Functional Capacity Evaluations

Assessing Functional Abilities through Nationally Certified Assessments

At University Hospitals, we offer nationally certified assessments to determine disability status or determine if a patient can return to a normal job with specific tasks. This functional assessment, occupational therapist registered (OTR)-certification through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, is used for standard functional capacity evaluations. This testing process is very comprehensive and can last up to four hours.
