Functional Capacity Evaluation

This comprehensive and detailed assessment is undertaken by an Occupational Therapist specialist in vocational rehabilitation.

The assessment determines the client’s current physical ability to perform work duties, to help them return to a work role, or alternatively, gain new employment. Using a standardised activity-based approach (Matheson System) and focusing on abilities rather than limitations, this assessment identifies abilities in areas such as mobility, fitness, stamina, strength, agility, co-ordination and dexterity.

This assessment is for any client who is demonstrating restrictions in their functional capacity for work due to an injury, a health condition or long term disability making it difficult for them to return to work without specialist guidance.

Immediate Needs Assessment (INA)

An INA is a thorough, holistic and clinically reasoned face-to-face assessment with an individual who has sustained an injury or who is suffering from a medical condition which  impacts their ability to complete activities they were able to do prior to the injury or illness.

Telephone Diagnostic Assessment (TDA)

This is a cost-effective assessment that provides an overview of the injuries sustained or illness manifestation detailing medical and treatment intervention, ongoing and unmet rehabilitation needs, the individual’s occupations, and social circumstances.

Post-concussion Screening Assessment

This is a remote assessment for individuals with ongoing, often subtle, symptoms of concussion.  The assessment is undertaken by a specialist neurological Occupational Therapist using evidence based screening tools to provide guidance on timely and effective intervention to improve an individual’s functional performance in everyday life.

Occupational Therapy Functional Assessment

This is a face-to-face assessment with the individual, in which all relevant areas of functional performance are assessed e.g. personal and domestic activities of daily living, occupational performance (leisure and social interests) etc.

Cognitive/Fatigue Assessment

This assessment provides objective evidence of cognitive capacity through psychometric tests and self-report questionnaires. These address aspects such as memory, verbal comprehension and fluency, processing speed and logical thinking as well as impact of fatigue and attention/concentration.
