Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

CVE’s Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) evaluates an individual’s physical capacity to perform work activities in a specific job.  If a specific job has not been provided/identified, then a synopsis of an individual’s general physical abilities is determined. CVE’s FCE process can compare the individual’s health status, body functions and structures to the demands of the job, a particular activity or a work environment. CVE utilizes the Joule FCE system by Valpar which consists of a battery of standardized, criterion-referenced testing over one or two days that offers results in performance-based measures and demonstrates a predictive value about the individual’s return to work or function.
