Functional Abilities Evaluations
FAE reports are designed to objectively determine a client’s ability to function. Objective assessment measures include:
- testing for positional tolerances (sitting, standing and walking);
- strength tolerances (lifting, carrying and pushing/pulling);
- dexterity (fingering, handling, feeling), and
- endurance (aerobic capacity).
The goals of an FAE, and its measurable results, can be utilized for such purposes as comparing a client’s pre-injury work status with their current functional tolerances in performing the duties of their job (preferably by way of a Job Site Analysis). Additionally, FAE’s can be utilized to address issues with housekeeping/home maintenance tasks, as well as caregiving responsibilities.
