An evaluation of the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of OccuPro's functional capacity evaluation

Jim Mecham, Vic Zuccarello, Carrie Scheel, and Ryan Mattes – 2018
The overall conclusion that can be drawn is that multiple therapists could use OccuPro's FCE method with the same patient or multiple patients and have confidence they will achieve consistent results and make sound return-to-work or residual functional capacity decisions.

Inter-rater Reliability of the OccuPro Functional Capacity Evaluation

Renee Buckley, Jody Ferracane, Lucy Pickerill – 2013
We found the OccuPro FCE upper extremity subtests to have a moderate to excellent inter‐rater reliability with subjects who have suffered an upper extremity injury. Results of this study provide clinicians confidence in the use of the OccuPro FCE upper extremity subtests to measure the gross motor, fine motor, grip strength, and pinch strength with patients who have an upper extremity injury.

OccuPro Functional Capacity Evaluation: A Study of Inter-Rater Reliability

Chris Bates, Josh Hint, Brian Zamzow, Mike Lundstrum, Daniel Prescher – 2012
The OccuPro FCE had poor to moderate inter‐rater reliability for the five upper extremity sub-tests with 15 healthy adult participants. Future research should be completed with a more objective ordinal rating scale along with new methods of data collection.

The Intra Rater Reliability of Lifting, Carrying, Pushing/Pulling of OccuCare's Functional Capacity Evaluation

Naga Mahesh Devaguptapu – 2011
The ICC scores of this study revealed a good to excellent intra-rater reliability for occasional/frequent material handling subtests (lifting & carrying) for OccuPro's FCE.

The Inter Rater Reliability of Lifting, Carrying, Pushing/Pulling of OccuCare's Functional Capacity Evaluation

Ashok Kumar Gunda – 2011
Overall the ICC scores of this study revealed a moderate to good inter-rater reliability for occasional and frequent material handling subtests (lifting & carrying) for OccuPro’s functional capacity evaluation.
