Functional Capacity Evaluations
A functional capacity evaluation objectively measures an individual’s baseline abilities; this assists doctors, insurance companies, and employers in determining a person’s potential to return to the workforce after injury; or their overall disability rating.
This program is designed to simulate the specific physical requirements of each worker in order to increase their strength and endurance, assisting their return to full duty on the job. Each program and set of exercises is monitored, incrementally adjusted, and reported electronically to ensure accurate assessment of the employee’s growing capabilities.
Post Offer Employment Tests
A Post Offer Employment Test or POET is a functional capabilities test in which an employee’s physical abilities-including lifting, strength, dexterity and positional tolerances-is measured. This information allows employers to successfully place the employee in a job best suited to their physical abilities from the first day of employment.
