Functional Capacity Assessment

Functional capacity assessment (FCA) is a comprehensive physiotherapeutic examination determining an individual’s ability to perform work-related tasks.

The FCA involves using verified physical regimens to get information about an individual’s health and medical history. The assessment tests the individual’s physical and cognitive abilities, as well as their limitations, to determine their work capacity.

We use the assessment results to create a report for the person’s employer or whoever it may concern.

This report includes information about any medical conditions the person has, how it affects their ability to do their job, and possible future prognosis.

The report will help the employer, or relevant personnel, decide about the person’s ability to work and what precautions may be necessary when engaging the person.

Duration of Functional Capacity Assessment

The typical duration of a functional capacity assessment (FCA) can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of assessment, the complexity of the case, and the specific tests and measures being used.

A typical FCA can take anywhere from one to several hours to complete. A basic FCA can take around an hour to complete, while more complex cases may take several hours. We can break the assessment into multiple sessions if needed.

A basic FCA that only includes a physical examination and basic functional tests may take less time than an FCA that also includes other tests.

The case’s complexity also plays a role in the duration of the FCA. For example, an individual with a traumatic injury may require a more extensive evaluation than someone with a minor musculoskeletal condition.

The specific tests and measures used in the FCA can also influence the duration of the assessment. For example, some tests and measures, such as range of motion tests, can be completed relatively quickly, while others, such as functional tests, may take longer. 

Location Concerns

We prefer to do your functional capacity assessment at our fully equipped Family Physiotherapy Clinic in Edmonton. However, depending on the severity of the situation and the availability of necessary equipment, we can perform an onsite evaluation at your chosen location.
