Using state-of-the-art equipment, the Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) provides objective information regarding the work abilities of an individual, while simultaneously assessing the status of their disability. Individual assessments last approximately four hours and focus on various parameters including strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, cardiovascular condition and body mechanics.
Our FCEs are designed to provide valuable information to employers, insurance companies and case managers, ultimately resulting in significant cost savings for medical expenses and indemnity.
With a data driven, results oriented process, Advantage OT provides:
- Supporting information for return-to-work actions
- Supporting medical evidence
- Worker empowerment
- Education to patients that differentiates pain and function.
Referral sources should expect that, as part of the Functional Capacity Evaluation, Advantage OT may assist in setting goals and treatment planning, matching job demands with physical capabilities, providing pre-employment information and determining case closure.
In addition to Functional Capacity Evaluations, Advantage offers several state-of-the art occupational therapy programs designed to restore function and get our patients back to work and back to life as quickly and successfully as possible.
