Physical Capacity Profile® Testing

Physical Capacity Profile® Testing (http://www.pcpworks.com/) is a patented testing system that will help you reduce employee injuries and claims.

Job Descriptions

The specialists at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers - SWMO will conduct onsite reviews to determine the physical requirements of a job. We use our skills along with a force gauge to determine the actual forces of specific job tasks.

We then categorize jobs according to one of the five levels as mandated by the federal Department of Labor standards.

We will make recommendations to assist employers in reducing forces associated with certain job tasks.

This process is also a key component to physical ability testing.
