Answers to common questions
Why does the functional capacity evaluation need to be done on two consecutive days?
The lifting tasks of the functional capacity evaluation are repeated to provide a measure of what a person could do consistently, and to provide a test of validity for the first day's performance.
Do we always need to do the whole functional capacity evaluation?
No. The functional capacity evaluation (FCE) can be tailored to measure those performance areas that are likely to be encountered in a specific job or set of jobs. The whole FCE is useful when trying to determine what overall capacity a person has to be used in searching for a job match.
