysis between demonstrated function and the National Classification Index and the National Labour Market occupational descriptor profile.
