WHAT IS AN FCE


The Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive series of performance-based tests that help objectively measure injured employees' physical abilities. The tests gauge physical strength, range of motion, stamina, and tolerance of functional activities, including pushing, pulling, lifting, and carrying.


Through the FCE, Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers' well-trained, professional staff identifies safe work performance abilities. This process helps determine the necessity for work restrictions (if any) and options for return-to-work.
