Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

What is it:

The Functional Capacity Evaluation is a reliable test used to help determine an injured person's ability to tolerate work activities. Using the Matheson System, our certified evaluators will outline the person's work capacity. Functional tolerances for work positions, dexterity, upper extremity use, level of effort, and overall subjective reliability. The Matheson System is designed to help close workers' compensation cases. Our evaluators have experience as expert witnesses in regards to functional testing. We are "thinking evaluators" who will answer your questions!
