Services Offered

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a physical performance test ordered by a physician to examine an employee’s job specific capabilities before returning to work after an injury or illness. Through this evaluation, AIR will be able to assess the ability of the employee to return to his or her former position or make recommendations in the event that the employee is not physically capable to do so. The report generated by the FCE is a legally defensible document that allows for standardization across the scope of your company’s specific jobs.

Post-Offer Employment Screening

AIR Physical Therapy can both develop, and perform post-offer employment screens. The screens are designed according to the job description.   If a post- offer employment screen does not exist, an on-site job analysis can be performed to help develop a customized screen for the job.

Onsite Functional Analysis

AIR will come to your worksite to perform an analysis of a job, and identify tasks that have risk for potential injury. Recommendations will be provided for injury prevention. AIR will also look at the accuracy of current job descriptions or write a customized physical demand analysis.
