Assessment Services

Functional Capacity Evaluations

Functional capacity evaluations (FCEs) are one or two day comprehensive assessments designed to answer questions regarding a client’s physical and/or cognitive abilities. This may be related to work and/or activities of daily living.

In addition to assessing physical and cognitive abilities, the FCE may also look at emotional and environmental factors that may be impacting function.

Meridian Rehabilitation offers medical-legal and non-legal FCE options and our therapists are experienced in both physical and cognitive evaluations.
