Functional Abilities Evaluation
Computerized assessment tools provide accurate determinations of a worker’s functional abilities and his/her ability to safely meet the demands of the job. The results guide rehabilitation and the work conditioning / work hardening program for optimal results.
Physical Demands Analysis
Each job has a unique set of physical and cognitive demands. Based on worker and supervisor interviews, observation of a worker in the position and a review of the job description, our therapist determines the specific demands of the job.
To obtain objective measures of the job demands, the demands are matched to the National Occupational Classification (NOC) and/or the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT).
Job Site Analysis
Using ergonomic principles, we analyze the work site to determine risk factors for injury, such as excessive lifting, carrying or awkward, sustained postures.
We can then recommend workplace modifications to optimize function and to reduce the risk of injury.
With skill and knowledge relating to ergonomics, physical and cognitive impairments, as well as workplace legislation, our therapists facilitate worker success at work through accommodation.
Transferable Skills Analysis
Sometimes, despite focused therapy and job accommodations, a person cannot return to the work they once did.
That’s when a vocational assessment can identify transferable skills that can be applied to other jobs.
