Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)


Functional capacity evaluation (FCE)  is often used to assess a worker’s functional ability relevant to a specific job role.

This is used to help understand if the worker is safe to perform the job role and whether there may be any risks involved.

Following the assessment, a report is completed and this involves classifying the worker as low or high risk of injury.


Some of the areas of assessment include:


  • Joint range of motion


  • Muscular Strength


  • Cardiovascular Fitness


  • Balance


  • Neurodynamics


  • Manual Handling Capacity
