Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a series of Physical Performance Tests to determine client's ability and functional limitation in comparison to their occupational physical demands.

We utilized computerized ARCON FCE system which is capable of providing real time force exertion graphs and simultaneously monitors heart rate changes continuously during FCE to determine the consistency, reliability and validity of efforts during standardized National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) tests.

ARCON FCE system was listed as one of the recognized systems with peer-reviewed published research and standardized instruction manual in the American Physical Therapy Association, journal of physical therapy;
