Functional Capacity Evaluation
According to Matheson, "Functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is a systematic method of measuring an individual's ability to perform meaningful tasks on a safe and dependable basis. FCE includes all impairments, not just those that result in physical functional limitations. In general, the purpose of FCE is to collect information about the functional limitations of a person with medical impairment." As Matheson trained evaluators, we focus on answering the referral source's questions by using evidence based tools and producing a final report that will move the case along the system.
