Functional capacity assessment
development program

For a person suffering from persistent pain because of their work, the functional skills assessment and development program can positively improve general or specific functioning. The program is designed for workers who are struggling to perform their tasks and whose condition is improving slowly or very little.

In our facilities equipped with precise measuring instruments, the occupational therapist uses standardized tests, therapeutic activities and work simulations for evaluation purposes.
At a later stage, specific exercises and activities that stimulate activation and reinforcement, carefully selected according to the initial assessment, can be developed to promote increased functional capacities and improved physical and mental health.
This treatment ensures the worker a safe and effective return to work, while also ensuring their well-being.

Why use the functional capacity assessment program?


To obtain a complete assessment of a person’s functional capacities.


To formulate goals and recommendations for rehabilitation strategies.


To obtain a professional opinion on the capacity of a person to assume his pre-injury position.


To have an opinion on the observance of functional limitations issued by medical authorities.
