What Are Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE's)?
Nova Physiotherapy has been offering Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE’s) since January of 2011, serving clients in the Halifax-area from our location in Timberlea.
What are FCE's and why are they important?
"Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE): A comprehensive functional test designed to measure the maximum safe functional abilities of a worker across a broad range of physical capabilities. An FCE is sometimes used to better understand complex cases, extended disability duration, or for vocational rehabilitation planning."
