RECOVERY PARTNERS: THE REHAB EXPERTS
Functional Assessments provides an accurate gauge of capacity
Functional Assessments evaluate an individual’s capacity to perform physical and/or psychological tasks and offer a baseline measurement of ability.
Our qualified allied health team including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Exercise Physiologists, and Psychologists, perform these assessments within a controlled environment e.g. consultation rooms.
These assessments help us to understand an individual’s functional tolerances for physical and/or psychological activities following a noted health condition that has limited their performance previously.
When is a Functional Assessment needed?
- When it is unclear as to the individual’s ability to perform certain tasks and for what durations.
- If an individual is reporting aggravations of their condition due to task performance within their rehabilitation programs.
- If there is a risk that an individual’s rehabilitation program may exacerbate their condition.
- When medical professionals require a greater clarity to help guide return to work planning.
What happens after?
A comprehensive written report is provided within five business days which outlines the functional limitations of an individual.

Working with Recovery Partners to assist injured employees back to work faster delivers financial benefits. Last year we received a $150,000 refund on our workers compensation premium, and this year we are anticipating a similar result.
Since engaging Recovery Partners, we have significantly reduced our number of claims, our estimate has also notably decreased, with an improved overall RTW time frame. We have also managed to establish stronger relationships with workers and stakeholders in partnership with Recovery Partners.
