Functional capacity Evaluation / work assessment
Functional capacity evaluation uses a tool of standardised tests to assess medical, functional and fitness level of a client.
This kind of evaluation is applied mostly on clients that are severely ill, injured and cognitively impaired so to evaluate their level of impairment thus being able to:
1. Determine functional ability
2. Indicate loss of amenities
3. Prescribe relevant remedies or aftercare for the client
This is a programme that uses standardised tests to test or evaluate the fitness level of a client. It focuses more cardiopulmonary and respiratory testing thus giving results on the fitness ability of a client.
