a two-day assessment of your physical capabilities and your work-related capacities. Evaluations are customized based on your specific return-to-work guidelines and may include:

  • job-specific testing
  • fit-for-duty evaluation
  • upper extremity testing.

Results are summarized and recommendations given.

Physical performance testing

This two-hour assessment helps define whether you can return to work and at what capacity. Referrals are often from health care providers seeking input related to disability benefit eligibility. A formal report (R-33) based on testing results and recommendations is sent to the referring provider for signature.

Pre-placement screening

Job-simulated, objective measurements help determine a prospective employee’s physical abilities. These evaluations identify job-related essential criteria for safe, appropriate and effective job placement. Results are sent to the employer.

Work conditioning

Injured workers can return to work quickly and safely by progressing in a supervised program of work conditioning that includes:

  • simulated job activities with body mechanics
  • instruction
  • aerobic conditioning
  • flexibility
  • strengthening exercises.

Hours and days are depend on your conditioning needs and return-to-work goals. Staff members are available to meet for ongoing progress reports. Physical capacities forms and recommendations are provided upon completion.
