Functional capacity evaluation

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is an assessment of your current work abilities. This evaluation is more lengthy and thorough. An occupational therapist or a physical therapist, completes the FCE. The FCE answers questions related to employment planning or returning to a specific job. You may need an FCE due to your physical or cognitive abilities. The FCE consists of:

  • Ability testing
  • An interview
  • Physical screening
  • Work simulation, if appropriate

Safety, reliability, and validity are key components of this assessment.

  • Acquiring a new wheelchair
  • Modifying your existing wheelchair
  • Replacing your worn wheelchair
