Physical Performance Tests and Programs

Pre-work screen

Functional test that a physical therapist performs to determine an individual’s ability to perform the physical requirements of a specific job.

Functional job analysis

The platform for the pre-work screening process, this exam specifically identifies the physical and functional aspects of each job. This is an onsite analysis used to identify and document the objective job(s) measures that will be used to construct the pre-work screen.

Functional capacity assessment

A comprehensive, objective test of a person’s abilities in work-related functional tasks. At times, this is used as a preliminary test to determine functional status and capabilities prior to beginning a work hardening program.

Work hardening/work conditioning programs

A highly specialized rehabilitation program that simulates workplace activities/surroundings in a monitored environment to enable the patient to return to work. These programs may be developed and carried out by an occupational therapist and/or physical therapist. The goal is to create an environment in which returning workers can rebuild psychological self-confidence and physical conditioning by imitating their customary work routine.

Physical performance tests
