This is a structure and goal oriented treatment program designed to return a person to a specific job. Simulated work activities are designed to restore physical, behavioral and vocational function. It also addresses issues of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and worker behaviors. This program is typically 5 days a week with the patient starting at two hours a day and progressing up to six hours a day. The patient works on range of motion, overall body strength, endurance, and position tolerance. A customized program is developed by the therapist to fit the patient's job description.
The goal is to get the patient to their highest level of function for employment.
This is a work-related, intensive, goal oriented treatment program specifically designed to restore your neuromusculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary functions. The objective is to restore the patient's general physical capacity and function so the client can return to a non-specific job.
Functional Capacity Evaluation
AccuCare's licensed physical therapists are trained and certified to perform the Ergo Science Physical Work Performance Evaluation (PWPE). The PWPE is a highly structured test designed to report the level of work a patient is able to perform at that given time. The PWPE can test for maximum objective strength without risk for further injury. This enables the therapist to objectively assess a patient's current level of function. The PWPE is the only FCE that meets the 1993 Supreme Court's standards and cannot be throw out of court under Doubart vs Merrell Dow.
The PWPE is a one day 4 hour test with the finding reported to the patient's doctor and/or case manager within 4 business days.
