FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATIONS
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)
Direct Performance PT is excited to offer XRTS FCEs at select locations (Norfolk and Midlothian).
A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is a test to determine the physical capabilities of the client. XRTS is a method of FCE used to provide maximally valid and accurate results. The XRTS method has been recognized as legally defensible and several research articles have been published to support its use.
The FCE involves aspects of lifting, carrying, pushing/pulling, balance, fine motor, and cardiovascular tolerance. In accordance to the response to these activities, a capacity is determined which is based upon the US Department of Labor's Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT).
