Our staff completes the ErgoScience™ PWPE to provide the most up to date, standardized testing methods providing a concise and accurate FCE. One day and two-day testing formats are available. The One Day format consists of three to four hours of standardized assessment and the Two Day format involves two consecutive 3-hour days. Both formats include a thorough review of medical history; general musculoskeletal screening; an objective measurement of physical abilities in areas of dynamic strength, positional tolerance, mobility; coordination and endurance. Job simulated activities specific to the patient’s specific job demands are incorporated at the end of the test to assure a good match between the worker and the job tasks. Test results include work abilities classification based on job demands and the U. S. department of labor work classifications (sedentary, light, medium, heavy) over an 8-hour workday. When referring a client to complete a Functional Capacity Evaluation, it is best if he/she has completed all of the rehabilitation options (i.e. Physical Therapy, Work Conditioning, etc.) prior to participating in the test. This will assure that we are measuring the client’s maximum physical abilities so that we can determine their potential to return to work.
