Functional Capacity Evaluations
Reliability & Validity
At MMI we administer FCEs with evaluation tools and methods that are validity based and legally defensible in the field of occupational rehabilitation. All testing is performed with standardized protocols that are specific to each case in question. Each FCE will provide information on reliability of physical effort, reliability of pain reports/behaviors and safe levels of functional capacity.
Our standardized protocols determine the level of participation and activity that is right for the patient following rehabilitation, providing the highest probability for return to work without re-injury.
