Functional Capacity Evaluations

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) or Functional Abilities Evaluation (FAE) is a clinic-based assessment conducted by our FCE certified Occupational Therapists at our clinic in Winnipeg.  Our FCE evaluator is Matheson System Trained and has 15 years experience conducting med-legal FCE's.

 

We provide both physical and cognitive functional capacity evaluations. Symptoms related to mental health, cognitive and physical function are considered.

 

An FCE is a method of measuring an individual's ability to perform specified tasks on a safe and defensible basis.  Standardized measures for consistency of effort and reports of disability and pain symptoms are incorporated into the assessment protocol. The purpose of an FCE is to collect information about the functional limitations of a person with a medical impairment. In addition, the FCE can be used to determine if the individual will be safe in performing various job tasks and if job accommodations will be required.  

 

If work capacity is in question by employer, insurer or lawyer, the clinic-based Functional Capacity Evaluation is your answer!

Cognitive Screenings and Mental Health

Our Occupational Therapists conduct cognitive screenings when there has been a change in cognitive status and there may be concerns about memory, judgement, brain fog and more!

These standardized screenings may be part of a mental health initial assessment, or be helpful if cognitive issues are observed or reported during therapy session,
