How to prepare for your functional capacity evaluation

What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)?

This is a comprehensive evaluation designed to determine your tolerance and physical abilities to perform your required job demands or to test your overall functional abilities at this time. You have the right to stop any test during this evaluation however the medical tester will be looking for your maximum effort during testing. This test requires participation in strenuous physical tasks.
