Conducted by a Physiotherapist

The standardised Work Well Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) V.2 is utilised at the VCC. It provides comprehensive testing of a person’s ability to perform work related tasks. Performance is rated and abilities and limitations are compared to tasks required in job descriptions. It includes assessment of ability to lift and carry weight, sitting and standing tolerances, balance, walking, the use of stairs and ladders, grip strength, dexterity and as well positional stability and flexibility of the trunk and lower limbs. The assessment is based on a thorough history taking, clinical examination and functional testing.

Takes approx 3 hours.
