It is important for our customers to receive the most objective information possible to be able to support an individual’s recovery journey. Metrics offers assessment services including Physical and Cognitive Demands Analyses, Functional Screening (cognitive and physical), as well as more comprehensive Functional Capacity Evaluations for both physical and cognitive presentations. The cognitive assessments can be completed by virtual means.  We also offer both on-site and virtual ergonomic assessments.

Job Demands Analysis (JDA) is an assessment that quantifies the demands associated with a specific job. Completed as a physical or cognitive assessment and simple or complex analysis. (Physical Demands Analysis = PDA; Cognitive Demands Analysis = CDA)

Functional Assessments

  • Functional Screen (Mini / Functional Abilities Evaluation) is a physical or cognitive assessment tool to obtain baseline functioning of several key job demands. Can be used as a pre-treatment assessment to gauge treatment needs, as well as a tool to assess imminent RTW readiness and RTW planning and preparation.

    • Full Physical Screen

  • Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive 1- or 2-day physical or cognitive assessment to obtain an understanding of an individual’s functional ‘capacity’; unlike an FAE that assesses an individual’s current ‘ability’. It can be a general assessment of function or customized to a specific job that requires detailed job information about the demands needing to be evaluated.
