Have you had requests for functional capacity evaluation tests and wondered what FCE equipment do I need to start an industrial rehab program?

For physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers and other medical providers, the answer to finding FCE equipment for an industrial rehab program is very simple. Before equipment though you may need to research training and FCE certification. This may include becoming a Certified Functional Capacity Evaluator. Certification is not required, but it can help you in marketing your services and provide credibility to your potential clients. Once training and certification is complete, consider functional capacity evaluation software. There are many good systems but choose one that is always updating their software and has many return-to-work testing options
