Abstract

Functional testing has evolved to a new sophistication, and is currently used in a variety of situations to assist the employer and physician in safely placing an individual at the job site. The functional capacity evaluation can be employed in several ways, not only to place individuals safely in jobs, but also to monitor their progress throughout recovery from an injury or illness and aid in the establishment of vocational counseling and planning. Many legal issues now alter employer techniques for hiring and assigning people to jobs. This state of affairs places increasing importance on functional testing.
