Return to Work
Our Services Include:
Fit for Duty Evaluations
This evaluation is a mini-assessment of analyzing the specific job requirements of an occupation and assessing an individual’s ability to perform his or her tasks to return to the exact occupation in a safe manner following a disability or injury.
Our team uses a software-based program to objectively analyze specific job functions and provides a detailed report discussing essential job duties and physical demands required to perform these tasks.
Functional Capacity Evaluations
This evaluation is used to provide specific objective measures to quantify one’s ability to perform physical demands related to a specific occupation or general occupation. It is typically used in workers’ compensation and in disability determination. This evaluation can be used throughout the post rehabilitation process to assess recovery and to determine appropriate job placement.
A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is frequently used in legal cases to determine how an injury has impacted an individuals ability to function or return-to-work. It may also be requested to determine extent of disability asa result of the injury. Specific measures are taken throughout the evaluation to ensure reliability and validity with all evaluations.
The FCE is comprehensive and requires analysis of a medical professional who is trained in providing this type of evaluation. All of our FCE evaluators are certified and have over five years of experience as an occupational therapist or physical therapist.

Improvement in the work environment has been proven to increase overall job satisfaction and increased job performance. With an ergonomic assessment or ergonomic training, the goal is to assess the risks associated with injury and minimize risks within the work environment that could be a potential cause for injury.

For those offices that cannot easily be accessed by one of our consultants or if an onsite evaluation does not fit within the fiscal budget, we do offer a remote option for performing an ergonomic assessment and training.
