Physical Capacity Profile® Testing System

The Physical Capacity Profile® (PCP) testing system is used by medical teams for post-offer or pre-employment physical exams, fit for duty, and functional capacity evaluations (FCE’s) conducted on behalf of employers. 

Through computerized software, a comprehensive collection of 28 maximum strength measurements are collected in as little as 30 minutes. Results are available in minutes for both the medical team and employer. 

The medical information is obtained and measured utilizing standards from the Department of Labor’s (DOL) five classifications of work and the American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines. The PCP Testing System is ADA and HIPAA compliant and has successfully undergone EEOC audits.

Physical Capacity Profile® (PCP) network locations have collectively tested over 220,000 employees. Current end users include:
  • Public and private corporations
  • Large hospital systems
  • Municipalities
  • Self-insured workers’ compensation funds
  • Statewide trade associations
  • School districts
PCP Testing Allows You to Answer 3 Important Questions:
  1. Does your new hire have the strength and fitness required to do their job?
  2. Does your new employee have a pre-existing injury?
  3. Is your employee ready to return to their job after recovering from an injury?
